All bets for a clean race for the 4th District State Representative seat have been called off after challenger Amy Biviano aired out incumbent Rep. Matt Shea's dirty laundry, circulating a mailer highlighting Shea's run-in with the law.
The flyer is titled "Lawbreakers Should Not Be Lawmakers" and Biviano said voters should know about Shea's character.
When she first signed up to run for state representative,� Amy Biviano said she knew it would be a tough race.
"I'm a democrat running in a very conservative district," she said.
video She was hoping to focus on issues such as education and ways to stimulate the economy. However, the race has quickly turned from politics to personal attacks.
"We don't need people who are hot headed and bullying like that in a legislature that is based upon negotiation and cooperation," she said.
The race heated up a few weeks ago when Shea took a picture of himself standing in Biviano's driveway, shortly after beating her in the primary by more than 6,000 votes.
"I said 'Look, that makes me really uncomfortable as a mother,'" Biviano said.
