So, DeMaio, blasts Fletcher accepting donations from McGrory and from former Mayor Dick Murphy. He ends with this: “I don’t expect Assemblyman Fletcher to speak for those two individuals, but I do expect him to return the money. If you want to base your campaign on ‘leaving behind a system that is completely dysfunctional,’ then you should back your words up with actions. Return the money.”nnAs we highlighted in last week's issue, DeMaio often forgets to look before he leaps. Today, the Fletcher campaign sent around an email provided to them by McGrory:
From: Carl DeMaio

Subject: Can you do the same for me?
I noticed you have maxed out to Fletcher for $500. It’s been 10 months, and he’s still last place in the polls – behind undecided. Can you also give $250 or more to me so you support me? Call me on my cell at (REDACTED) if you want to discuss. I’d really appreciate the same level of support at this time!
Update: U-T San Diego reporter Jen Kuhney posted a response from DeMaio's spokesperson, Jeff Powell, to her Facebook page. In it, Powell blames the email to McGrory on an intern.
