Tilley (r) on HRCC robocalls: Uh, that didn’t go very well, did it? (October 28, 2010)
Campaign pulls calls following criticism
Robo-calls from GOP allege Norr had ties with pornography industry.

….Tilley, the 2011 House speaker-elect, also criticized House Democrats, saying they have run worse ads.
“These calls pale in comparison to the misleading and malicious attacks by the Missouri Democratic Party against Republican candidates across the state,” he said. “I call on my Democrat colleagues to apologize and to do as we have done by ending the negative personal attacks against Republicans contained in ads, calls and mailers in the closing days.”
Yeah, running those bogus robocalls about pornography and religious “family values” is equivalent to pointing out that republicans didn’t pay over $20,000.00 in taxes on time or that they happen to own a plane with a lobbyist. That seems to work really well for old media, you know, all things being equal.
