Rita Hart is running for Congress in Iowa’s Second District. The Democrat’s campaign sent out a fundraising email last week hyping an endorsement from Democrat state auditor Rob Sand.
But Hart’s campaign made a mistake. The message read:
“Rob and our supporters all know that no matter what, Rita’s going to accept corruption in Washington.”
Bobby Schilling, a Republican running for the GOP’s nomination in the district, highlighted the email on Twitter on Nov. 24.
“When I read the email, I had to read it twice,” Schilling said. “I thought, ‘Well, yeah, that’s right in line with the Democrat Party of impeachment.'”
A likely typo, but perhaps a Freudian slip, he speculated.
The Iowa GOP picked up on the error.
“When Rita Hart’s team admits she’ll accept corruption if elected ‘no matter what.'”
State Sen. Marianette Miller-Meeks, who is also running for the Republican nomination, highlighted the misstep.
