State House candidate April Sheffield offers up the political quote of the year

in Uncategorized by

The St. Petersburg Times completely disassembles state House candidate April Sheffield in this tale of woe that details Sheffield’s problems with her advisors and vendors, how these troubles left her vulnerable to multiple election violation complaints and the candidate’s seeming inability to ever get control of her nickel-ante campaign.

But the highlight of the article is the react quote from Sheffield as to why she didn’t like the first website that was designed for her campaign.

“I had a contributor call me and say he wasn’t going to give me any money because there were three misspelled words,” she said of the original site, “and there’s an ugly a– picture of me. I tried to get them to take it down, and they refused.”

There’s. An. Ugly. Ass. Picture. Of Me.

Someone call Bartlett’s because Sheffield’s self-effacing soliloquy gets my vote for Political Quote of the Year.
