More Proof Of Hillary Planting Questions

From, of all places, The Nation:


As Hillary Clinton aims to regain momentum in tonight’s presidential debate, new videos have surfaced on YouTube with young voters asking her questions that are similar to the fake question posed by a Grinnell college student last week.

There is no direct indication that the new footage, apparently taken from an October 16 event at a high school in Salem, New Hampshire, demonstrates any concerted effort by the Clinton Campaign to plant questions. (The campaign’s media and Internet staff did not immediately respond to requests from The Nation for comment.)…

One clip features a young woman wearing a Hillary sticker, who notes she is at her second Clinton event of the day before asking her question. “As an Iranian American female, I would like to know your take on the stance you would have in your administration with dealing with Iran, and, what you think we could do to help, as you said, change America’s reputation in the world, and how we can better improve relations and prevent a war or military confrontation,” she said.

Well, these two latest questions do seem to fit the pattern described by the first “planted” questioner to surface in her interview with CNN:

Gallo-Chasanoff, whose story was first reported in the campus newspaper, said what happened was really pretty simple: She says a senior Clinton staffer asked if she’d like to ask the senator a question after an energy speech the Democratic presidential hopeful gave in Newton, Iowa, on November 6…

He then opened a binder to a page that, according to Gallo-Chasanoff, had about eight questions on it.

“The top one was planned specifically for a college student,” she added. ” It said ‘college student’ in brackets and then the question.”

Topping that sheet of paper was the following: “As a young person, I’m worried about the long-term effects of global warming. How does your plan combat climate change?

Shocking, is it not?
