Maggie Hassan Touts Fringe Blog As Source For Attack
Maggie Hassan, the sitting governor of New Hampshire and candidate for U.S. Senate, is raising eyebrows among reporters for a press release and a tweet touting an article attacking her opponent. Why? The article Hassan cites is from Wonkette.com, an ultra-liberal blog that describes itself as “A vile socialist anti-Christian propaganda blog.”
Hassan took to Twitter to call the Wonkette piece a “MUST READ” and mainstream media reporters took note:
Maggie Hassan's campaign just sent an "ICYMI" email to its press list featuring a Wonkette story about Kelly Ayotte. #Ban2016

Citing wildly biased “sources” isn’t new for Hassan’s campaign. A press release sent out on Tuesday linked to ThinkProgress.org – affiliated with the far-left Center for American Progress – as a source for another attack.
With the bar set this low, one has to wonder if Hassan’s campaign will start blasting out Democratic Underground comments next?
