Someone posted a comment about the flier–here’s what it says (I got one today as well):

On the front there is a photo of a man’s hands holding the bars of a jail cell.  Then this text:

PROTECT YOUR HOME VALUE-

PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY TAX RATE

How?

Vote ‘Yes’ on the SPLOST!

Douglas County needs a new jail!

-To prevent court-ordered release of criminals

-To save tax dollars

-To keep our County Safe

VOTE ‘YES’ TO KEEP DOUGLAS SAFE

AND TO AVOID A PROPERTY TAX HIKE!

Lower Taxes, Less Crime = HIGHER Home values!

Protect your home Value–Vote YES!

Vote to approve the Public Safety SPLOST

NOVEMBER 3, 2009

http://www.KeepDouglasSafe.com (which, btw, is still not up and running)

On the back it has a photo of a man holding what looks like law books (very thick books) and next to it it says, “This federal judge can order the early release of prisoners, or require ankle bracelets and ‘home arrest!’ To the right of this is the same picture of the hands on the cell bars and the text reads: “This violent criminal hopes he does!”

Underneath this it says in large capital letters, “PROTECT YOUR HOME VALUE!  PROTECT DOUGLAS COUNTY! Vote ‘YES’ on the Public Safety SPLOST  EARLY VOTE OCT 26-30  ELECTION DAY: NOVEMBER 3.

Going to search Google for the “Committee to Keep Douglas Safe” who paid for this ad.  No results.  Well, we know the website is run by a consulting firm–I found this out earlier (it should be on the second or third page of this blog).  Perhaps this committee and the consulting firm are one and the same?  According to DNS information, the website was last updated on September 8–the date it was registered.  Possibly whomever created it didn’t want to build the website?  I think I’m going to email Landmark Communications (based out of Duluth) and get some answers.  Wait–you can’t email them.  How convenient.  One of the employees has a blog that hasn’t been updated since January.  But…he has a Twitter account–so I’ll contact him from there.
