NorthIowaToday.com has received a hard copy letter stating that Cerro Gordo County Supervisor Jay Urdahl is the the Republican party’s “favorite Democrat” and “leans on rich Republicans for even bigger bucks.”
The letter states that it is written by John Jaszewski, Urdahl’s opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary for Urdahl’s supervisor seat.
Jaszewski denies any knowledge of the letter or playing any part in the writing of the 6-page letter. “I have no knowledge of the letter, nor did I write it or give any quotes,” he said Wednesday.
The origin of the letter is not known; it was discovered in a blank envelope with no return address. The letter is being made available to the public for it to read and evaluate on its own.
The letter speaks extensively of Urdahl’s relationship with Dr. Gary Blodgett, a prominent Republican who has helped Urdahl raise campaign dollars recently. Just last month, Blodgett wrote his second letter asking Republican donors to give money to Urdahl’s campaign.
Urdahl currently has over $15,000 in his re-election war chest.
