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.

I don’t think they were racist; I think they were abjectly stupid. Like many ... Read More
