Police Hit DeMaio for Opposing Widow and Orphan Benefits
The San Diego Police Officers Association is out with a powerful new ad, shining a spotlight on Carl DeMaio voting against death benefits for widows and orphans of fallen police officers. The ad raised some controversy when it debuted yesterday, and the head of the Police Officers Association directed folks to the vote on June 27th, 2011 citing item S400. Carl wants to sue about it, and CityBeat has a good analysis of the question that amounts to this: "Bottom line: Only DeMaio voted against healthcare benefits for police widows."
It's a powerful ad, check it out:
