Did you get this political flyer in the mail?

Politicians have been wanting a lot of our attention lately.

Street signs are an easy and cheap way to get that.

Political mailers are more costly.

Or they should be.

One Valley woman sent pictures of a political flyer she says was in her mailbox with the rest of her mail.

It's promoting Kelli Ward's Senate campaign.

We sent it to the Postal Service.

They could not find any evidence that it was sent through their system.

They say the law is clear: "a mailbox is only intended for receipt of postage-paid U.S. Mail."

We don't know exactly what happened here.

We did get hold of the Ward campaign who provided the following statement:

"Our campaign sent thousands of mailer using the correct post office procedures. We also delivered campaign literature door-to-door and our team was instructed to never use the mailbox. If one of our fliers ended up in a mailbox, it was likely an inadvertent mistake by one of our campaign volunteers."

Any flyer in my door is annoying enough.

Now you know putting them in mailboxes, could come with a penalty.
