OutCue: SOC

Democrat Nancy Farmer recently posted three photos on her campaign web site.

She says the photos show men stalking and videotaping her.

And, she says her stalkers drive cars with bumper stickers endorsing her rival...Republican candidate Todd Graves.

But Graves has only one response.

OutCue: "would do that."
Contents: Graves says that it is ludicrous that Farmer would think that he has people stalking her because stalking implies malicious intent.

A Farmer spokesman says he thinks it's bizarre to have people videotaping Farmer all the time.

Democratic candidate Nancy Farmer says she thinks her Republican rival Todd Graves has people stalking her.

And she has photos to prove it.

Spokesman Chuck Miller says it isn't normal for men to follow Farmer everywhere with video cameras.

Contents: Miller says that people following her is bizarre and that Farmer's campaign will not go to such lengths.

Graves insists neither he nor his campaign is responsible.

But Graves admits his campaign does videotape Farmer at public campaign events.
