Why do candidates associated with Gary Chartrand feel the need to be deceptive?
Just call me Gary is what half a dozen people have told me he says when they first met him. He’s on the board of numerous charities, love him or hate him, he is involved in education and willing to spend huge amounts of money, and I bet he even rescues puppies and helps old ladies across the street too.
He’s also the most dangerous man in Florida education and the people he supports feel the need to stretch the truth to get elected. First there was Ashley Smith-Juarez in 2012.
And now there is Willie, who sent out a false and despicable flyer denigrating his opponent Paula Wright.
You know what else these two have in common? The tens of thousands of dollars that Chartrand and his friends have funneled into their campaigns.
