What happens when a candidate for office has his words edited into a racial smear?

The "Howard Dean or Louis Farrakhan" of the Armenian Community Those are some of the comments that appear on the edited YouTube video which are clearly design to frame 43rd Assembly District Candidate Greg Kirkorian as some close-minded, rabid Armenian Nationalist. The videos, along with a Glendale News Press story (a repugnant piece of agenda journalism)
on Kirkorian's supposed comments, has created a backlash in the Armenian Community and are causing some to speculate who is behind the twin video smears (if one really needed to guess).
Will Infant Assemblyman Mike Gatto denounce these types of ethnic smears against his opponent?
Gatto’s minions (it seems to me he’s pretty good at having others do his dirty work for him) have already sunk into the mud. They have taken parts of one of Greg’s April 24th speeches, thrown up a Youtube page, and are trying to make him seem like an extremist so he loses support. That may sound really inappropriate, abusing Genocide related material, but it gets worse. There’s even a comment posted on Youtube questioning why Greg would mention his candidacy during such a speech. You’ll notice, whoever wrote that is trying to make Greg look bad to the Armenian community as well. What’s most telling is that the video’s posting date and the date that the various commenters’ Youtube accounts were opened are within a week of one another. There’s no doubt in my mind that this is NOT natural, normal, political discourse, but a pre-plotted hatchet job. The behavior is also familiar because of what I and others I know have experienced at Gatto’s hands.
