The Pickett campaign was the first to sling mud and question whether Karen McNair’s family connections could cause a conflict of interest when it came time to set budgets for the different county departments. When the first round of this sailed out of the hands of Pickett’s campaign, Liberty Dispatch thought the Pickett machine would tell their people to shut that part of political hatchet job down but they didn't.
The mud has not stopped flying however. The Pickett campaign probably turned to this kind of desperate attack because the facts about Logan Pickett signing up to run for District Attorney with close to no experience makes him a hard sell to voters.
But whatever the reason, it is time to make it clear who has the most to gain by electing thirty year old Logan Pickett being elected D.A. In a family of lawyers with a circle of friends full of lawyers, Pickett’s election could mean millions of dollars worth of cases from clients who want to hire someone with an inside track to the prosecutor.
The McNairs do not have these kinds of connections. Neither do they have reputation for having things their way as we have discussed about the Picketts in previous articles. The Picketts are the ultimate insiders and should have been the last to start this kind of campaign. Look at every insult and every innuendo that has been hurled at Karen McNair and if you know the Picketts well enough, you can see that they are more guilty than those they accuse.
The Picketts can be nice people, but anyone who has lived here long and paid attention knows they are elitist. It is easy to be nice when it helps you to gain support to keep you on your throne. It is time to end their reign and let them come down here and breathe the air the rest of us breathe.
