The Republican Party of Virginia denied on Friday that it was behind a bumper sticker that appeared to take a shot at Hillary Clinton by describing her as “Monica Lewinsky’s X-Boyfriend’s Wife.”

The bumper sticker was discovered by Reuters political correspondent Gabriel Debenedetti, who tweeted a photo of it on Friday morning and said he found it in Fairfax County, Va. In fine print beneath the Lewinsky line were the words “Authorized By Republican Party Of Virginia.”

The Virginia GOP quickly responded with its own tweet denying the bumper sticker was authorized by the party.

A spokesperson also told the Washington Post the sticker was “an amateur effort” and the party’s strategy “does not involve that.”
