Carly Fiorina accused of 'ambushing' children for anti-abortion rally

Party of schoolchildren visiting Iowa botanical garden become part of backdrop for Republican presidential candidate’s speech on abortion

The problem, one parent said, was that the children’s parents had not given Fiorina permission to have their children sit with her – in front of a huge banner bearing the image of an unborn foetus – while she talked about harvesting organs from aborted babies.

“The kids went there to see the plants,” said Chris Beck, the father of four-year-old Chatham, one of the children Fiorina appeared with. “She ambushed my son’s field trip.”

Truly sickening, disturbing and disgusting.

1. "Send me out of Iowa with the wind at my back," she said

 


Lol.

And everyone else was probably blaming the dog.

3. Fiorina spokeswoman: "these (four year old) children chose to come to Carly's event"

This was in an email, so we have no way of knowing if she said this with a straight face or not.

In answer to a detailed series of questions from the Guardian, a Fiorina spokeswoman said in an emailed statement: “We were happy that these children chose to come to Carly’s event with their adult supervisor.”

In addition to the event itself there is a picture clearly showing the kid's faces. You just cannot show kid's faces like that without a written release from the parents - which they obviously did not get.

Seems to me that "adult supervisor" has some 'splainin to do also.
