The Connecticut Democratic Party has gone on the attack claiming that the new “Stand Up for WWE Campaign” initiated by Vince McMahon is “unbelievable” after claims by Linda McMahon’s campaign that they had nothing to do with it.
State party spokeswoman Kate Hansen had the following to say.
“Linda McMahon’s $50 million attack machine now has corporate reinforcements, thanks to the ‘Stand up for WWE’ campaign launched by her husband Vince McMahon. No coincidence, it looks a lot like her political campaign… except this one is probably against the law. Linda McMahon’s claim that her husband’s aggressive public relations campaign is independent of her own political campaign is unbelievable, particularly after Vince McMahon specifically cites the Senate race as the reason for the offensive. McMahon’s leadership at the WWE, where she served as CEO until last year, has been a central issue for much of the campaign. She has faced repeated questions about steroid usage and overall treatment of employees.”
The attacks didn’t stop there as Blumenthal campaign manager Mindy Myers also jumped in.
“Linda McMahon is calling in her corporate public relations machine to reinforce her $50 million political attack machine because the people of Connecticut are learning the truth about her profits-before-people record at the WWE. There is nothing that will hide or change that record of forcing her wrestlers to sign death clauses, canceling steroid testing to improve her bottom line, and paying lobbyists to get her out from under health and safety rules.”
