Most creative campaign material?

So, I got back from covering the Thomas Wright trial and there was an overnight pkg on my desk. I shook it and it rattled a little bit. Needless to say I was nervous! You never know what can be sent to a reporter.

I opened it up and inside was a mini trash can, a mini broom, and a rug. It was from Republican Attorney General candidate Bob Crumley. The objects were meant as visual aids to represent his belief that current Attorney General Roy Cooper is sweeping under the rug any concern over potential violations of state public records law concerning Governor Easley's Press office.

Get it..sweeping it under the rug..he sent a mini rug, broom, and trash can.

Seriously. I've never met the man, but that was one of the most creative campaign pkg's I've received. Particularly, since it wasn't a gubernatorial or Senate race.

I'll try to get a pic out of it for you to see.
