Minutes Before Ducking Press, Sharron Angle Scoffed At Idea She Dodged Media (AUDIO)
Just minutes before she used a decoy to dodge the press following an event in Reno, Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle apparently told attendees at the event that the perception that she ducks the media was a false narrative pushed by Sen. Harry Reid’s campaign.
The Tea Party candidate took a bit of flak on Monday for the way she exited a private appearance at a Microsoft Licensing office. Staffers for her campaign had not only told reporters that she would answer questions after her event, they apparently fabricated a scene to make it appear as if she was leaving through the front, only as she went out a side entrance.
The optics were awkward (if not frustrating for the on-site press), though Angle’s campaign insisted that she left the way she did because of tight scheduling obligations. In a bit of irony, while speaking to employees at the facility Angle was apparently asked what to make of the notion that “you’re not talking to the media” and she responded by questioning the premise of the question.
