Senate Campaign Flacks' Online Hijinks

Apparently the pressure of the approaching midterm elections has gotten to a few flacks in competitive Senate races. Per Hotline's Blogometer:
  • MN Senate candidate Amy Klobuchar's spokeswoman Tara McGuinness (who previously flacked on the Hill for MA Rep. Ed Markey) was fired yesterday for "viewing a possibly illegally obtained ad from Rep. Mark Kennedy's (R-06) campaign." McGuinness was apparently sent the video by a sympathetic blogger who found a link on the website of Kennedy's media consultant. The story from Kevin Aylward at Wizbang.

  • Meanwhile, the Blue Jersey blog has caught state Sen. Tom Kean's (R) spokeswoman, Jill Hazelbaker, posting "several troll comments" on their website's comment boards. BJ matched up Hazelbaker's IP address to BJ commenters "usedtobeblue" and "cleanupnj." BJ concludes: "Jill - your campaign has been exposed. You're nothing but a bunch of liars, and sadly, you can't even do that well."
