Sheehan says someone’s impersonating her online

VACAVILLE — She’s “Cindy” from Vacaville and defends running for governor as other people’s Web comments are sometimes graphic attacks about Vacaville resident Cindy Sheehan’s campaign for the statehouse.

But whoever the person writing on the topix.com website – about “campaigning on the world peace platform” and asking for signatures on her petition – the writer is not Cindy Sheehan.

Sheehan and her sister Dede Miller of Los Angeles, campaign coordinator, said in emails that Cindy Sheehan isn’t the person representing herself as “Cindy” from Vacaville.

“I am active on Facebook, Twitter and my own blog,” Sheehan said. “That’s all. Not Topix, not anywhere else.”

“It is somebody impersonating me,” she said.

Topix, which collects and post news stories on its website, included the story about Sheehan running for governor of California. Miller said in an email that her sister did not know about Topix and hadn’t read it or responded to the post.

Sheehan is a member of the Peace and Freedom Party. The top two finishers, regardless of party, in the June primary will be on the ballot in November. Sheehan has said her strategy is to finish second, a success that will force the media to cover her campaign and Gov. Jerry Brown to debate her. She has said California is at or near the top in the nation for homelessness, incarceration, unemployment – and near the bottom in education.

Sheehan is a peace activist, author and podcast host. Her oldest son Casey enlisted in the Army as a 20-year-old in 2000 and volunteered to join a rescue mission while serving as a mechanic attached to the 1st Cavalry Division in Iraq, where he was killed April 4, 2004.

Casey Sheehan was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.
