Team Cain’s Mark Block Makes Things Worse for His Boss

So after Herman Cain’s presser yesterday, his campaign manager took to Sean Hannity’s show to unveil his big gotcha — his game-changer — his knife plunged deep inside of the belly of the MSM beast — and announced, scratch that, “confirmed” that Cain accuser Karen Kraushaar has a son, Josh Karushaar, who works at Politico and that’s how the whole story started.

Except . . .

Josh works for Hotline, not for Politico, and he’s not Karen’s son. Josh tweets:

Mark Block must get his facts from Internet comment boards, based on comments to @hannity. Not related to Karen K and don’t work at Politico

First you blame Perry. Then you blame the media. Then you’re done talking about it. Then you hold a press conference and blame Democrats and the media. And now you’re just making stuff up. Time to exit, Mr. Cain.

Florida’s Shame, and Ours

Conspiracy theories are bad for civic life. So are conspiracies.
