In the last few days of a state Senate race in Connecticut's 4th Senate District, an ominous SuperPAC, sponsored by a shady Fairfield County Billionaire, Thomas Peterffy, is busy dumping tens of thousands of dollars for attack ads benefitting the challenger, Republican Cheri Pelletier.
Peterffy's interest in this race is confusing given his views of the Democratic incumbent:
Hell No! Wait for a candidate to make a stupid mistake then use the power of the internet of course! Check it out!
Predictably, Pelletier started catching heat on various media outlets for the largesse from a member of the Forbes 400. An apparent newcomer to a basic rule of damage control (transparency, natch), Pelletier then began feverishly deleting any criticism, she found of herself and her campaign from the internet and BOOM the following website was born!
Will this be enough to defeat Connecticut's own Citizen's United Bonus Baby backed by Fairfield County Billionaire?
Hardly. Like all races, it's going to be ground game that makes the difference.
And what's in store for Cheri "The Censor" Pelletier? Win or lose, our recommendation for Pelletier includes a subscription to our friends over at Mr. Media Training for help with dealing with the media before she feels the need to "Delete When She Feels the Heat!"
