Just 8 days out from the Virginia gubernatorial election, American Bridge spokespeople appeared outside a joint Marco Rubio-Ed Gillespie rally to hand out Enron Ed’s résumé– highlighting Gillespie’s long career as a Washington lobbyist. Lowlights from Gillespie’s sorted past include serving as a student loan industry lobbyist, an asbestos lobbyist, a social security privatization lobbyist, and, of course, an Enron lobbyist.
Enron Ed was joined by protesters from CASA In Action protesting Gillespie’s bigoted, anti-immigrant campaign ads.
Here’s the local Fox News Coverage:
A copy of the résumé and photos of the event are attached.
American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following statement:
“Ed Gillespie has shown his true colors during this campaign — by adopting Donald Trump’s horrifying bigoted attacks in the hopes they will help his flailing campaign. Virginians know the truth: Ed Gillespie will sell them out for a buck or for a political favor faster than you can say ‘Enron Ed.’”
