This pamphlet was left on the windshield of a car parked on Reservoir Oval West in Norwood yesterday morning. Here's an English translation of the speech bubbles:
...Lie TV Introduces the Story of Gustavito the Liar...
Once upon a time there was a group of evil individuals
Who wanted nothing more than to rise to power
In order to make decisions against our people
But for many years there has been a strong leader with our needs in mind and he has kept the evil from rising to power.
Knowing they couldn't defeat this true leadership
The evil individuals handpicked a little boy named Gustavito to act as their puppet
Realizing that he couldn’t compete against true leadership…
Gustavito sold his Latino soul, dignity and pride to the same evil group who are forcing Boricuas and Dominicans out of our neighborhoods.
And we won’t fall for such a liar… Instead, we will turn out strong for our current leader, Pedro Espada Jr.
The people have come together in support of the Senate Majority Leader, Pedro Espada Jr.
Espada has always stood up for you. He deserves your respect and support.
On Tuesday, September 14 vote for Senator Pedro Espada Jr. Not a Step Back!
The "evil individuals" pictured on the front page are Bill Samuels, founder of the New Roosevelt Initiative, State Senator Liz Krueger, and Dan Cantor, executive director of the Working Families Party.
