Well, they haven’t apologized yet, and maybe that’s because they’re doing an internal investigation, but this is really some sad stuff.
Basically, people from the Clinton camp have been circulating a picture of Obama dressed up in some Somalian garb. The implication is, once again, “Psst…he’s a Muslim.”
Obama campaign manager David Plouffe accused the Clinton campaign Monday of “shameful offensive fear-mongering” by circulating a photo as an attempted smear.
Plouffe was reacting to a banner headline on the Drudge Report saying that aides to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) had e-mailed a photo calling attention to the African roots of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).
“The photo, taken in 2006, shows the Democrat front-runner dressed as a Somali Elder, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya,” the Drudge Report said.
The Clinton campaign did not deny the charge, but did not comment further.
And Hillary is saying “shame on you” to Obama?
