John Featherman, the Republican nominee challenging U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, chairman of Philadelphia’s Democratic Party, in the 1st Congressional District, just released a country music campaign song calling his opponent "shady."
“So this hear Bob Shady, he is the head honcho, he rules the Democratic Party like a king,” the song goes. “If you want to do some business here in Philly, get down on your knees and kiss his ring.”
Unconventional videos (see here and here) are the centerpiece of Featherman’s campaigns. The issues page on Featherman’s web site is described as “a work in progress” and promises “substantive views” will be posted by March 23*. Featherman’s web site accuses Brady of having no issues page on his campaign web site. That claim appears to be inaccurate.
Featherman, a real estate agent, doesn't have deep pockets to air his new song. He has raised $5,577 this year for his campaign and had $2,375 in the bank as of Sept. 30, according to his most recent campaign finance report, due Monday but filed early.
