Sgt. Hurt – He knows nothing!


    ( – promoted by lowkell)

    Last night, a reporter for WSLS in Roanoke asked Robert Hurt about the charges that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which had just endorsed him, was using funds raised from foreign corporations to run ads in the Fifth District against Tom Perriello.

    Here is Hurt’s answer:

    I’m not aware of any illegal contributions that they have accepted, and I know nothing about their ad campaign.  That’s something that’s done completely independent of this campaign.

    Hmmm. Lets see. This story was all over the internet and discussed on television. The allegations were the subject of innumerable newspaper articles, and was the specific subject of a charge leveled at him by his opponent, but Robert Hurt knows nothing about it?

    Where have I heard that before?

    Oh yeah:
