An old trick
Placeholder Image
One of the oldest political tricks in the book is for a candidate to make a statement that goes like this: “I’m running an honorable campaign and I will never repeat the accusations I’ve heard that my opponent is an embezzler.” There are other variations: “Some refer to my opponent as a rotten scoundrel, but you’ll never hear me say anything like that.” So the protestations by Republican candidate Nancy Mace, who’s running against Sen. Lindsey Graham in the GOP primary, ring a little hollow.
