Clinton campaign sets plant

Staffer submitted question to YouTube debate

“It won’t happen again” just doesn’t mean what it used to. Less than three weeks after the Clinton campaign apologized for a planted question at an Iowa town hall meeting and promised to mend its ways, another Clinton staffer has successfully masqueraded as a civilian, this time at the much higher-profile CNN/YouTube Republican debate.

Brigadier Gen. Keith Kerr submitted a recorded question haranguing Republican candidates who support the military’s controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Kerr is listed as a member of the LGBT Americans for Hillary Steering Committee in a June 27 press release by the Clinton Campaign.

CNN immediately received reports from the Web identifying Kerr as a potential shill and has issued a statement apologizing for the gaffe. According to the statement, screeners missed the connection when they looked at whether Kerr had contributed financially to any of the campaigns (he hadn’t) and checked his military background. Kerr claimed after the debate that he represented no one but himself.

Videos of Kerr’s question spliced with CNN’s Anderson Cooper apologizing for it are readily available on YouTube.
