Slick hilaryFrom 15 Nov 2007 ER

Clinton campaign caught doing dirty politics. Planting questions in the audience, then trying to silence the student from talking to anymore media. Videos here.

Gallo-Chasanoff, whose story was first reported in the campus newspaper, said what happened was simple: She said 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.

“I sort of thought about it, and I said ‘Yeah, can I ask how her energy plan compares to the other candidates’ energy plans?'” Gallo-Chasanoff said Monday night.

According to Gallo-Chasanoff, the staffer said, ” ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea, because I don’t know how familiar she is with their plans.’ ” Video Watch the student speak out about question »

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?”

Not familiar with her own plans for energy?

She said the “head of publicity for the campaign,” a man whose name she could not recall, had no factual disputes with the story. But, she added, a Clinton intern spoke to her to say the campaign requested she not talk about the story to any more media outlets and that if she did she should inform a staffer.

Censorship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Controlling the media. Can’t be trusted.

A second person has a story similar to Gallo-Chasanoff’s. Geoffrey Mitchell of Hamilton, Illinois, on the Iowa border, said the Clinton campaign wanted him to ask a certain question at an Iowa event in April.

How many more times has this happened? Thanks to CNN’s blog for bringing this up.

JIVEWIRE- Excuse me toots, you are avoiding the question again…
