Former Obama, Hillary Clinton adviser Peggy Moore and wife Hope Wood die in auto collision

 May 18, 2024

One doesn't have to be a conspiracy theorist to raise an eyebrow at the number of Obama and Clinton-related deaths that seem to continue to increase in frequency.

The latest deaths in that particular circle, according to the New York Post, involved former Obama campaign official Peggy Moore and her wife, Hope Wood.

Their cause of death was an automobile collision, according to authorities.

The outlet noted:

Peggy Moore, 60, and Hope Wood, 48, were passengers in a Jeep pickup truck that collided Friday with a Chrysler sedan on Highway 76, near Fallbrook, killing them, NBC Bay Area reported.

The driver of the jeep Hope and Peggy were in was also killed in the accident. The driver of the vehicle with which they collided also died, authorities said.

The two met while campaigning for former President Barack Obama in 2008. In 2019, they founded Hope Action Change, "a consultancy and coaching firm with an emphasis on diversity and equity."

Moore had an extensive background in politics, including an advisery role for Hillary Clinton's California primary campaign. She was also a campaign manager for former Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff, and according to her LinkedIn profile, was a senior adviser in Schaff’s office from 2015 through 2017.

Schaaf released a statement on the passing of her former campaign manager and adviser.

"It took you two hours to walk anywhere with Peggy — maybe more, because she knew everybody," Schaaf said according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

She added, "I’m in such deep grief for myself personally because she’s someone I loved and admired so much. And I’m in grief for democracy. (Moore) is someone who believed everyone should have a voice in government. She never gave up in the beautiful essence of democracy, even when it gave up on her. She infused this nuclear love into everything she did."

Tributes to Moore and Wood poured in across social media, including a statement from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA).

"Together they organized, changed hearts and minds, and helped to create a world where who you love doesn’t limit your freedoms.  Both Peggy and Hope made an impact on our community, on our city, on our state, and on our nation that will be felt for generations to come," Lee wrote.

In the wake of their death, many of those closest to the two had some sense of relief that they both died together and without pain.
