I caught Hedrick on Victoria Taft's show today, dissing David Castillo pretty hard and dismissing the earlier allegations that he seems to own the unheard of before now washingtonstatepolls.com or whatever it is.
The suggestion is simple:
Find out who owns and operates the site, and put them on the Taft show.
And if you can't do that, stop referring to it.
There's rarely any such thing as "coincidence" in politics. That this poll magically appeared right when you needed it to is kind of weird.
So, the fix is simple. Whoever owns this site would love the publicity, I'm sure, and be thrilled to defend their methodology.
If you can’t figure out who actually owns it and how they got where they are, then dude, you need to get away from it and stop deluding yourself into believing that you’re the “leading Republican” about anything.
And if it turns out that you are behind this web site, then you will have destroyed your political career almost as much as you will if I find out your portrayal of your military record isn’t quite what you claim it is.
If you're not, then you've got nothing to worry about. But as of now, it almost seems like Herrera is paying you like she tried to pay Boyd to yank votes from Castillo. But that can't be true.... right?
