A response to Roderick Sawyer's press release

Kari Steele responds to the Roderick Sawyer press release about the incident when a campaign worker from Ald. Lyle's campaign allegedly assaulted a worker from challenger Richard Wooten's campaign. The comment was written at the Concerned Citizen's of Chatham page on Saturday:
This was truly an unfortunate incident that should not have occurred. Despite the taunting, verbal abuse and profanities that were directed at the Alderman, as she and her 80 year old father left their polling place, this type of behavior ...is unacceptable and not representative of the Lyle campaign. The Press Release prepared by the candidates' PR person however is erroneous because the Alderman was in the act of removing her volunteers from the corner when they were again accosted by the 'purported victim.' After the parties were separated, she gave them the address of the office where they could find the volunteer. She did not flee. We look forward to the return of civilized campaigning as the run-off election continues. :-)
Steele is herself a leader of the 6th Ward Young Democrats and a former candidate for Water Reclamation District.
