If you didn't think this Wake County school board campaign could get any weirder, now we've got the "Stinky Tea Campaign Tour."
Progress NC Action announced tonight that "Stinky Tea," a person wearing a skunk outfit, will travel around District 3 on Thursday to "warn against the toxic Tea Party take-over of Wake County Schools."
The "tour" will end with Stinky Tea showing up at the Northern Wake Republican Club meeting, where school board candidate Heather Losurdo is expected to be an attendee at a meet the candidates event.
The liberal advocacy group has been going hard after Losurdo, setting up their queen of extreme website and having the crown-wearing skunk mascot stand outside the building where the school board met Tuesday.
Here's the group's media advisory:
