When asked about whether the campaign was buying likes, sources in the Gooch campaign denied they did so and accused a rival campaign of “playing Facebook games.”
“We are not buying Facebook likes,” one source with in the campaign said. “We are working Facebook to confirm where the digital trail leads. Apparently someone went to addmefast.com and made a purchase to Leslie’s page.”
The source attacked an aide who works Gooch’s primary opponent, Paul Chabot, of “playing Facebook games.”
A spokesman for Gooch’s campaign also attacked Chabot, accusing him of both buying the Facebook likes and “attacking women.”
“Everybody knows Paul Chabot is a joke who plays Facebook games and attacks women – he’s total bushleague [sic] and not fit for Congress,” campaign spokesman Jeff Corless wrote in an email to BuzzFeed. “Its [sic] completely sexist for Chabot to condone an attempt to link his female opponent to the prostitution capital of the world. Anything short of a formal press release from his campaign denouncing this behavior is unacceptable and considered an endorsement of it.”
