Wake County school board member Chris Malone is getting the Heather Losurdo treatment from Progress NC Action in his run as the Republican candidate for the state House District 35 seat.
Progress NC Action, a liberal advocacy group, has created this website charging that Malone has "failed our schools." The website includes links to media reports about his relationship with fellow school board member Debra Goldman, the bus problems at the start of the school year and how budget cuts led to parents helping out with janitorial duties at schools.
"We need a legislator that will put kids first, not their dating life," says the website.
Progress NC Action also sent out this Halloween-themed e-card on Wednesday spoofing the "Night of the Living Dead" movie. The card says "don't crash and burn with Goldman and Malone."
Progress NC Action used similar tactics in the 2011 Wake school board elections against Heather Losurdo, a Republican candidate. The group created a website labeling Losurdo as the "queen of extreme" for her ties to the Tea Party movement.
