Herman Cain’s Campaign Manager’s Epic Fail
It’s rank amateur hour in the Herman Cain campaign, as Cigarette Smoking Man Mark Block wrongly insists they’ve ‘confirmed’ that the son of one of Cain’s accusers works for Politico.
Herman Cain campaign manager Mark Block, in an appearance with Sean Hannity on Fox News just now, insisted that a relative of the second woman to publicly accuse the candidate of sexual harassment in the 1990s works at POLITICO.
“Her son works at POLITICO,” Block said of Karen Kraushaar, whose name POLITICO printed earlier today after other media outlets made her identity public.
“I’ve been hearing that all day - you’ve confirmed that now?” Hannity asked.
“We’ve confirmed that he does indeed work at POLITICO and that’s his mother, yes,” said Block.
Block appeared to be referring to former POLITICO reporter Josh Kraushaar, who left for another outlet, National Journal, in 2010.
Josh Kraushaar tweeted earlier in the day, apparently after getting questions, that he’s in fact not related to Karen Kraushaar, and simply has the same last name.
This is pure desperation at work, folks. Block probably even knows that it’s false, but in the right wing universe that doesn’t matter — the claim is all that’s needed to turn this into a wingnut article of faith, impervious to facts.
