Warning: The above picture was modified. I added a line to the sign and the chicken wasn't really there
If you cluck on continue reading there is a press release from The Tenenbaum Campaign announcing their new campaign mascot. ( The above picture was taken at the Simi Valley Street Fair)
The Tenenbaum Campaign is having someone dressed as a chicken follow Elton Gallegly around to egg him into debating their candidate. I haven't yet seen the chicken so I had to draw an artist representation from eye witness accounts.
So, will it work? Will the Tenenbaum campaign get the attention they want? Will there be coverage in local newspapers? Will Tim Keaney complain that I modified the picture? Will Elton Gallegly debate Michael Tenenbaum? Does he need to? Will I stop asking questions?
The press release, word for word...
WHAT: Mock debate featuring Republican primary
Congressional candidate Michael
Tenenbaum and an empty podium for Elton Gallegly,
Tenenbaum?s opponent in the
24th District who refuses to debate. Mock debate
to be followed by press
conference by Tenenbaum and ?Chicken Elton? (see
attached), who will follow
Gallegly in public whenever he is in the

WHERE: Lawn in front of Ventura County Government
Center, 800 S Victoria Ave,

refusal to debate following a

limited government, and energy
policy. Gallegly has also failed to appear at any
candidates forums held by
Republican groups throughout the district.
