Troxler: Enough with anonymous attacks in politics (and everywhere else)



Troxler: I got home the other day and found a political brochure in the mail. Sheesh, I thought, don't they know the election is over? It turns out it wasn't even about a public office. It was about who should be the next chairman of the Florida Republican Party.

Here's what struck me: The brochure was an anonymous attack on one of the people in the running, somebody named Deborah Cox-Roush of Hillsborough County. I do not know Deborah Cox-Roush from Adam (or Eve), but immediately was more disposed toward her.

Good grief! Really? Is this how we're going to do everything?
