Who is running the Bustos campaign—-Maggie Depoorter?
When Cheri Bustos (D-NARAL) was asked about her infamous 10% pledge by the Chicago Tribune’s Eric Zorn, rather than offer a straight and honest answer, her campaign directed Zorn to an article in the Peoria Journal Star where she made this astounding statement to a reporter:
“When I was in Chicago I said something I shouldn’t have said, but I never said it on the campaign trail. I never made it as a promise to the people of the 17th Congressional District.”
Well, alrighty then.
I really don’t understand why she allows this to continue and it seems she is as baffled by those intertubes thingees as Phil Hare was. Didn’t she get the memo that the internet is forever and no matter where you say or do something, somebody will find it and use it against you?
Earlier it would have been easy to fix this, but that window of opportunity has probably closed now.
The DCCC has an ad that hits Schilling about his “walking away” in Freeport and it too late for him to fix THAT, but Bustos’ 10% problem was a mistake that a month ago could have easily been corrected—but was not.
