Wasserman-Schultz: 'I Have No Idea' Of Political Affiliation Of People Behind Ad Blaming Romney For Woman's Death
Serious question: is there anything—anything!—Debbie Wasserman-Schultz won't say to promote Barack Obama?
On Fox News Sunday, interviewed by guest host John Roberts, the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee somehow managed to keep a straight face as she brazenly claimed: "I have no idea of the political affiliation of folks who are associated" with Priorities USA, the Super PAC that ran the ad essentially blaming Mitt Romney for a woman's cancer death. But as is undoubtedly well known to Wasserman-Schultz, Priorities USA is run by Bill Burton—Obama's former Deputy Press Secretary. View the video after the jump.
What words would you use to describe Wasserman-Schultz's assertion?
JOHN ROBERTS: You probably saw we were talking with John McCain a couple of minutes ago. We aired a little bit of that Priorities USA ad. Should the Democrats be releasing an ad that accuses a presidential candidate of being responsible--through inference--of being responsible for a woman's death?
DEBBIE WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: Well, first of all, that's a Priorities USA, it's not a Democratic ad --
ROBERTS: I understand--
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: --a Priorities USA Super PAC ad, which we had nothing to do with it.
ROBERTS: Do you deny that they're Democrats?
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: I have no idea of the political affiliation of folks who are associated with that Super PAC.
ROBERTS: Bill Burton, who used to work in the White House, who worked for the Obama campaign in 2008?
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: That is a Super PAC ad that is not affiliated with the Obama campaign or the party.
