Next time somebody yells LIBERAL MEDIA IS IN THE TANK FOR OBAMA let them take a look at this little bombshell that should have cost Joni Ernst the election.
Gretchen Hamel, a campaign spokeswoman for Joni Ernst's U.S. Senate campaign, was arrested on Oct. 29 for operating while intoxicated and resigned the morning after the incident.
West Des Moines police found Hamel passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle after crossing lanes and driving her car over a curb on the 6100 block of Beachtree Drive at about 10:30 p.m., according to a police report.
An Ernst campaign aide on Thursday said that Hamel resigned the morning after the incident.
"This is a personnel matter which we will not discuss in the press. We wish Gretchen nothing but the best and appreciate her efforts," said Ernst campaign manager Jon Kohan in a statement.
Hamel did not return multiple attempts to reach her Thursday.
So an Ernst campaign spokesperson gets a DWI on October 29th. You know, before the election. We're only hearing about it now, after the election. Which means our "liberal media" sat on this story that could have damaged a Republican somehow for a week.
Funny how that works out.
