In keeping with the standard astroturfing approach, Fred O. Smith II gets in a jab at Rep. Allen before he finds an opportunity to laud Sen. Collins. But laud her he does.
Now, maybe this isn't the same Fred Smith who just weeks ago sat on the
Maine Republican Platform Committee. And perhaps it was another Fred Smith who was a 2006 County Chair in Sen. Snowe's re-election effort.
Maybe that was Fred Smith I. Or Fred Smith III.
I can't be sure. And since the Google is out for repair at the Kennebec Journal, we may never know.
For an explanation of why we care about this kind of astroturf, start here.
UPDATE: Anonymous, in comments, is correct: Number 13 was here.
