The Democrats are getting an early start to the Halloween weekend.
Days leading up to the Nov. 2 Virginia gubernatorial election, Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin is enjoying a nearly eight-point lead among pollsters as the state looks to turn from the radical leadership of guys like Ralph Northam or Terry McAuliffe — Youngkin’s opponent. Dems are slowly losing the Virginia gubernatorial race, but quickly losing their minds.
Democrats are so white-faced with concern that they decided to crash a Youngkin-led event on Friday, dressed up as supposed white supremacists. Early reports have linked these political actors to Terry McAuliffe’s campaign, though they arrived on the scene claiming to be in favor of Youngkin, chanting “We’re all in for Glenn.”
The group of five Dems dressed up in white and brought Tiki torches to the Win With Glenn bus tour event in Charlottesville Friday morning — attempting to a recreate the Unite the Right rally from 2017.
Rather than sticking the white supremacy image on their political opponent in Youngkin, a majority of the Dems’ real identities were revealed online, leading to candidate McAuliffe and the Dems getting lambasted for the cheap trick.
The first Dem identified was Camden Layton. Layton’s Twitter account went private shortly after he was called out. His bio includes the Virginia Democrats profile tag and a “vote for Dems on Nov 2” line in his profile name. Very sneaky.
Second was Colleen Wachenfeld, whose Twitter profile also included the @VADemocrats tag. Her bio tagged President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and stuck a claim that she helped flip Arizona blue. Worth putting on LinkedIn.
Also making an appearance in the gathering of white supremacists was an African American male — photographed partaking in a scene that undoubtedly became a highlight in this man’s life. His name has yet to be released, but Twitter users were quick to dub this actor the new “Clayton Bigsby.”
Jen Goodman and Christina Freundlich, members of Terry McAuliffe’s campaign, reposted the image of the faux-testors and accused their Republican opponent of inciting white supremacy.
Those tweets have not be flagged for misinformation and remain live on Twitter, contrary to the staffers’ unearthed identities.
