Clinton Campaign Plants Questions In Iowa (UPDATED)
More news that makes Hillary look like a faker.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa â€” Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign admitted Friday that it planted a global warming question in Newton, Iowa, Tuesday during a town hall meeting to discuss clean energy.
Clinton campaign spokesman Mo Elliethee admitted that the campaign had planted the question and said it would not happen again.
“On this occasion a member of our staff did discuss a possible question about Senator Clinton’s energy plan at a forum,â€ Elliethee said.
â€œHowever, Senator Clinton did not know which questioners she was calling on during the event. This is not standard policy and will not be repeated again.â€
Frankly, I don’t believe that Hill didn’t know to call on them. Why would you plant anybody in the audience if Hill didn’t know? Sounds like BS to me.
One day after Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign confirmed that a staffer planted a question for the presidential candidate at a recent campaign stop, another person has come forward with a similar story.
Geoff Mitchell, a minister who recently moved to Hamilton, Ill., from Iowa, told ABC News that he was approached this spring by Clinton’s Iowa political director Chris Haylor to ask Clinton a question about war funding.
Again, saying that Hill didn’t know about this or at least knew a certain question could be asked (wink, wink), is insulting to voters’ intelligence.
