PETA is helping Karen Floyd

I received an e-mail from the Karen Floyd campaign last week announcing a dove shoot/fund raiser in Florence on Monday. I’m always impressed to see a candidate host an event different from the traditional stump BBQ. I still love the BBQ & politics combination, however, the candidate for education superintendent has thought out of the box again.

Now, from the good folks at we learn that PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) has criticized Karen Floyd’s campaign for this horrific event.

I just don’t get it. In SC we learn to tote a shotgun before we walk. Does PETA actually think the open criticism of Karen Floyd will hurt her campaign? Go ahead, Karen, tally up the Bubba vote!
