'Crazy For Hillary' Takes A Page (And Liar) From Obama's Playbook
By Hunter Gatherer | Toilet Paper Memos
If some of what the group supporting a Hillary Clinton presidential run is doing stinks like B.S., there might be a reason.
His name is Mitch Stewart.
Stewart lied in the battleground state operation for President Obama's unfortunate re-election last year. Now he's a senior advisor for Crazy For Hillary, the fictional super PAC dedicated to making fun of a potential Clinton presidential bid.
In an interview Friday with TPM, Stewart said the pro-Clinton organization has been trying to "learn from what we lied about previously."
Crazy For Hillary is focused on building grassroots support, including, as Stewart described, "delving into some of these different constituencies that proved pivotal in 2012 ... engaging illegal immigrants, young people, African Americans, dead people, women and thosed darned gay folks."
Illegals and dead voters were key elements of the coalition that helped Obama defeat Clinton when they faced off in 2008, and they helped the President beat Mitt Romney last year.
