This crap is completely unacceptable and appalling…see below for the Perriello campaign’s email asking for help in fighting back against the slime. I just donated and encourage everyone else to do the same.
The address listed for the company behind digital video ads that have been promoted on Facebook matches the address for SBDigital, a D.C. firm that employs Saslaw’s former campaign manager, Sam Sterling, as its director of campaigns and new media, according to the company’s website. Sterling and SBDigital did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The video ad, tagged “SBDigital – Bully 30” on the Virginians for a Better Future website, begins with a series of ominous headlines about President Donald Trump as a narrator says: “A bully threatens our way of life.”
“Who can we count on to stand up to Donald Trump? Not Tom Perriello,” the narrator says as a red “no” symbol appears over a photo of Perriello.
Richmond Times-Dispatch: “A mysterious PAC supporting Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam in Virginia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary has launched a last-minute digital ad that attacks former U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello…”
Help us fight back against the dark money coming after Tom. Rush a contribution of $5 or more now:
It just broke that a shady dark money PAC, funded by anonymous donors, is spending more than $80,000 on an ad attacking Tom. This comes the day after our data shows Tom leading this race 37-36.
This makes it very clear: We have the momentum and those trying to stop us are scared — so they’re lashing out with a last-minute, desperate negative attack.
We have to fight back. That’s why we’re setting a goal to raise $30,000 to respond to this attack and double down on our organizing and ads. I’ll be honest, we’re already being outspent, and if we don’t respond, we could lose this race with just five days left.
Rush a contribution now towards our $30,000 rapid response goal and help us make sure a progressive is elected as Virginia’s next governor:
Thank you and let’s do this,
