You’d think a guy whose father is in federal prison for fleecing investors might avoid bringing up parental misdeeds in a political campaign.

 

But trial lawyer and Democratic state Senate District 30 candidate Michael Steinger — whose father Joel Steinger was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for masterminding an $800 million insurance scam —  has been hammering his primary foe, state Rep. Bobby Powell, for Powell’s father’s 2014 arrest for aggravated battery and firing a gun in a home he and his son have shared.

 

It’s just part of the negativity between the rival Democrats as Tuesday’s primary approaches in the north-county district.
