More mail attacks



Some not so kind mailers about Tom Gallagher are hitting homes from the Conservative Values Coalition (funded by an array and gaming, development and business interests from Coastal Development LLC of New York - the development company for the Seminole tribe - Amheuser-Busch, and the Geo Group Corrections firm, among many others). One features a bullet-hole dotted Constitution: "Tom Gallagher: He wants a limit on our gun rights."

The other one's cover features a grainy picture of Gallagher and the header: "Gambling...Conflicts...Abortion. Is Tom Gallagher really a conservative now?''  It accuses him of having worked to expand gambling in Florida, putting "personal gain ahead of public service'' with stock trades and reminds voters of Gallagher's old statements on abortion, school prayer and sex education. "Tom Gallagher: 'Legendary playboy,' abortion supporter."
