Tinker Won't Repudiate Anti-Cohen Mailer 

The official position of 9th District congressional candidate Nikki Tinker is that she was not involved in the distribution of a mass mailout attacking opponent Steve Cohen for various alleged failings – including chronic absenteeism in the state Senate, opposition to state funding of K-12 programs, and over-protectiveness toward the sex-shop industry (all charges called distortions by the Cohen campaign).

But Tinker will decline to repudiate the mailer, said campaign spokesperson Joshua Phillips on Thursday. The Emily's List mailout, the second produced on Tinker's behalf in recent weeks that attacked Cohen, follows by days a similarly vitriolic attack on the senator by another opponent, Shelby County Commissioner Julian Bolton.
