N07, Stroger camp cries "racism"

Todd Stroger's surrogates complained of the images on VoteStroger.com. See Sun-Times (Steve Patterson).

You make the call. Are the images unethical for political campaigns?

BTW, I have it on reasonably good authority VoteStroger.com is run by a Democrat with close ties to the mainstream Dem Party. In fact her ties are close enough that she feels she has to remain anonymous.

To what extent does Stroger's campaign strategy rely on Stroger getting Black votes merely because he's Black? Wasn't it fairly common during the primary for Westside Black pols to make the case to support John Stroger by saying that it was important to keep the office Black?

[UPDATE: Chicagoist (Scott Smith) compares Peraica's picture with another TV character.]
