Katherine Harris's campaign mgr accused of petition fraud in Massachusetts
Katherine Harris's campaign manager accused of petition fraud in Massachusetts

RAW STORY
Published: Thursday August 3, 2006

Embattled US Senate candidate Katherine Harris' (R-FL) fourth campaign manager, Bryan Rudnick, was accused of petition fraud while working for Massachusetts Citizens for Marriage, today's issue of ROLL CALL has reported.

................

If signatures of support are what shes after, Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) has found the right guy to help her. Her new fourth to be exact campaign manager for her Senate bid, Bryan Rudnick, was involved in a petition controversy in Massachusetts in 2001.

Then, Rudnick was chairman of Massachusetts Citizens for Marriage, which championed the Defense of Marriage act. His group was accused of tricking voters into signing its petitions for a proposed ban on gay marriage by asking voters to first sign a petition to protect horses from being killed and sold as food, then asking them to sign a second time, on a petition to ban gay marriage.

Media outlets such as the Boston Globe reported that Save Our Horses claimed the other group used their feel-good petition to dupe voters into signing the gay-marriage ban. Voters were quoted extensively in news stories saying they didnt recall signing a gay-marriage ban petition and they remembered only the horse-meat petition. The horse petition failed, but the other more controversial gay-marriage measure succeeded.

When the controversy arose, Rudnick denied the fraud charges, telling reporters there was no bait-and-switch tactic.
