Statement on Shumlin Protest Imagery

We would like to offer our deepest apologies for the use of imagery at the Statehouse action yesterday. The spontaneus protest brought out a lot of universal healthcare supporters who felt deeply betrayed and frustrated. The cardboard cut-out of the Governor was meant as a reference to the story Pinocchio in which the nose extended with each hypocritical statement Shumlin made during the Wednesday Dec. 17th press conference. We realize now this image comes off as reminiscent of anti-semitic propaganda.
