In her new campaign commercial, Ruth Roman Lynch, a non-partisan candidate in the Broward School Board District 5 race, touts her role as the “1st Vice Chair of Broward Democratic Party.” She also mentions her roles as “1st Vice Chair of Democratic Black Caucus of Florida” and “secretary of Affirmative Action Committee, Florida Democratic Party”. Just to hammer home her Democrat leanings to viewers, Lynch includes an Obama family photo with a note from First Lady Michelle Obama.
Gee, is this allowed in a non-partisan race? Shouldn’t her campaign disclaimer mention something about the “non-partisan” nature of the race? Another School Board candidate tried to inject Michelle Obama into Broward elections. We doubt the White House will be thrilled.
But the biggest problem with Lynch’s commercial? She uses that awful Dave Koz song.
