An endorsement of Rep. John Lewis?

In a recent AJC puff piece where we are told about all the good that Rep. John Lewis does for us, there was this bit:

Lewis has made himself available — and visible — to voters. He’s visited union halls, churches and college campuses. He’s attended neighborhood festivals and Eagle Scout ceremonies. Last Monday Lewis rode around Atlanta in a UPS truck, dressed in a brown uniform and delivering packages to customers.

I’ll admit I don’t follow the nuisances of political campaigning as some do here, but I find it odd that some UPS executive thought it a good idea to stick Lewis in uniform and have him deliver packages. Further, does such action constitute any sort of tacit endorsement and contribution to his campaign as they drove him around the district to meet with voters?

    Lewis is a dude. He’s simply everywhere. He goes to more parties than Caren West, for chrissake. Talks to more people than Jeff Clark tries to pick-up chicks clearly half his age. Thing about Lewis that makes him so re-electable though is that at least he’s spared his constituency the urge to write it all down and pass it off as compelling copy the next day.

    I typically disagree sharply with Lewis’ politics, but having lived in his district for several years, I must say he does take care of his constituents. I saw it firsthand, as he helped my dad promptly and effectively on matters of his civilian federal retirement and military retirement.

    Wow, what a compelling reason to vote for him.
