Oh my Lord – Shea-Porter blames the CHINESE for losing?

by Skip

From the Campaign Spot:

Outgoing Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter implied the Chinese cost her re-election in November and secretly funneled money to help her Republican opponent Frank Guinta during a post-election interview with ABC News.

Carol Scold-Porter famously made her main campaign point that Frank Guinta had an illegal source of fund.  You know, I think I’d be willing to pay to watch her on the stand and defend this absurdity!  She goes on – but did anyone tell her she is flying over conspiracy land?  Or is she that hard up for an excuse for losing to Frank Guinta in her hometown of Rochester, NH?

Heh – "The Chinese – they’re EVERYWHERE, I tell you"!

“They’re in the halls of Congress everywhere,” Shea-Porter said in the interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl. “[A]nd it means, for example, that you sit on a committee and you say something about concern about Chinese influence or something, you don’t even know if in the next election, somehow or another, they manage to send some money to some group that now doesn’t even have to say where they got it.”

There is no evidence that the Chinese funneled money into the First Congressional District race. Such a contribution would be illegal.

Jim  Geraghty add:

Shea Porter is, naturally, thinking of running again in 2012. You’ve been warned, Beijing.

Yup, that’ll be fun!
