Provo mayor race getting good

Provo, the most LDS city in the country, has an interesting twist in their mayoral campaign. It turns out, according to today's Deseret News, that the current mayor has some problem with honesty.

His campaign literature says he took engineering and business classes at BYU, even though he may have been, well, less than honest.

He can provide evidence that he took engineering, but not business.

His response? "This whole campaign from my opponent is innuendo and attacks. It seems willing to pull out all the stops for political mileage. I think it will backfire because the people of Provo don't react well to those tactics."

Oh, and his supporters point out that his opponant has a *gasp* Democrat helping him in heavily Republican Provo.
