Woman Finds Stack Of Anti-Hillary 'Lewinsky' Bumper Stickers At GOP Office
TPM ^ | JULY 11, 2014 | Nicole Laford

Posted on 07/14/2014 2:09:54 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A Virginia woman told TPM on Friday that she recently discovered a stack of anti-Hillary Clinton bumper stickers at a local GOP office, despite denials from the state party that it had anything to do with the stickers.

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.

It was there in the office, Donoghue said, where she found the Lewinsky bumper stickers.

"The man wanted to repay me for driving him, so I just took one of the stickers as a trophy," she said. "There was a whole stack of them there."

The existence of the bumper stickers was first reported Friday on Twitter by Reuters political correspondent Gabriel Debenedetti, who posted a photo of one of them.

Donoghue said she wanted to speak out about her discovery after the state party denied being involved.

"They are just cheap and stupid, and if you are going to be cheap and stupid at least be honest about it," Donoghue told TPM. "The denial was dishonest."

A woman who answered the phone Friday afternoon at Fairfax County Republican Party headquarters told TPM she hadn't been in the office on Sunday and didn't know who was. She said she didn't know whether the bumper stickers had been there that day, but she said none were there now. She declined to give her name.

“We have a lot of bumper stickers,” the woman said. “We don’t have any of those bumper stickers though.”

TPM left a voicemail and sent an email to a spokesperson for the Republican Party of Virginia on Friday afternoon, seeking comment. The messages were not immediately returned.

Great Bumper Stickers

Liberal woman’s story of how she found it is bogus. I would never drive a stranger to a political party office if they were in a diabetic episode

Sounds like liberals hate the facts

The sticker as described sounds stupid, petty, and irrelevant...so all signs point to this coming from the highest levels of the GOP.

I guess since the Dems feel they got away with the "Lois Lerner IRS hard-drive crash" story, they think they can get away with anything now.

Despite being known as the Stupid Party, I find it hard to believe the GOP would actually have these bumper stickers made and include their identification on it. Sounds like they were printed & planted by the 'Rat opposition.

The bumper stickers read “Monica Lewinsky’s X-Boyfriend’s Wife for President.”

Technically it is 100% True....

It probably is a false-flag operation, and they’re doing it to preemptively spike a legitimate attack on the Hildabeast.

Because ...

It is true. And it is a reminder of the sleazefest that was the Clinton Administration.

As a diabetic I take issue with the narrative that a man was out campaigning and not prepared with a glucose meter or insulin on his person.
The whole story smells like three day old fish.

That's actually pretty good, and probably just what Hillary doesn't want to hear

This story rees so full of BS I don’t know where to start.

My points:
1. First of all the GOP would have better produced commercial bumper stickers not the type you’d see designed on a ApC and printed out on an ink jet printer like the one depicted in the photo.
2. I know a lot of diabetics; thy carry their insulin with them wherever they go. They wouldn’t leave it back at GOP headquarters.
3. Most volunteers won’t have their own keys to the “GOP headquarters”. They would have to be let in by a supervisor.
4. The circumstances under which she met him - “walking a dog and just happened upon this poor soul”. I’m sure the woman was a “compassionate” Democrat

Sorry I don’t buy it. This is another one of the manufactured gay waiters being discriminated against by not leaving a tip stories the left oves to use to demonize their opponents with...

Despite what turns up, the Democrats know that it's going to be nearly impossible to paint Mrs. Bill Clinton as a sympathetic character. And to position her with the still-popular B-J Clinton is a contrast in personalities that even the Democrat-Socialists look away dispiritedly.

No ... I don't think the Democrat-Socialist Party is going to invest a whole lot into her campaign for president, even if it turns out she's the best they have. The brilliant strategists they are, they'll invest their time, money and effort into maintaining power in Congress.

Of course, it's a long way to November 2018 and, with the current GOPE leadership, anything -- and I do mean anything -- can happen to put the Democrat-Socialist Party right back into the game.
