Committee targets Richard Corcoran with 'Scamelot' mailer



House 45 candidate Kathryn Starkey has said she’d stay on the sidelines while her two opponents duke it out.

But her consultant just jumped into the game.

The Committee for Freedom, which is chaired by Starkey consultant April Schiff, has a new mailer out attacking Richard Corcoran, who, along with Fabian Calvo, is running against Starkey in the Republican primary.

The “Scamelot” mailer targets Corcoran, a former Republican Party operative and one-time aide to Marco Rubio, over his use of a party-issued credit card and a quote he once made to this newspaper comparing his time in Tallahassee to Camelot.

The mailer features a cartoonish castle, quotes from others about “a sordid history” and also takes some liberties with Corcoran’s outfit. Check it out below:
