A number of blogs are buzzing about a scandal that’s going to be in the news this coming Monday, January 7, 2008, just before the New Hampshire primary. There’s a lot of speculation, but the narrative hasn’t leaked out yet. It sounds like it’s going to be a bombshell against either Mitt Romney or John McCain.
Race 4 2008 was pretty general about this yesterday. Right Wing News coverage was more speculative but interesting today, leading with the rather bold headline “Former Huckabee Staffer — Scandal Is Going To Destroy Romney.”
I don’t know what the facts are, other than that we’ll find out on Monday. Speculate and include relevant links in the comment thread.
I would guess that it would be more likely to be something about Mitt Romney, only because the research behind this alleged scandal took place while McCain was languishing in the polls. Romney has been expected to be the man to beat all along. But that’s just a guess. It could just be someone trying to sell a book.
Some speculation is that this is about the “anti-Mormon” push polling and that perhaps that the Romney campaign itself was behind it, an allegation that Team Romney vigorously denied. If you recall, the push poll was apparently critical of Romney, but friendly to McCain. Was it a dirty trick to make McCain look bad? Who knows?
We shall find out what this is all about on Monday, if not before. Speculations? Predictions? You know what to do.
