My wife received a robocall this evening and was shocked hearing that the message referred to me and my campaign and subsequently handed me the phone. Unfortunately, I only heard a few seconds of it and did not hear enough to glean what was said. Due to my concern, I went on the internet and found many others received the same call and indicated it was from The Road To Power. I want to make it clear, I am NOT responsible for this call and DID NOT authorize and/or give my permission to Road To Power or anyone else to have these messages go out to the public! Here is a link I found regarding this call:
I just got a robocall in support of the racist Holocaust denier GOP candidate John Fitzgerald of CoCo County, claiming that Jews are taking over the world “and must be stopped.”
It was easily the most racist political ad I’ve ever come across in the Bay Area.

Here’s a story from Jewish News of Northern California of how Road to Power sent out thousands of robocalls for Patrick Little – also without his consent or knowledge.
“Road to Power” is a despicable, hate-filled person / organization who openly degrades ethnic groups in their podcasts and website, and uses derogatory terms for people of color and openly hates all Jews. I do not, never have and never will hate or degrade any ethnic group solely based on their ethnic identity! And even if I had the money to produce and send out thousands of robocalls, why would I have sent them out at 6.30 a.m.? They were designed to deliberately alienate the public against me and associate me with actual hate. I further believe that this robocall was intended to purposely create a negative news story to destroy me and my campaign. Afterall, why would Road To Power not contact me for input, approval or prior notice.
Moreso, I question Road To Power’s true motives and funding along with the news agencies who are falsely characterizing and smearing me as a person of “hate” and as an “anti-Semite” by associating me to the robocall.
