George LeMieux's French-Sounding Name is Hottest Issue in Republican Senate Primary
Here's the bumper sticker Hasner's campaign is putting out. (Which you are likely to see on no cars, because, really, who wants to deface their car with GOP senate primary attack stickers?)
Hasner's been on the attack by trying to highlight the connection. Of course, this bumper sticker would be plainly in bad taste if, say, LeMieux's name was of a different ethnicity ("It's Hebrew for Crist" or "It's Spanish for Crist" certainly wouldn't fly).
"Adam Hasner, who is Jewish, and knows a thing or two (or should) about ethnic sensibilities, has decided it's okay to make an issue of George LeMieux's French ancestry," writes Ron Kampeas over at a Jewish news site.
To further hammer the French-attack angle home, Hasner sent out an email blast declaring, "George LeMieux wants Floridians to say 'c'est la vie' and believe his reinvention as a conservative is legitimate?"
C'est la vie? Oy vey.
