In February, 90 days remained before the June primary election and the mayoral campaign for Carl DeMaio sent out an email to potential donors.
It touted a SurveyUSA poll commissioned by KGTV, Channel 10.
The poll showed DeMaio up by 1 point over Bob Filner, 25 percent to 24 percent. The email, signed by Mike Turk, cited a list of apparently eye-popping facts to come out of the poll. But, most important for his purpose, was the fact that Nathan Fletcher and Bonnie Dumanis were trailing badly.
