On Thursday, Sen, Martin Heinrich, who resides in Silver Spring, Maryland, sent out a fundraising email asking his donors for donations by using the deaths of two deceased New Mexicans who allegedly passed away following them taking Ivermectin. NOTE: the Piñon Post has been unable to independently verify the true cause of these two New Mexicans’ deaths. All references to their deaths do not include a cause, as it has yet been unproven what they died of.
In the fundraising email, Heinrich blasts Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (NM-CD-2) for saying Ivermectin may be a remedy for COVID-19, also referred to as the “China Virus.” Heinrich says Herrell is a “Trump Republican” who is pushing “misinformation,” despite surveys proving that in small doses, Ivermectin may, indeed, be a possible cure for the virus.
“Two New Mexicans have died and many more have been hospitalized due to misuse of this drug, yet Republicans continue to push misinformation to score political points,” writes Heinrich, then mentioning Herrell’s racist Democrat opponent, who Heinrich has endorsed, Gabe Vasquez.
Vasquez is a rabid anti-Trump conspiracist who believes the United States is a racist nation and that Herrell should be “expelled” from Congress for not voting to certify the 2020 election, which was wrought with election fraud in multiple states.
Heinrich then asks his supporters to split a donation between his campaign and that of the Democrat Party of New Mexico, writing, “So, ahead of tonight’s end-of-quarter deadline, will you split a donation of any amount between my campaign and the New Mexico Democratic Party to power our work to elevate leaders who value science and delivering results for New Mexicans?”
During the pandemic, others used COVID-19 to raise money, including Ben Ray Luján and Deb Haaland who utilized the virus to raise funds and to bash President Donald Trump.
