I don't mind admitting that I'm wrong. Early this morning, when an anonymous reader came on and noted that the FEC had Bruce Tytler listed under the 29th District, I went over to the FEC web site and looked through the images they had of the actual paperwork that Bruce Tytler filed. I reported that I had found documents in which Bruce Tytler had listed himself as a candidate in the 24th District, and showed a graphic of that paperwork.
Apparently, I didn't search hard enough through all that paperwork, for there was another document in which it appears that Bruce Tytler actually did type in District 29 as the place of his intended candidacy. Here's a picture of that document:
So, it appears that Bruce Tytler listed the 24th District on some documents and the 29th District on other documents. Unlike a couple of the candidates who are running as Democrats in this race, I'm no lawyer, so I can't tell you what this means for the legal status of the Bruce Tytler campaign, but it all around doesn't look good.
This kind of inattention to detail can now be used as a legitimate campaign issue against Bruce Tytler by his opponents. I'll point out that Tytler seems to have some pretty dedicated opponents, too. The only nasty rumors in this race - about his wife's sexual activities, even - have been directed against Bruce Tytler. Now, there are people scanning his FEC filings looking for any little mistake.
It goes with the territory, I understand that, but I have to admit that I'm curious. Who has Bruce Tytler made so angry? Why are a few dedicated people doing whatever they can to bring Bruce Tytler down? I'm not a Cortland resident, so I admit to being completely in the dark on this one. Anyone who knows better is welcome to leave comments here with their thoughts on the matter.
