Fake La Crosse County Republican Party letter sent to area high school seniors
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A fake letter, claiming to be from the La Crosse County Republican Party, was sent to many area high school seniors recently.
According to a post on the organization’s Facebook page, the letter in no way represents the views of the La Crosse County Republican Party. “It seems clear that it was intended to damage our party and its reputation, Chairman Bill Feehan said.
“The content of that letter is offensive and repugnant to the Executive Committee of the La Crosse County Republican Party,” Feehan continued. “In particular, there were several statements about various groups of people. The Republican Party is open to people of every race, creed, and sexual orientation. If you were to meet the leaders of our organization, you would quickly see that this is a true statement.”
