A member of Tommy Thompson’s campaign team sent out a mass email and tweet on Wednesday ridiculing Thompson’s openly lesbian opponent for Senate, Tammy Baldwin, for getting down with her bad self at a Wisconsin Capital Pride Rally in 2010.
Brian Nemoir, the former Wisconsin governor’s political director wrote in his email:
Yesterday, Madison-Liberal Tammy Baldwin cited “heartland values” as the topic for her primetime speech to the DNC tomorrow night.
Clearly, there’s no one better positioned to talk “heartland values” than Tammy.
That was followed by a link to the video below along with the closer, “A primer of her values—note event, and enjoy.”
Nemoir claimed he sent the email in an unofficial capacity though he used his official campaign email address and signed with his official campaign email signature. The
former political director has since made his Twitter profile private, thus depriving everyone of harassing him for harassing Baldwin.
Later, when asked if he regretted sending the video, Nemoir met the question head-on…with a mirror so he could more effectively deflect attention from himself:
“I think there are issues in this race that are extremely significant that will be generated on a day-to-day basis, and I look forward to coverage of those issues…There are no shortages of issues to talk about in this campaign. That’s really what we should be talking about.”
That’s some great advice that hopefully Nemoir will follow in the future. Meanwhile, getting back to the real matter at hand, Tammy Baldwin can move, y’all. Go head, squirrelfriend!
