Down in the polls and disgraced as a proud outsourcer, Republican David Perdue decided the best course of action was to sign a young woman’s hip/torso at a rally on Thursday.
On the heels of more bad polls for the “proud jobs outsourcer” David Perdue, the Republican running for a Georgia Senate seat who is currently trailing the Democrat, Michelle Nunn, the thing to do is sign a woman’s torso. His campaign disagreed, though, as they tried to block cameras from taping it.
David Perdue joked as he signed a woman’s torso, “No pictures on this.” Meanwhile, his campaign workers tried to keep it from being taped, holding signs up to obstruct the view as the young woman looked over her shoulder like a kid sneaking a cigarette behind the gym at school.
According to Evan McMorris-Santoro of Buzzfeed reported , the tape was made by a Democratic tracker at a Perdue rally in Jonesboro, Georgia on Thursday. It was uploaded to Youtube by American Bridge 21st Century.
This is Perdue’s attempt to shake the Romney off of himself, after announcing he was proud to have spent his life outsourcing jobs, oh, and also, has as much as a million dollars invested in an exclusive fund managed by a private Swiss bank. This fund invests mostly in companies that operate outside of the USA! USA! USA! Totally just another Georgian, though.
A new CNN poll released Friday shows Nunn in the lead again, and even “more importantly, the CNN poll shows that Nunn would win a runoff between the two candidates.”
If Perdue didn’t want to be caught on tape signing a young woman’s hip like a Hollywood celeb, here’s a novel (navel?) clue: He shouldn’t have done it at a rally where media is bound to be present. He might want to ask Romney how easy it is to hide things caught on tape.
