Flier offering $100 gift cards to hold Wu signs; offer was fake

One of the bogus fliers.

At 11 a.m. today, Michelle Wu was scheduled to hold a climate-focused campaign appearance at Moakley Park with, among others, US Senator Ed Markey.

The story quotes her, a HiPahk supporter of Michelle Wu, an accent coach and some guy who says he only started dropping his Rs harder when his mother told him to pronounce them if he wanted to get ahead in life.
