That Mickey Kearns Flyer
by Geoff Kelly - posted 10:01 am, August 17, 2009
This weekend, the Mickey Kearns campaign fielded a street team of about 100 volunteers who pamphleted the city with flyers that looked like this:
Inside was the interview with Kearns we published two weeks ago. I got one at my house on the Lower West Side, and so did many other people.
I’m pleased that the Kearns campaign wanted to use the story to promote their candidate, and they are free to do so. But the flyer looks so much like a miniature version of our newspaper that I am compelled to clarify that we did not produce that flyer. Artvoice does not endorse political candidates, and we’re endorsing neither Kearns nor his opponent Byron Brown, nor the young hopeful Matthew Ricchiazzi. We’re not even endorsing Nobody.
