There must be something in the water in New Bern.
Anyway, somebody in the Allen Thomas (D) campaign for Congress thought it would be a great idea this past week to organize a “flash mob” — a spontaneous-looking gathering — of supporters inside the New Bern Harris-Teeter to wave campaign signs and chant pro-Thomas slogans. Here’s an eyewitness account of how that went:
There’s also a video floating around on Facebook of Thomas campaigning in a mosque — actually kneeling on a prayer rug and praising Allah. (The video has since been taken off of Facebook, but is still floating around out there. If you’ve got it, send it our way. PLEASE.)
Sources tell me Thomas was asked publicly about WHY he felt he had to kneel on a prayer rug and participate in the prayers to Allah during the Muslim service. Thomas reportedly responded: “There were no chairs, man.”
