Name ID … At Any Price



So this pink Post-It note was discovered on a gas pump in Charleston, S.C. by one of our intrepid readers … the latest manifestation of increasingly informal efforts by insurgent political campaigns (and their supporters) to pick up cheap name identification against well-funded rivals.

“Who is Lee Bright?” the Post-It asks.

Obviously we know who Lee Bright is … heck, we filed a report on him a few moments ago.


Bright is a State Senator running in a “Republican” primary against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

(Wait … did we just fall for the oldest trick in the book?)

Curse you, random Lee Bright supporter!

Obviously most South Carolinians do not know who Bright is – which is why his supporters are engaging in asymmetrical adhesive warfare on our state’s gas pumps in an effort to drive traffic to his website. And if Bright’s¬†fundraising efforts don’t pick up (and soon), there’s a good chance most South Carolinians will never know who he is.

Unless he’s got a LOT of pink Post-Its …
