GARRET GRAVES KISSING MARY LANDRIEU (THE UNCUT VERSION)
Above is a screenshot from the pre-edited version of the Mary Landrieu qualifying video. If you have been paying attention, a political action committee produced and released this video Wednesday. After the blowback from the segment featuring Republican 6th District Congressional candidate Garret Graves kissing incumbent Democrat U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu the video was edited to remove that segment.
This blog asked the still unanswered questions, why was it clipped and who did it? Since that time it came to our attention that political consultants from the Garret Graves campaign also work for the PAC in question. These same consultants have come under fire recently in a contract dispute lawsuit levelled by a former client. During those proceedings 19th JDC Judge Tim Kelley said, "Morally and ethically the court has a severe problem with this type of thing" referring to these consultants activities.
Whoever did it and for whatever reason should have remembered Rule #1 of practicing politics on the internet: If you don't want your opponents to use it against you don't post it. Communication over the internet is permanent, it never goes away.
