Grounded flier

In a recent flier from Mainstream Voters of WA they allege “by his own admission, Sen. Phil Fortunato works just half the time,” citing the Tacoma Tribune.

The Tribune, however, attributes several comments to Phil: 1, he spends an average of 2½ days in Olympia and 2, he is on call 24/7.

I cannot conclude then that Phil works half the time or that he works nonstop without sleeping. The flier’s backside asks, “How stupid does he think we are?”

As a professor I would never call anyone stupid. However, if I were grading this flier I would find it to be below standard in the areas of logic and candor.
