You deserve equal time. I'm sure you're a nice gal and all, but your Deputy Campaign Manager, David Kochman is making accusations against Richard Moore without offering any proof and it really needs to stop.
I know it must be hard when people make hay out of things you actually said and did when you haven't even declared you are running for Governor. The response from your campaign leaves a lot to be desired. It's one thing to straighten out misunderstandings or to clarify the meanings of things you actually did say and do, but to accuse Richard Moore of unethical behavior without offering any proof whatsoever goes beyond the pale.
I don't approve of Jay Reiff's response to David Kochman's false accusation, especially since the SBI investigations were probably standard procedure and you were completely cleared - from what I've read - of having done anything wrong. However, his comment was in response to the unfounded accusation by your employee and is a little more understandable.
I've heard hints that your camp is behind the prolonged look the media and others gave to Richard Moore's record and campaign contributions. I haven't made hay out of it, because I can't prove you were. If you were, though, thank you. Moore has now been so thoroughly investigated by the press and bloggers that he can enter the campaign without that particular baggage hounding him.
Thank you for your service to our state.
P.S. I support Richard Moore. I am far more impressed with Moore than I am with Beverly Perdue. I haven't made my decision based on what Jay Reiff and David Kochman have done or said. Personally, I think they both need to just quit their yammering.
I'm not naive. I don't expect a completely pristine, friendly campaign. Reiff needs to remember that Perdue is not little Ricky Santorum (the last candidate/campaign he went up against) and Kochman needs to remember that whole thing about lying being bad. This has gotten old fast, but anyone who thinks this is only coming from the Moore camp is dead wrong.
