More dirty tricks? For what purpose?
BALLOON TRACK OPINIONS POLLED
"...the surveyors claimed to be from the Times-Standard newspaper, Clark said.
They wouldn’t reveal their names, she added.
Times-Standard publisher David Lippman said that the newspaper has not hired anyone to do a survey.
“We’ve had employees, who’ve certainly been asking people,” he said. “We have reporters who are constantly out asking people their opinions.”
He added, “If anyone other than a Times-Standard reporter asked their opinion, then I don’t know who they are.”
"Citizens For Real Economic Growth spokesperson Larry Evans said that he is not aware of any business-to-business survey being conducted on behalf of CREG."
Hmmm. Reminds me of this:
"There have been rumors Gallegos supporters are launching a community fund-raising effort to fund the Palco suit. Gallegos and his staff say while they are open to such a proposal, they're not aware such a fund exists." ..."Salzman says he's heard some talk of a community fund, but he's not involved in that effort." April 30, 2004 Times Standard Front page story by James Tressler."
And of course, Gallegos' camp denied any participation in Julie Francis' PUSH POLL conducted during the last election.
