The first attack video of the mayor's race has popped up on YouTube. Called "David Briley Ducks," it rebukes the at-large council member for abstaining or not voting at all 55 times since 2000. That's 1 out of 3 votes, according to the video.
Who posted it? When we asked the Dean campaign, press secretary Janel Lacy said she'd never heard of the video. But we still think it's Dean's campaign or one of his supporters. Dean's the only campaign worried about Briley. The two candidates appeal to the same kind of liberals, and Briley could knock Dean out of the race if he wins too many votes next week. The Briley campaign wouldn't comment on the video.
