Republican Congresswoman Criticizes Bumper Sticker

Louisville, KY – A Republican Congresswoman from Louisville is
criticizing a bumper sticker which associates John Kerry
with Osama Bin Laden. The sticker appeared last week
in the window of a G-O-P office in her district.

Representative Anne Northup, a long-time supporter of
President Bush, says the bumper stickers that read,
"Kerry is Bin Laden's Man, Bush in Mine," are
inappropriate. She says the stickers should not be
distributed by Republican campaigns.

Jack Richardson the Fourth is the Jefferson County
Republican Chairman who had defended the sticker
last week. He said it came from an unknown source.

Northup's opponent in the November election, Circuit
Court Clerk Tony Miller held a news conference over the
weekend, calling on Northup to oppose the sticker.
