Some independent voters in Ventura County must be shaking their heads today, trying to make sense of a glossy, attractive political mailer that showed up in their mailboxes yesterday. It was promoting a state Senate candidate, George Plescia, and the first clue that something may have been amiss was the headline: "Getting it done for San Diego."
That's right. Plescia, a former assemblyman, is running in the 39th Senate District in San Diego -- but his campaign mail was delivered to Ventura County households.
Yes, it was a mixup. Plescia shares the same consultant with congressional candidate Tony Strickland and somehow the wrong set of labels was attached to this mailer. I'm assured by consultant Joe Justin that the reverse did not happen -- that is, no Strickland mailers were sent to San Diego voters.
