A photograph of Elizabeth Warren pretending to ride a motorcycle was posted to Twitter by the feminist group Emily’s List Sunday afternoon and quickly went viral. William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection compared the photo to the infamous image of former Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis riding in an Army tank during his ill-fated 1988 presidential campaign.
Warren’s campaign has also been haunted in recent weeks by a voter-registration controversy involving her daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi.
The far-left think tank Demos, which Tyagi founded and chairs, successfully sued to force the state of Massachusetts to send voter registration forms to 500,000 beneficiaries of state financial support. Brown said that the ploy was “clearly designed” to benefit Warren’s campaign, and that Warren should reimburse Massachusetts taxpayers for the $276,000 cost of the program.
The program outraged and energized Massachusetts conservatives.
“I think people are really disgusted by it,” Paul Moore, campaign manager for Massachusetts Sixth District Republican congressional candidate Richard Tisei, told the Free Beacon. “There’s a lot of resentment about that.”
“The fix is in, folks,” wrote Rob Eno, publisher of the insider Massachusetts political blog Red Mass Group. “… Attorney General Martha Coakley needs to investigate what happened and bring charges for those that have conspired to rig an election.”
