Another must-see video out of Nevada -- this time Sharron Angle literally flees a pregnant reporter for Reno's NBC affiliate who was trying to ask her a question about GOP congressman Dean Heller's criticism of her view that unemployment benefits have "spoiled our citizenry" and give people and incentive to not find work:
From the report:
U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle invited local media to attend a press event in Reno Wednesday morning, but when members of the media tried to ask the candidate questions she didn't answer.
At the event this morning Angle signed a pledge to repeal the estate tax-or "death tax"- if she's elected, made a few brief statements and walked away with several members of the local media in tow.
News 4 Reporter Karen Griffin was one of the reporters trying to ask Angle questions and she actually ignored the questions, looked straight ahead and kept walking.
News 4 arrived at this morning's event early to make sure we could talk with Angle. News 4 listened to the press conference and when it ended, Angle simply walked away.
Worth noting: at the end of the segment, Griffin (the reporter from whom Angle fleed) said that she'd been receiving e-mails from Angle supporters saying that if she had wanted to ask questions, she should have showed up on time and asked questions during the scheduled Q&A. The problem with that, as Griffin points out, is that she arrived early for the event and there never was a Q&A scheduled.
So how did Angle supporters get it into their mind that Griffin had showed up late and skipped the (non-existent) Q&A? The obvious answer would seem to be that Angle's campaign is responsible for the misinformation. So not only is Sharron Angle fleeing from reporters, she seems to be lying about it. Crazy, indeed.
