Hillary Clinton is using the death of Heather Heyer — who was killed in the car attack in Charlottesville — to help promote her book tour.
In an email first reported by Mediaite that was sent out by onwardtogether.org, Clinton references the death of Heyer in the opening line of the letter.
The letter supposedly concludes by Clinton talking about her upcoming book tour and includes a link for recipients to get tickets, Mediaite reported:
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.
Mediate further noted that Heyer was a Bernie Sanders supporter and refused to vote for Clinton in the general election – choosing to abstain from voting altogether.
“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.
