On this afternoon's Obama campaign conference call with the media David Axelrod leveled this bomb : "You get the sense they're willing to do anything to overturn the will of the voters and that isn't healthy for the country." Are they challenging Hillary Clinton's integrity?
Questions arose on the conference call about the Florida and Michigan revotes. "They like to designate their states (big state wins) as the important ones, they see only 7 states when they look at the flag we see 50." David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs were on the call for the Obama campaign and they went aggressively after Sen. Clinton on the disclosure issues: requested earmarks, tax returns, and donors to the Clinton Foundation and Presidential Library. The press wanted to discuss Rev. Wright and the Florida and Michigan primaries.
As the conversation went to the issue of the primaries they claimed that if they had run a vigorous campaign in Florida the result would have been different. They claim they have followed the rules but Hillary's campaign wants to change them to overturn the will of the primary voters. They say they will support a reasonable, fair and feasible process to revote but they won't allow the Clintons "to rewrite the rules to their advantage."
As for questions whether they are conceding Pennsylvania to Hillary they deny that assertion and pledged "we'll be running a full campaign." They say Pennsylvania is important but in the next breath downplayed our importance " it's not the only state."
The integrity issue was also leveled regarding her failure to release tax returns and disclose their library and Foundation donors. "What are they trying to hide" was said, which, along with the accusation about changing the rules for their benefit is a serious charge against Hillary's integrity?
I'm sure we'll hear their response to this soon.
