Poor Jeff Thompson – running for Louisiana District 8 State Representative. He’s had a bad week.
First, he puts out a flyer that does exactly what he accuses Duke Lowrie of doing. Lying. Now, he can’t even get any love on Facebook from Pro-Life citizens.
As a matter of fact, according to One Girl Revolution blogger, Deanna Marie Candler, the Thompson campaign deleted her comment. All she did was point out that Duke Lowrie was also given a 100% rating by the Louisiana Right to Life Federation. Jeff Thompson also blocked her – even though Deanna is not a voter in District 8.
The point is not whether Duke Lowrie or Jeff Thompson are Pro-Life. Apparently they are, but that doesn’t really matter in a state race. Getting around Roe v Wade is challenging at the federal level, much less the state.
The point is that Jeff Thompson can’t take the heat when the facts are pointed out. Had he handled it differently – like maybe acknowledging the fact and thanking Deanna for pointing it out, then he might have actually gained some credibility.
Instead, he lost credibility again. Twice. In one week.
UPDATE: I’d like to point out that in all fairness, Jeff Thompson probably posted that just slightly before Duke turned in his questionnaire. However, I stand by my point that he shouldn’t have deleted Deanna’s comments.
