Mayoral candidate David Miller says he is not responsible for the mudslinging bumper stickers against opponent Tom Martin.
"Our strategy is to keep focused on our game plan and, believe me, our game plan has nothing to do with tacky, nasty, verbiage that was used in that bumper sticker or anywhere else for that matter," said Miller.
Martin says he found out about the bumper stickers when Miller called to say their campaign was not behind them. The bumper stickers allegedly say "Tom's Taliban," and accuse Martin of being a dictator. Martin says he runs a positive campaign and was disappointed to hear about the stickers.
"For some of those things to be said in a bumper sticker is really disgusting. I think Lubbock is better than that and I think the citizens of Lubbock are much better and see through something like that for what it is," said Martin.
The mayoral election will be held May 13th.
