Well, campaigning door to door has taken on an all-new dimension over in Wolcott. The Waterbury Republican-American is reporting today that Democratic write-in Mayoral candidate Albert Podzunas has been accused of urinating in someone's yard.
Podzunas apparently came to the door of a woman named Traci Hare who was nursing her infant daughter. Hare told Podzunas to leave his campaign literature. He did. And she says, he left a little something else to remember him by. Returning to his truck with his back to her, Hare says Podzunas put his leaflets under one arm, fiddled with his pants and she saw "a spray of urine flying through the wind."
Hare called the police, and the responding officer found urine on the ground. Podzunas is dismissing the allegation as "very silly." However, he refused to submit to a DNA test to find out if the offending pee pee was his.
As a write-in candidate, Al Podzunas' entire campaign is an exercise in pissing in the wind... but if these allegations are true, what the hell is wrong with him? I know some Democrats behave like animals. Perhaps we should be glad he didn't crap in her yard.
I call on Podzunas to submit to a DNA test, and lay these serious allegations to rest. If he has nothing to fear, he should be perfectly willing to establish that the wizz is not his. Until then, a dark cloud and yellow stream will hang over his campaign.
