Do you vote halfheartedly, or not at all, because you don’t want to encourage them?

This post comes on the heels of the latest deceptive mailer to voters in House District 17 (at least voters in Bastrop and Lee counties) attacking Brent Golemon for supposedly having received a big donation from a lobbyist tied to a water authority. At first glance, it appears that this donation is $100,000 to $150,000. […]
