FL Political Candidate Exposed for Posting Fake Letter of Support From Obama on His Facebook Page, Full of Spelling Mistakes

Some people sure are full of themselves… and especially politicians. Case in point? Derrick Wallace, a Democrat running for the Orange County Commission, posted a fake letter from Barack Obama on his website that was photoshopped and riddled with spelling errors.

Derrick Wallace, a candidate for the Orange County Commission, in Florida posted the letter that was allegedly from the president on his campaign’s Facebook page.

And at first glance, the note appeared to be official, because it had a White House emblem at the top and Obama’s signature on the bottom.

… But it quickly raised red flags because it contained spelling mistakes such as the word accommodate and the word ‘Democrats was’ spelled in lower case.

And on closer inspection, the White House emblem on it was clearly photoshopped and the signature by Obama had been forged.

Wallace spoke with WFTV-Channel 9 and claimed that he had no idea that the letter on his Facebook page was a fake and had taken it down as soon as he realized it was not genuine.

He said: ‘This came to us and we thought it was authentic. I thought it was sent from the president.’

And when questioned about how he could think it was authentic despite the letter being littered with spelling mistakes he shrugged it off.

He added: ‘I was so happy to get that from the president that I posted it.’

… Wallace said he believed that supporters of his political opponent Siplin could have also sent him the letter to derail his campaign.

However, Siplin denied this and said her campaign had nothing to do with it.

‘I’m just focusing on my campaign,’ she said.

If Wallace isn’t behind the letter, then he sure must think highly of himself to believe that the president would give a damn about such a local race — and also must not think too highly of the president to believe that Obama would spell words like “nod” wrong. If he is behind the letter, then he must be pretty stupid to think that anyone would fall for that.
