Ask the Candidates: What Do You Think About Linda McMahon and Death in Pro Wrestling?

[the text below was emailed and/or faxed to all four candidates]

Dear Connecticut U.S. Senate candidates:

Last week my blog,, published a  seven-part series headlined “Senate Candidate Linda McMahon Has No Good Answer to This Question.”You can read the complete adaptation of the series as a single post at

The essence of the blog series is the following question: “No fewer than 11 performers from the 1991 WrestleMania show alone of Linda McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment would go on to die before age 50. Factors seem to include recreational drug abuse; abuse of anabolic steroids, along with painkillers, depression and anxiety medication, and other prescription drugs; and brain damage caused by dangerous industrial stunts, such as slamming chairs off their heads. Why should the voters of Connecticut not be taking into account this disturbing record of occupational health and safety?”

I seek the responses to this question of Ms. McMahon and Messrs. Simmons, Blumenthal, and Schiff.

Please respond by email to I will publish all responses on my blog at around 1 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, January 13.

Thank you for your attention to this.

Irvin Muchnick
