PSC Campaign Resorts to Stan Wise Voodoo Doll
Cherry’s Team Debuts “Stick it to Stan” Campaign
Atlanta GA: October 2 2006 – Libertarian Public Service Commission (PSC) candidate Kevin Cherry’s campaign staff is resorting to unconventional tactics in his bid for the PSC seat. The staff has debut the “Stan Wise Voodoo Doll”!
A Voodoo Doll? That’s right a Voodoo doll!
James Bell, Cherry’s campaign director said his communications director, Brad Forschner conceived the idea in an attempt to generate interest in the Cherry for PSC campaign.
“I was amazed and frustrated at how hard it is to get media attention”, said Forschner. “After 20 news releases on the issues it was time to lighten up and do something that would catch the eyes of voters and the media.”
Kevin Cherry said the PSC race has been virtually ignored by the media, yet it’s one of the most important races on the ticket. “The PSC effect everyone’s pocketbook,” said Cherry
Forschner said the “Stick it to Stan” voodoo doll is being offered to campaign donors who donated $100 or more. Kevin Cherry said he was not surprised his staff has added a bit of humor to the campaign.
“My staff has been working hard running my website, writing press releases, and producing commercials”, said Cherry. “The Stan Wise Voodoo Doll was their way of venting their frustration during the campaign. They’re just poking fun at Stan Wise (with the Voo Doo Doll).”
The political voodoo dolls go back to the Nixon days when protestors used the doll to show their discontent for the status quo. Cherry said it seems everyone is discontented with Stan Wise and the doll seemed appropriate.
