Virginia gubernatorial race takes on fake signs and a classic book

EVERYTHING FROM COVID,
TO THE ECONOMY,
AND EVEN EDUCATION IS BEING USED AS POLITICAL AMMUNITION.
Laura Murphy: <<”When my son showed me his reading assignment, my heart sunk.”>>
Annie Andersen: She’s talking about Toni Morrison’s Beloved.
The book was required reading for her son in 2013. and it’s now the focus of an attack ad from republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin.
That mom took her concerns about the reading to the state’s general assembly.
But then-governor Terry Mcauliffee who is running for his old job, vetoed a bill that would have given parents the option to opt-out of certain reading assignments.
As Youngkin uses that decision against McAuliffe, the former-governor is responding with ads of his own…
Terry McAuliffe ad:<<”glenn younkin’s taking my words out of context i’ve always valued the concerns of parents.”>>
Annie Andersen: THE MUDSLINGING GOES BEYOND THE AIRWAVES – TO THE FRONT LAWNS OF VOTERS.
This yard sign has been getting traction on social media.
Fits right into the narrative, right?
But take a closer look… It doesn’t say who paid for it.
Democrats have come out saying this is a fake yard sign… adding that based on Virginia campaign law, it’s also a campaign finance violation.
A Republican running for state delegate responded that these signs are all over the dc suburbs
WITH JUST A FEW DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY – IT’S ANYONE’S GUESS WHAT WE’LL SEE NEXT.
