Thank you for your support!
A previous endorsement by theWomen's Political Caucus has been removed as per their request. Their reasons are as follows:
"It has come to our attention that you have listed NWPC on your website as a past endorsement. We find this to be rather deceptive and ask that you remove it. As you know, we have a robust endorsement process and take it very seriously. We ask that all candidates, regardless of being previously endorsed, submit new questionnaires for each new position they are running for. We review the questionnaires and make a recommendation as a state board. As Karen mentioned in her email above, the state steering committee elected to make no endorsement of your candidacy for this race. The board felt your responses to questions about issues of importance to the Caucus did not demonstrate a depth of knowledge required for our endorsement."
My response is as follows:
"Posting a previous endorsement is NOT deceptive. It is a matter of history. The suggestion that it is somehow deceptive assumes two things: 1) That the previous endorsement was somehow manipulated by my campaign and that endorsement continues with this campaign, and 2) That the historical accuracy reflected on the endorsement page of my website is suspect. Both notions should be soundly rejected.
It is telling that, out of all past endorsees, your organization is the only one to object.
Be that as it may, the past endorsement has been removed as per your request, but like all revisionist history, it does nothing to change the actual record. I reserve the right to accurately reflect history as it happened, regardless of any objections. The past endorsement was removed out of courtesy, not obligation.
I should also point out that my responses were more than adequate and the assumption that they somehow failed to reflect a depth of knowledge of the issues says more about the moving target that is your endorsement process than it does my qualifications."
Lastly, I would like to call out the Women's Political Caucus for their disingenuous reasoning and complete lack of transparency. They have endorsed my Progressive Left opponent in this campaign. Stating that their request for the removal of their past endorsement is based on my "Lack of depth of knowledge," while not disclosing their agenda-driven endorsement of my opponent is clearly deceptive. Truth Matters!
