The political mailers Robert Lee Ahn sent out when he campaigned in the 34th Congressional District primary drew complaints and some pretty choice comments. Some voters said the mailers sent during the 34th Congressional District primary campaign looked like they might be legal notices – mentioning “Attorney at Law” or “URGENT MESSAGE” or “New Polling Place Information” or “Jury Duty.” Now that Ahn is campaigning in the runoff election against Jimmy Gomez, the The L.A. Times asks if voters will once again see these kinds of mailers in their mail boxes?
While some voters found the fliers irritating, Joe Huser, a former campaign strategist, told the Times he found them shrewd and . Meanwhile, Ahn’s campaign defended the mailers and declined to say whether they would be sending out similar material in advance of the June 6 runoff.
One thing we do know: Mailers have been a huge part of Ahn’s campaign expenditures, according to The Times. They accounted for more than half the money he spent in the primaries.
The 34th Congressional District includes Boyle Heights, City Terrace, El Sereno, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, Northeast L.A., southern Echo Park and other communities
