Did you get the letter from Charlie Mason attacking Paul Vescovo?

I received a message today on Facebook asking if I had received the letter that was sent out by Charlie Mason attacking Paul Vescovo. I was able to get in touch with Mr. Vescovo who was kind enough to drop the letter by the house this afternoon. It was good to see him. It was not so good to see this letter.

You can read the letter here. Charlie Mason’s Attack Letter.

I’m sure the root of this letter is Pam Mason and Vic Hurlbert. For those that don’t know, Charlie Mason is Pam Mason’s father. Of course we know that Mason is now the current wife of our dear friend, Vic Hurlbert.

The letter is typical Mason/Hurlbert politicking, loose on facts, severely lacking on tact and character. It wouldn’t shock me for a second if Pam wrote the letter.

This all stems from the 2010 Presiding Commissioner’s race. Yes, it is a fact that Paul Vescovo donated money to Ed Quick. As I have covered before, Vescovo was not the only Republican/conservative to support Mr. Quick in that race. I myself voted for Quick.

What is disgusting and disappointing about this letter is that it dredges up the attack that Mason used on Quick back in 2010. This letter gives no context of Mr. Quick’s arrest which happened decades ago and was not a reflection upon his character in 2010. I never reported this, but I should have. I sat down with Mr. Quick a little bit before the election. The man teared up in front of me because his grandson had asked him if he was a criminal because he had seen the TV ad that Mason was running. What is hilarious, and it shows how little Mason/Hurlbert know about politics. They spent something like $75,000 on a race they would have probably won no matter what. People were angry at the democrats for a lot of things.

Do I agree wit Ed Quick’s politics? No. Would I have preferred Ed Quick to the chaos Pam Mason seems to bring with her. Yep.

The letter then goes on to attack Mr. Vescovo accusing him of being a RINO. Mr. Mason obviously doesn’t have a clue what this term means. It’s generally reserved for establishment politicians who have been in office so long they have lost sight of the principles they supposedly espouse. News flash, while Mr. Hurlbert and Mr. Mason have been running around playing politics and their silly games here in the county, Mr. Vescovo was off serving his country in Afghanistan between November 2009 to April 2011 as a police adviser.

Mr. Mason asks how can we trust Paul Vescovo? Frankly, I think it’s pretty simple. Mr. Boydston is friends with Pam Mason and Vic Hurlbert. Beyond that, anyone that has met Mr. Vescovo knows that the man exudes character and leadership. If you have received this letter, throw it away, it’s a waste of your time.

And by the way, one thing Mr. Vescovo shared with me today. He got a call from several Democrats asking for signs, and he was even leaving my house to go meet with someone. Sounds like the letter worked well.
