McMahon Camp Suggests Obama's WWE Spot Invalidates Dems' Argument Against Her


McMahon spokesman Ed Patru tells TPMDC:

The President's involvement with WWE underscores what we've been saying all along - WWE is broadly recognized as a company that for years has made tremendous contributions to the community, to the state of Connecticut and to men and women in uniform. It creates hundreds of jobs, it promotes literacy, it makes dreams come true for hundreds of children through Make-A-Wish, and every year it helps boost morale among our troops.

Her also camp sent around a Politico post making that point.

The FEC has not responded to the charge from Connecticut Democrats that the WWE violated campaign finance law by taking down racy clips showing wrestlers engaged in necrophilia.

Late Update: Connecticut Democrats' spokeswoman Colleen Flanagan responds: "It's good for everyone that since Linda McMahon is running for Senate, the WWE's 'special live performance' won't feature necrophilia, rape, and public sex."
