Take 2: Jon Russell: With "friends" like these, who needs enemies?

Earlier, I pointed out where someone who was "friends" with Russell on Facebook keeps sending me "stuff."

In this case, the "stuff" I've been sent includes a little tidbit that confirms an allegation I made against Russell on June 12: Man: That Russell and his canned letters... a real yuk fest.

Seems he was so desperate to find people who'd lie about him that he actually sent out an email recruiting them.

Now it sucks bad enough if you have to beg people to write letters for you, but something like this?

Dear Supporters,
Time is running short for this primary election. Will you take 5 minutes to write a paragraph or two in support of campaign? If so, I need you write a letter to the editor and send it via email. These letters really matter. Please let me know when you have sent your letter. If you are not a strong writer or don't have the time, we can send you a prewritten letter crafted by one of our volunteers, if you agree with its content you can sign off on it and send it in. Be sure to add your name, phone & address at the bottom on the letter. BCC your letter to the media outlets listed below.

Thanks Jon

Various links.
Only a "Russell" could provide "pre-written" letters.

This particular blurb came from someone named "Chuck."

"Chuck" also sent me a screen capture of Russell's personal Facebook page, where, if you're a "friend," you get to see this:

Yup. Even after have been caught lying about his fake, non-existent college degree, Russell still insists on lying about his education; here claiming to have a 4 year degree in Political Science from Thomas Edison, class of '09.


Well, politically, it's all going to be over soon. After he loses the primary, he'll soon be facing a recall election from what I hear, and then, of course, the investigations from the Public Disclosure Commission and the State Health people over that fake doctor nonsense his wife's had to deal with...

I get that it sucks to be him. But after he becomes a footnote in this election and in politics generally, it's going to suck a whole lot more.

  1. Now I know why the reflector feels "Hoodwinked" into publishing canned letters.
