CHICAGO (CBS) — Some sleazy tactics have surfaced in at least one race for alderman on the South Side.
Someone has circulated a letter in the 17th Ward, purporting to be from aldermanic candidate David Moore. He said it falsely claims to be from him, and contains a false confession about his supposed struggles with his sexuality and admissions of illicit sex.
Moore said he didn’t write it, it’s all lies, and it’s a deplorable tactic.
“It’s the lowest of the low. It’s the lowest of the low,” Moore said. “It’s untrue, it’s a lie. So I don’t have to defend lies. That’s one thing I don’t have to do. My friends, my family, my neighbors, everyone knows me.”
