In August, Heather Heyer was killed in a car attack in the now-infamous Charlottesville, VA protests.
And on Sunday, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton exploited her death in an attempt to sell more copies of her book.
In an email that was sent out by onwardtogether.org, Clinton discusses the death of Heyer in the opening line of the letter. It concludes with Clinton talking about her upcoming book tour and includes a link for recipients to get tickets:
“I have been thinking lately about bravery – the bravery of citizens like Heather Heyer who lost her life fighting the organized forces of hate and divisiveness, of volunteers who are rescuing strangers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and of young DACA recipients who are fighting for their future in the only country they know and love. … This fall, I’ll be embarking on a book tour of my own – which means that I’ll be able to see many of you while I’m out on the road. Click here to get more information about where and how you can get tickets, and hopefully I’ll see you soon. Onward! Hillary.”
But here’s where things get hairy.
Heyer was no fan of Clinton at all — in fact, she was a massive supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders during his 2016 presidential run, refusing to even vote for Clinton in the general election.
“She voted for Sanders in Virginia’s primary. When Bernie wasn’t the Democratic nominee, Heather didn’t even vote in the general election,” said Heyer’s mother Susan Bro, according to The Cut.
