They can't even cheat smart...LOL [View all]

Justin Lamar Sternad, a Democratic primary candidate for Congress in Florida, gave a colorful response Tuesday to nagging allegations that his primary campaign has been orchestrated by Republican operatives.

"Kiss my 'lily-white' ass," Sternad emailed the Miami Herald, replying to a question about how he could afford numerous campaign mailers despite fundraising figures suggesting he spent almost all of his cash covering a filing fee for the 26th congressional district race.

The Herald reports that Sternad's campaign has raised a grand total of $11,262. With $10,440 going toward the filing fee, the campaign presumably has only $822 to fund its operation.

Despite these diminished totals, Sternad has sent at least six mailers to constituents in his district. The campaign literature, organized by a firm earlier employed by Rep. David Rivera, the Republican in the race, has been criticized as racially charged and misleading.
