Hudakgate Comes to an End
The strange spectacle of a Massachusetts congressional candidate trying to grab onto Scott Brown’s coattails is over: Bill Hudak, who got in hot water for signs and remarks about President Obama’s citizenship, has retracted his claim of an “endorsement” from Brown. From his press release:
“Our campaign misinterpreted his verbal agreement of support from Senator-elect Brown as an approval to proceed with the endorsement announcement. And, we did not follow proper procedure for getting the press release approved by the Senator-elect’s team,” said Hudak.
“I look forward to taking Scott up on his pledge to help me, but will let him dictate when that support should be communicated,” continued Hudak.
“What is most distressing is the extent to which left-wing bloggers continue to use smear tactics, including trying to portray me as a ‘birther’ and falsely denigrate and accuse Senator-elect Brown of being of that belief”, Hudak said. “Let me make clear that while I don’t agree with everything he does, President Obama is our President and I believe he was born in the United States, and accusations that he was not are unsupported nonsense and non-issues to the business of our country,” Hudak remarked.
