Kathleen McFarland has accused her opponent, incumbent New York Senator Hillary Clinton, of having photographs take of her house with helicopters and having people spy on her home through the window. The former Pentagon Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs is having a rough start to her campaign, with recent allegations of plagiarism
surfacing just a day go.
Her spokesperson defends the performance as a poor attempt at humor, because we all know making fun of your opponent is a critical skill that qualifies you to be a grown up, and presumably a Senator.
Other people present at the event who were not paid employees of McFarland painted a different picture.
"She wasn't joking, she was very, very serious, and she also claimed that Clinton's people were taking pictures across the street from her house in Manhattan, taking pictures from an apartment across the street from her bedroom," said an unattributed whiteness. "The whole room sort of went silent when she said it," another said, according to the New York Post.
All of this should be taken with a grain of salt, as McFarland's spokesperson is going to spin the situation in the best light possible, regardless of what really happened. And the New York Post isn't exactly a trustworthy media outlet.Article at the NY Post.
