Opponents of GOP Congressional candidate Ozzie DeFaria tried to make an issue of his calling Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Out of Touch) Obama’s “attack dog”. In a fundraising email, the DeFaria campaign photoshopped a dog collar on DWS to emphasize the point.

Yesterday, WTVJ NBC 6 Miami ran an online poll asking if the Debbie with collar picture “crossed the line”? An overwhelming majority, heck a landslide in Democrat-friendly south Florida, said no, it does not cross the line. From the NBC 6 website:

“Eighty-five percent of the voters in the NBC 6 survey said they did not think Ozzie deFaria’s depiction of Debbie Wasserman Schultz with an apparent dog collar around her neck crossed the line.

Meanwhile, 13 percent said they did think it crossed the line and two percent were undecided.”

This poll means it is unlikely DeFaria’s GOP opponents will bring the issue up again. But expect Debbie and her allies to use this as part of her “play the victim” strategy.

DeFaria, the leader in CD 23 fundraising race, was named a “Young Gun” by the National Republican Congressional Committee.
