Negative mailer surfaces in race for Fla GOP chair

13

November

SaintPetersblog found this mailer, speculating that it came from GOP Chairman Sid Dinerstein to rap state party chairman rivals Sharon Day, Deborah Cox-Roush and Tony DiMatteo as weak fundraisers. It was state to members of the state executive committee.

Dinerstein says it was NOT his mailer:

Dear RPOF Friends:
I DID NOT DO THAT MAILER!!!
It is very disheartening to see my name in a headline assuming I put out an anonymous “hit” piece on fellow RPOF members, especially since the reporter never called.
I received this mailer yesterday, postmarked Daytona Beach, hundreds of miles from my home. I do not donate to candidates to brag. I donate because my family has been very blessed and we are able to promote the candidates and the causes we believe in.
There is a lesson to be learned from this experience. I pledge: “If at any time during this Chairman’s campaign I think another candidate has acted or spoken inappropriately, I will call him or her BEFORE putting out a statewide blast.”
Thank you for listening.
TWENTY TWELVE STARTS TODAY
Sid
