Mormon pollster Gary Lawrence: I’m the idiot who wrote “Six Consequences”
Joanna Brooks has a worthy piece on Mormon Prop 8 involvement currently up on the front page of Religion Dispatches.
This next bit is just me filling in a (minor) gap in the reporting:
“A primary source of Mormon messaging during the Proposition 8 campaign was the anonymously-authored‘Six Consequences if Prop 8 Fails’ document, which went viral across Mormon social networks after its introduction by email in mid-August and was utilized as a training document and handout in the Mormon-coordinated ground campaign”.
Anonymous? Ahem. Here’s an 8-second clip of LDS/GOP pollster Gary Lawrence claiming authorship of the infamous half-baked half-dozen:
“In fact, the idiot who wrote the Meridian magazine article is me.
And the idiot who wrote the ‘Six Consequences’ is me.”
Of course, this gem remains my all-time favorite Gary Lawrence clip: We Want Negative Buzz!
You want it, you got it, Gary. Mission accomplished.
