Reports that Someone from the Sharron Angle Campaign Used “Abusive Language” are False
If you read ThinkProgress today, you would “think” that an Aide to Nevada Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle called a reporter an idiot.
Angle refused to comment and her spokesperson eventually blocked Baca from asking any more questions, calling him “‘an idiot’ and another term that can’t be repeated” in the process.
The problem; ThinkProgress got the story wrong.
In a statement released earlier today, the Angle Campaign said;
“A news account has reported that someone “from the Angle campaign” described as “a campaign spokesperson” for the Sharron Angle U.S. senatorial campaign had used abusive language with a reporter yesterday evening during an event in Las Vegas. This is not correct. The official in-state spokesman was not at the event. The person who spoke to the reporter is unknown and is not an employee of the Angle campaign and was in no way authorized to speak on behalf of the Angle campaign.”
Holding candidates responsible for what drunken supporters say in a bar is going a little overboard, don’t you think?
But then again, Red Dog Report already told you that Harry Reid and his minions would lie, cheat, steal, do whatever it takes, to remain in power.
