Gibbs: ‘Nobody’ In WH Aware Of Baucus’ Girlfriend Issue

Congressional Quarterly/Newscom

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked to respond to the news Sen. Max Baucus recommended his girlfriend for a U.S. attorney post.

“Senator Baucus did not give us any information about those three names,” Gibbs said.

“Nobody here was involved in it,” Gibbs said, adding, “I don’t mean anybody besides those who know Senator Baucus, I mean nobody.”

The RNC called for an investigation, but there has been relatively little reaction as Baucus talks about health care most of today on the Senate floor.
