Robocall Not Meant to Be Misleading, Shuttleworth Camp Says

The campaign of Democratic congressional candidate Bruce Shuttleworth says a recorded “robocall” placed to local voters this week was not intended to be misleading.

Yesterday the Democratic blog Blue Virginia reported that the call claimed Shuttleworth was “doing a conference call… with [Democratic National Committee] Chairwoman [Rep.] Debbie Wasserman Schultz on women’s issues.” In reality, Blue Virginia blogger Lowell Feld wrote, “this call was simply ‘one of several monthly constituency caucus calls the Chair is making this week, with several thousand total participants.'”

In response, the Shuttleworth camp released a statement it sent to to Blue Virginia.

There was no intent to misrepresent the candidate’s status on the call as anything other than a participant.

In light of the ongoing attacks on Women’s rights in this country by the political right wing, Bruce Shuttleworth is encouraged by the DNC Chair’s initiative to energize women in support of the only party which protects their rights — the Democratic Party. That you don’t think it is important to widely share this initiative is a shame.

Bruce Shuttleworth will continue to encourage the citizens of VA-8 to get active and engaged and to fight for social and economic justice for all citizens. In fact, there will be another robocall going out tonight that will encourage Latino voters to participate in the White House Hispanic Community Action Summit this weekend in the District. We think it is important to support the President and get the Latino community engaged.

The campaign also released a transcript of the call (after the jump). Shuttleworth will face incumbent Rep. Jim Moran in the Democratic primary this coming Tuesday, June 12.

Forgive me for interrupting your evening.

I’m Sonia Klein, Deputy Campaign Manager for Bruce Shuttleworth. I have a short message for all the women out there.

It’s been 92 years since women achieved voting equality and yet still have a gender pay gap, lack of access to healthcare and a third of our sisters face daily abuse.

Bruce Shuttleworth is a tireless advocate for Women rights. He will lead not follow in Congress and speak truth to power. Use the power of your vote to elect him as your Candidate for Congress on June 12th.

Bruce will be on the first DNC Women’s Caucus Call tomorrow at 4.30pm with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Press 1 for more information if you would like to join him.

Thank you for listening.
