Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale).
The NRCC mailer accuses Schiff of deceiving senior citizens about
Rogan's views on Social Security and health-care reform and states: "The
News-Press said it best ... Schiff is 'malicious and misleading' and
'shows a lack of integrity.' "
The editorial in question, which ran Sept. 16, actually refers to a
Schiff campaign piece that accused Rogan of taking no interest in the
area's Armenian-American constituents until this election year.
The News-Press called the mailer a "malicious, misleading missive" and
said it "shows a lack of integrity" within Schiff's campaign.
"I asked Davis to make sure that never happens again," Rogan said.
The congressman said he hadn't seen the mailer but that his campaign
manager, Jason Roe, "felt it was misleading."
"I have no reason to doubt Jason's representation," Rogan said.
The News-Press reported Monday that Rogan did not return several calls
for comment on the issue, but the congressman did attempt to reach a
reporter about 11:45 p.m. Friday.
"I didn't think that that was fair," Rogan said of the mailer in his
message. "We've got so much stuff on Schiff that we don't have to have
people send things out that are sort of twisting the truth anyway or just
not presenting it in a fair light."
