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.

Sounds racist, sexist and/or homophobic! Holder needs to be called in.

So what’s this woman’s point. The bumper stickers are true.

I might send the GOP a five buck donation for that bumper sticker.

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

If they didn’t make them, they should have.

Republicans have no idea how fight the Democrats, whereas the Democrats live and love to fight the GOP

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

Any reminder of Clinton affairs helps Hillary.

Next she’ll “discover” a burning cross in her front yard. And that she has been sexually harassed.

Smells like a set-up. I would like to get one of the stickers, though...

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.
