Here's the Democratic Party mailer labeling Norwood a Republican

Here's the second of two Democratic Party of Georgia mailers that allege mayoral candidate Mary Norwood is actually a Republican. Jim Galloway's got photos of the other. SpaceyG also provided a link to one.

The photo cut off the sources on the mailer. They are: (1) FEC Reports; Georgia State Ethics Commission Reports; City of Atlanta Campaign Contribution Disclosure Reports (2) Georgia Secretary of State's voter registration records, Reg No: 02588832; AJC, 10/10/09 (3) AJC, 10/21/08; Creative Loafing 5/5/09.

Here's the Norwood ad in which the candidate says she's voted for Democrats (and one quizzical Texan named Ross) in previous presidential elections.

There's been much debate as to whether the Georgia Democratic Party bungled by entering the Atlanta mayoral race, which is non-partisan. Blog For Democracy first broached the topic. Galloway offered some insight. Peach Pundit commenters debated it all day. Andre Walker, who sits on a party committee, expressed disappointment. In Macon, Georgia Women Vote's Amy Morton offered a wry note of support. Sid Cottingham, who lives closer to the Okefenokee Swamp than he does Atlanta, was shocked.

Guess we'll find out on Tuesday whether the donkeys' strategy backfired — or was the secret weapon Reed or Borders needed to chip away at Norwood's support.
