Last week Stacey Dash went out early to cast her vote for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, even though she received death threats after initially tweeting her support for him. Now she’s following up with a photo of herself and Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan, posing in front of an American flag.
“Fighting the good fight. Godspeed. @reppaulryan @MittRomney #Romney/Ryan20” she wrote on Twitter Monday evening, along with the above photo. And that’s not all, she also included a blog post to further explains her reasons for supporting the pair.
“I believe that Governor Mitt Romney believes in the American people. That we can be self evident, that we are capable of achieving the American dream. That there is enough for everyone. I believe that because he has proven his ability to lead,and his ability to be excellent as a CEO and as the Governor of Massachusetts. Governor Romney is the best choice to be our next President. He has achieved the American dream, he knows how to lead us the American people to realize our potential. By creating 12 million jobs, giving equal work for equal pay,by giving incentives and cutting loopholes, by keeping us safe and strong as a country of Super Power.”
Fans and celebrities alike have been a bit, er, alarmed by Dash’s fierce Republican endorsement.
In an interview with The Grio Vivica A. Fox shared her opinion on the matter. “I don’t know why she [Stacey Dash] had to do a photo shoot in a Baywatch red swimsuit with the boobs and the whole flag behind her,” Fox said. “And she doesn’t have a job or something to promote right now? I just didn’t get it. She’s entitled to her own opinion but it was just surprising that first of all she was a Republican, and that she did it the way that she did. Most politicians when you support them, you try to support them with class, you don’t need to do a swimsuit shoot.”
