BOB KRUMM: Urban Legends In The Wake of the Storm:

“An ATR spokesman comments, ‘the photo you have is of a photocopy of a piece of mail we sent out in September. Someone is either trying to be cute or deliberately trying to mislead.”

It’s not even the same flyer. The background is the same, but the words in the alleged flyer apparently have been photoshopped over the real ATR advertisement.

If you chose to be skeptical, congratulations; you are well-suited to wading through our nation’s sometimes confusing political minefield. If not, as a consolation prize, perhaps you have employment options with the Houston Chronicle or MSNBC.

Urban legends, or outright political fraud? More like the latter.
