Spam/Phony/VIle facebook page attacking Mary Burke

Postby Maggie » Tue Nov 12, 2013 9:52 am

Mary Burke for Governor of Wisconsin

No matter if you support Kathleen Vinehout, Mary Burke, or Scott Walker, this fraudulent facebook page should disgust you.

hmmm I smell Segway Jeremy Ryan....

It is kind of funny in an Onion way. I especially like the big old fashioned bike photo, and she looks rather good in the pink plaid shirt.

Except it's not satire. If people like Segway Jeremy want to be complete assholes, let them. The last thing we need is premature mudslinging in a democratic primary. It's just plain fucking sleazy.

Wow, that page is really fucking lame, and pretty offensive as well.

I'm curious why people immediately suspect segwayboy of making this tripe?

What makes ya'll think Jeremy is behind this? Odds are it was done by the same out-of-state attack group that put this up.

Technically speaking the Republican Party of Wisconsin is not an out of state attack group.

Republican Party of Wisconsin paid for it, but Push Digital is who did it. Looking at their section about social media (under "services") and it is a fair guess that Facebook page might be something they'd also provide.

Push Digital is not the "Republican Party of Wisconsin." It is a private right wing company located in Columbia, South Carolina.

Didn't mean to give the impression that they were one&the same.

Push Digital put up the webpage. WI-GOP paid for their services.

If the Republican party paid for it, why does it matter which contractor they used? The attack group is usually the one who came up with idea and the funding, not the people they hire.

If the GOP paid for this as well then this is the GOP's page, not Push Digital's.

Columbia SC my ass.
I just spent some time passing through SC, I do not believe that they started this.

But this contractor specializes in this sort of stuff nationwide.

I ain't trying to make it sound like the WI-GOP get excused on this one...they own it....but I don't think for a minute they are the brains behind the ideas/layout. These local Republicans would be totally hapless if it wasn't for out-of-state money/advice.
