Down memory lane: GOP spurns civility pledge

Item: RNC rejects joint civility statement

Hey, remember this:
"I do agree with the spirit of intentions of ensuring our campaign does not resemble the divisive partisan fights that are not appropriate for the office we seek," Michael Gableman's campaign said he wrote in a letter to Louis Butler.

Here are the terms of the pledge signed by Gableman:

Refrain from personal negative attacks on my opponent.
Focus on the issues, records and qualifications of myself and my opponent.
Ensure the integrity of claims ["statements"?] made by our campaigns by providing supporting evidence.
Publicly repudiate dishonest negative ads made by independent groups against our opponent.
