Yesterday, I saw this graphic in both Suzanne Downing’s Must Read Alaska blog and on The Dave Stieren Show Facebook page.
It’s a fake invitation for a fake event.
Sure, it looks real. And it wouldn’t necessarily be out of the realm of possibility. I gave it a double-take because it’s supposedly being held at the exact same time as my Berkowitz fundraiser which is cosponsored by Mark Begich.
Somebody decided to create a completely fake event, and both Downing and Stieren used it to attack Begich and Berkowitz. This isn’t the first time Downing has published false things to attack Democrats or folks in her party she doesn’t like; she routinely has attributed things to me that are false.
I don’t know Downing. But most Republicans don’t spread falsehoods as effortlessly as she does. She is part of the group the thinks “it’s how the game is played.”
