At least that’s the thrust of Greg Ball’s latest mailer in the 99th A.D., putting a spin on the fact that Republican Assemblyman Will Stephens voted for the state budget (as did most Republican legislators). That, Ball maintains, makes Stephens and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, a Democrat (insert gasps of horror here), cronies.
The mailer also uses what’s become Ball’s stock photo of Stephens — one that shows the incumbent with a shaggier, slighty out-of-control hairdo and a somewhat perplexed look on his face. Ball, who has been looking to knock Stephens off the Republican line for more than a year, admitted in an interview this week that the hair’s been doctored in the photo but claims nothing else is.
