DEAR JOHN ADAMS, Attorney General candidate.
I would like you and the law enforcement officers (who I suspect would not appreciate your co-op of their image in this piece) on your latest mailing to my address. Specifically, the image you AUTHORIZED for this ad (shown) [above] doesn’t make me fear or dislike your opponent.
It makes me fear your judgment and dislike YOU. No person who cares about women would put this image on the front of his political literature—with his endorsement.
This tells me EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR MIND, nothing about law enforcement and nothing about your opponent. This comes from YOU and it is threatening, sir.
DO NOT exploit women and victims of crime in your literate ever, EVER AGAIN. Do not violate my mailbox ever, EVER again. I would like my local law enforcement office to know that they should respectfully request their disassociation with this piece.
The above was written by my good friend Steph White. Just one look at that mail piece will tell you everything you need to know about the Virginia GOP — they’re stopping at nothing this year to scare people into voting for them… or at the very least, not voting for Democrats.
In many cases, it’s doing the exact opposite.
I’ve shown this mail pieces to many, especially women, and all of them have been disgusted and outraged. It’s obvious that our friends across the aisle are pulling out all the stops to win this year’s Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, and House of Delegate races.
Don’t think for a second that the above mail piece was a one-off, either:
Seeing a pattern yet?
We have to do everything we can do make sure that these tactics are NOT rewarded next month. There are just a few weeks left before the election, and every little bit we can do to help our Democratic candidates matters.
