Taunton Tory council candidate forced to make public apology

AboutMyArea reports:

The Somerset County Council election took a step into the gutter today when Conservative candidate in West Taunton, Nick James, was forced to issue a public apology for personal attacks on his Lib Dem opponent, Alan Paul, and non-political officers of the Council.

The apology came after Police had warned the Conservative agent that a last-minute Conservative leaflet was illegal.

Impressively, the website even has a copy of the letter of apology.

Can't help but wonder how many of those will actually get delivered.
