Spartanburg Lawmaker Calls Opponent's Flyer Deceitful

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. - Incumbent State Representative Donna Hicks Wood on Monday called out her opponent for circulating a flyer that appears to be a newspaper.

Her opponent (and stepdaughter), Heather Wood, is challenging Woods for the District 37 House seat, which serves Boiling Springs and Inman.

The flyer, which is printed on a newspaper broadsheet and is called The Boiling Springs Post, was sent out to 7,000 houses over the past few weeks. The newspaper features articles which make several claims against Wood's voting record.

"It deceives the good people Boiling Springs and Inman," said Wood. "They deserve better than that."

But Heather Wood's campaign manager (and father), Kerry Wood, said the newspaper is not deceitful, and makes accurate claims. 

"It clearly states at the bottom that it's paid for by a campaign," said Wood. "Does she really think that the community is that stupid?" 

Wood is Donna's soon-to-be ex-husband. 

Under state law, these kinds of publications are legal provided there is a disclaimer somewhere on the material. There is a disclaimer at the bottom of the newspaper's front page.

If Donna Wood wins in Tuesday's primary race, she will run unopposed in the General Election in November.
