Voters receive postcard from group that doesn’t exist.
McLean voters and other throughout the 32nd Senate District received a campaign postcard on Friday from an organization called Our Heritage USA calling Republican state senate candidate Patrick Forrest “openly homosexual” and says he is endorsed by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.
A Washington Post story about the postcard says the return address of the mailer is Our Heritage USA in Lynchburg, but the organization and street address do not appear to exist.
The mailer says Forrest is a “liberal Republican” who supports illegal immigration reform, worked for President Obama’s transition team and has voted in Democratic primaries.
“A liberal Republican like Patrick Forrest is a greater threat to the conservative agenda than a Democrat will ever be,’’ it reads.
Forrest, who is openly gay, has accused incumbent Democratic Sen. Janet Howell, of making an issue of his sexual orientation.
