An Update From the Harvey Dent Campaign

Superhero Hype! received this letter from the Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) campaign (part of The Dark Knight viral marketing) today:

A lot of things in a campaign look differently from the inside. Take the current media wildfire. Now, there’s not a shred of evidence linking Harvey Dent to any questionable behavior. But the media is creating such a ruckus that from the outside, it’s impossible to see anything else.

Well, I can tell all of you that the Dent campaign is still going strong. We’re still committed to bringing Harvey Dent’s message of change to every corner of this city.

Harvey Dent is not letting the smear campaign impact our campaign. He’s continuing to do what a candidate does — and he’s continuing to lead the charge against the corruption that’s destroying our city.

So rest assured — this campaign is not over. Indeed, it has hardly begun. We WILL take Gotham back.

Allan Cypes

Media Manager, Dent for DA

The campaign’s official website,, has also posted the following announcement:


Harvey Dent realizes that the slanderous and untrue charges trumped up by a mysterious group never seen before in Gotham politics has distracted from the real issues facing Gotham – how to make our city safe again and fight the crime and corruption that is endangering our future. I Believe In Harvey Dent will hold a press conference on Sunday, April 13th at 3:00 pm (EDT) for an important announcement regarding the campaign. The audio of this event will be streamed live on this website.

CLARIFICATION The Gotham Machinists Union has not “withdrawn their endorsement” of Harvey Dent for DA. Their spokesmen clarified that the endorsement has merely been “suspended” for the time being. The Harvey Dent campaign looks forward to the continued support of the Gotham Machinists Union.

DONUT SUPPLIER NEEDED The Harvey Dent campaign lives and breathes off its volunteer crew. Hundreds of Gotham citizens have joined the campaign to change our city. But this week, our donut donor stopped donating donuts to us. And as anyone who has worked on a campaign knows, if the volunteers are the life’s blood of a campaign, then donuts are the life’s blood of the volunteers. If any of you know of a donut donor who would like to get involved in the campaign to take Gotham back, please have them contact the campaign. Thank you.

Be sure to stay tuned to the site on Sunday!
