The Connecticut Democrat Party is facing intense heat for seemingly using a reference to the children’s book/TV character Curious George, a monkey, to attack Connecticut congressional candidate George Logan, a black Republican.
In a Twitter post published Wednesday, the party sought to question whether Logan lives in the district that he’s eyeing to represent.
According to CT Insider, the post specifically featured a photo of Logan standing in front of a “Don’t Tread On Me Flag.”
That part of the post was fine. What wasn’t fine, according to a growing chorus of critics, was the text of the tweet.
“This is George. George doesn’t live in the 5th District but wants to represent it in Congress. George’s uncle lives in the 5th District. George says he’s moved into his uncle’s house. But has he? Just run where you live, George. Deceiving voters is no way to start a campaign,” the tweet read. MORE
