Trumbull and Fairfield Republicans are attacking Tara Cook-Littman, a Democrat running for 134th State Representative seat, for her appearance in an independent film Bought\u00a0 a movie with the tagline: \u201cThe Truth Behind Vaccines, Big Pharma and Your Food.\u201d The Republican Town Committee leadership, in both towns, say Cook-Littman\u2019s participation in a film they describe as \u201cessentially anti-vaccine propaganda\u201d is alarming. Cook-Littman, however, is firing back, calling the attack a distortion, since she supports vaccinations, and was only interviewed on her GMO-labeling advocacy in Connecticut. Bought, the film, explores the potential link between vaccines and autism, though that isn\u2019t the only topic addressed. It also looks at GMO\u2019s in food and pharmaceutical use in health care. \u201cIn Ms. Cook-Littman\u2019s world, she wants to bring us back to an era where children and adults go unvaccinated and modern medicine and technology are thrown away, which is a frightening image,\u201d said Fairfield Republican Town Committee Chairman James Millington. \u201cWhile vaccinations protect individuals from diseases, they have far-reaching impacts that benefit an entire community, and one just has to look at the gravity of the Ebola outbreak to truly understand what happens when the proper vaccines aren\u2019t readily available,\u201d Trumbull GOP Chair Paul Lavoie added. \u201cWhile Ms. Cook-Littman is entitled to her beliefs and notions about vaccinations, I believe that these are dangerous claims and positions that could have serious implications on our public health and safety.\u201d Cook-Littman responded to the attack Tuesday, saying it is a total distortion of her interview for the film. \u201cI was interviewed as a national leader of the GMO labeling movement \u2014 A movement that I am proud of and has the support of 94% of the American public,\u201d she said. \u201cI support vaccinations for their obvious public health benefits, and have never said otherwise. In a clip of the movie, sent to The Times (see above), Cook-Littman is interviewed only about the GMO labeling bill in Connecticut and grassroots effort to get it passed. "For their record, and I am disgusted that this even needs to be said, all three of my children are vaccinated and are up to date on all of their vaccines,\u201d she said. Cook Littman said this kind of attack by the GOP is exactly what Connecticut families hate about politics. \u201cThe Republicans are willing to lie, distort and smear, without evidence and without shame,\u201d she said. \u201c This is why I am running for office. I am tired of politicians saying and doing anything to get elected.\u201d Cook-Littman said her opponent, Laura Devlin, should call for an apology from members of the GOP party. \u201cI would never stoop to such baseless partisan attacks,\u201d Cook-Littman said.
