State Republicans are hoping to cash in on the video of an Eastern Connecticut State University professor’s rant against the GOP. Elissa Voccola, the party’s executive director, sent an email the potential donors with a link to the video.
The email tells recipients that “while teaching a creative writing class, a professor at Eastern Connecticut State University said that Republicans are “racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people.”
It continues, with links to a website where donations can be made:
As a Republican, as a woman, and as a former student of a Connecticut State University, I was deeply offended by his comments. Like you, I want our state universities to be places that foster and encourage open discussion. But this professor’s comments cross the line and fall far short of the standard to which we should hold our public employees.
This is exactly the type of thing we need to fight back against. Please help our fight by sending a secure online contribution of $10, $20 or $40 today.
The reality is, this is what we’re up against. With recent college graduates in Connecticut unable to find jobs and facing mountains of debt, Democrats are resorting to offensive lies and desperate scare tactics to try to hold on to the youth vote.
But we will make sure that voters know the truth. And you can help by making a contribution to support our cause today.
Executive Director, CT GOP
