Facebook War: Does Russ Carnahan Know How to Untag Attack Posts from Lacy Clay? [UPDATE]

Categories: Politics

From Lacy Clay's Facebook page.
Difference #1: Lacy Clay goes out hard on Bastille Day.
Update: It appears Carnahan took his Facebook profile down a couple hours after this post went up. Carnahannies, here's a hint: top right corner of the post, click on the little pencil icon, and hit "remove tag". Don't throw your precious Facebook baby out with the bath water!

Sucks when your wall gets bombed by haters. It really sucks when you're running for office, and the guy doing the bombing is your opponent, a relentless Lacy Clay in an increasingly bitter primary battle.

Last week, Congressman Clay, who currently represents District 1, kicked off "30 Days of Differences" a gloriously shit-slinging social media campaign that highlights the differences between himself and his opponent Rep. Russ Carnahan, another popular Democrat who was tossed into the same district after brutal redistricting this year.

Screenshots galore after the jump...

Clay has been posting statuses to Facebook every day, attacking Carnahan's record and even challenging his basic counting skills.

The kicker here is that Carnahan does not untag. His own wall is littered with these attack posts (though you have to be friends with him to see posts he's tagged in). Both politicians have been enthusiastic users of Facebook and Twitter, but come on Russ? Get some of the kids in your campaign office to untag that stuff. Clay's next big difference? "Our social media interns are better than your's."

Cosmo's "10 Signs You Should Unfriend Someone on Facebook" might now have an answer for the running scared politician, but we at DailyRFT think it's about time you got this frenemy off your wall, Russ.

Don't know where all this hate for Russ is coming from.  I understand that not everyone will agree with him on every issue but at the end of the day no one who's met and spoken with him would say that he's not a nice guy. Clay on the other hand, can be a real ass hole--unless that is, he's campaigning or needs something from you. In addition: **Out of the 171 votes held in congress this year he hasn't even cast a vote 22% of the time** http://www.thepoliticalguide.com/Profiles/House/Missouri/Wm._Lacy_Clay/VotingStatistics/ That kind of personally pisses me off since Representative are elected to REPRESENT their constituencies and you can't really do that if you don't vote. **He voted against the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009** **He's Politically Shady** -He voted against the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007 which sought to strengthen ethics requirements for congressmen and lobbyists. -Has used his position to further his and his family's own material self interests: http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Articles/2012/03/22/Lawmakers-Reap-Rewards-from-Influence-Peddling.aspx#page1 http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/columns/deb-peterson/article_2b5a76b8-b95f-11e0-a5ca-001a4bcf6878.html

Carnahan, The Village Idiot,  couldn't untag shit! I am overjoyed and very optimistic Clay will squish him like a cock roach. Clay and his old man have been my congressmen for forty years. I vote every election but have never voted for or against either Clay since no Republican has a chance of beating him, why bother. But this time I will hold my nose and vote for Clay! Wiping Carnahan off the political map will be the very best thing that has happened to St. Louis since 1860 when Eberhard Anheuser sold his first keg of beer!
