It must be that Barry Hinckley really doesn’t want Rhode Islanders to see the video we posted of him telling out-of-state donors that although they can’t vote for him, he will vote for them if they help fund in Senate campaign.
It’s a damaging look at his candidacy, especially since he has already been labelled a carpetbagger, so it was no surprise the video was pulled from Youtube shortly after we posted it yesterday morning.
Thankfully for Rhode Islanders who should know that Barry Hinckley has no intention of representing them if elected, RI Future has managed to locate another copy of the video. So in case you missed it yesterday, here it is again today:
Need more proof that this is a central theme for Hinckley’s campaign? Here he is quoted in a press release for a Florida fundraiser saying the same thing:
Hinckley urged attendees to contribute to his campaign because, “Although you can’t vote for me, I can vote for you.”
And just in case you’re still not satisfied, here is another video of Barry Hinckley this time telling a crowd in California that he will vote for these non-Rhode Islanders if they support his campaign financially (at 10:50 mark):
So try as Hinckley might have, here’s all the proof Rhode Island needs to understand that Barry Hinckley doesn’t plan on representing them; his stated intention is to represent those who donate to his campaign regardless of where they live.
