Things continue to get worse for Sen. Mitch McConnell. Not only has McConnell spent tens of thousands of dollars on fake supporters, but one of the women featured in an ad touting women who support McConnell isn’t from Kentucky, and has never voted.
Mitch McConnell has spent $75,000 on travel and accommodations for supporters that he flew in from outside of Kentucky to attend his rallies. Beyond buying friends, McConnell has also had to use a non-Kentucky woman in an ad that touted Kentucky women’s support for his reelection campaign.
Not only was the woman in the ad, not a Kentucky resident, but MSNBC reported that the fake McConnell supporter has never voted in an election,
That’s not all: msnbc has learned that the same woman, Dallas A. Knierman, 20, has never voted in any election, and has not requested an absentee ballot for this election, according to a Mercer County official whose confirmation was pointed to msnbc by the Grimes campaign.
“(Knierman) was legally registered on Aug. 2, 2012, but has never voted in our county. She has not applied for an absentee ballot this election and today is the last day to apply,” Jeff Greenburg, Mercer County director of elections, wrote on Tuesday.
It seems that the only way Mitch McConnell can find women who support him is if they never vote. McConnell appears to have the non-voter demographic locked down. Sen. McConnell has been running a campaign that is designed to do nothing but give him a chance to be Majority Leader if Republicans win control of the Senate.
Women aren’t flocking to McConnell’s message that women don’t deserve equal pay for equal work. This is a fact that must stun the supposed party of the free market. Republicans seem shocked that women want to be paid fair market value for their work.
In the days before election day, McConnell’s campaign has fallen flat on its face. Money and incumbency are powerful tools. At the end of the day, no one would be surprised if Sen. McConnell squeaked out another win. However, the Grimes campaign has a major opening. McConnell is fading fast, but Democrats and Alison Lundergan Grimes will need to finish strong if they are going to send the architect of Senate gridlock into retirement.
