Former White House senior adviser David Plouffe took to Twitter to question Rep. Darrell Issa’s ethics after the California Republican trashed press secretary Jay Carney.
“Strong words from Mr Grand Theft Auto and suspected arsonist/insurance swindler. And loose ethically today,” Plouffe tweeted on Sunday, linking to a video of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman on CNN’s “State of the Union” calling Carney a “paid liar” who was “making things up” about the IRS scandal.
The charge against Issa comes from the 1970s, and was dropped in 1980. For perspective, at that time I was wearing my hair Luke Skywalker style and was still a decade away from my first martini. This, from the crowd who tried to claim Benghazi was “a long time ago.”
It’s Panic Time on Pennsylvania Avenue.
UPDATE: Jim Geraghty wins this round.
