GOP’S MONICA LEWINSKY BUMPER STICKERS: “Monica Lewinsky’s X-Boyfriend’s Wife for President.” That’s how low the Virginia Republican Party has sunk, blaming Hillary Clinton for her husband’s indescretions. Retired journalist Carole Donoghue said she found a stack of bumper stickers at the Fairfax County Republican Committee headquarters in Fairfax. In case the state GOP tries to deny they had anything to do with the bumper stickers. The small print says it all: “Authorized by Republican Party of Virginia.”
Here’s more from the Talking Points Memo:
Carole Donoghue, a retired journalist, said she found the bumper stickers at Fairfax County Republican Committee headquarters in Fairfax, Va. The bumper stickers read “Monica Lewinsky’s X-Boyfriend’s Wife for President.” In small print, they included the words “Authorized By Republican Party Of Virginia.”
Donoghue talked to TPM hours after a spokesperson for Republican Party of Virginia denied the state party had anything to do with the anti-Hillary bumper stickers. The spokesperson told the Washington Post that the stickers were “an amateur effort” and the state party’s strategy “does not involve that.”
Donoghue’s discovery, however, raises questions about the denial.
Donoghue said she was out walking her dog on Sunday when she found an older man sitting on the pavement who looked like he “wasn’t doing well.” The man told her he was out campaigning for the Republican Party, and that he was diabetic and needed insulin, she said. Worried about the man’s condition, Donoghue drove him back to the county Republican Party headquarters.
