Minor sidelight, but entertaining. The Phil Scott campaign has a small but vociferous band of supporters on Twitter. Among the most frequent tweeters are John Quinn, Thomas Joseph, Hayden Dublois, whoever ghostwrites the @PhilScott4VT account, and someone named Julie Kennedy.
Kennedy presents herself as a dedicated ticket-splitter, a presumed liberal who’s voting for a lot of Democrats — but not Sue Minter. According to her Twitter bio, she lives in Brattleboro and just opened her Twitter account in August of this year.
Remember the “Brattleboro” part, because Julie just screwed up. She posted a photo of her ballot, showing votes for Phil Scott and Randy Brock (more on that below).
But the ballot was not from Brattleboro, it was from Washington County District 1, which includes Northfield and Berlin. More than a hundred miles from Brattleboro.
“Julie” later deleted that fateful Tweet, but not before Brandon Batham, field director for the Vermont Democratic Party, preserved it for posterity.

Either “Julie” just committed vote fraud, she doesn’t live in Brattleboro, or the Twitter account is a fake.
My money’s on the latter. “Julie” appears designed to encourage liberals to vote for Phil Scott, since “she” elsewhere endorses various Democrats.
“Julie” had second thoughts about Bernie after he went and endorsed
the harlot of Babylon Minter:
And she lost faith in David Zuckerman after his 2013 comment about the National Guard was discovered by the GOP oppo-research team.
And then there was the time that dear sweet “Julie” called me a dirty name:
Oh “Julie,” do you kiss your mother with that mouth?
I have no idea who’s behind the “Julie Kennedy” curtain, but I will point out one bit of coincidence: the aforementioned John Quinn is a resident of Washington-1. (See Update #2 below.)
Of course, a lot of other people live in Washington-1, so leave us not cast undue aspersions.
How long till the “Julie Kennedy” Twitter account goes dark? Pretty soon, I’d think.
Update #1: Another pro-Phil Scott Twitter account, @vtbuzz, has been deleted.
Update #2: John Quinn denies he had anything to do with “Julie Kennedy.” Apologies for any unfair aspersions.
Update #3: The “Julie Kennedy” Twitter account has been deleted.
