Lieberman On McMahon: ‘I’m Not Gonna Hold Her Accountable’ For Pro-Wrestling Content (VIDEO)

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), who is known for his campaigns against indecency in the media, says that Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon’s background as a pro-wrestling executive isn’t a problem, if he were to possibly support her.

“You know the first time I met Linda McMahon was around that very subject. I was concerned and I was working with colleagues in the Senate, and Bill Bennett, about the messages that the World Wrestling was sending out to kids. And we had a good conversation,” Lieberman told reports Monday. “But you know, she’s running for the Senate now, so I’m not gonna hold her accountable for anything she did in the past. I want to hear what her ideas are on foreign policy, domestic policy.“Obviously I’ve known [Democratic candidate, state Attorney General] Dick Blumenthal for a long time, but he’s been focused on being attorney general,” Lieberman continued. “He’s been a great attorney general, but I don’t know where he is on a host of other issues, including foreign policy issues, and the same is true of the various gubernatorial candidates. So I don’t want to make more of this than it is. I got elected as an independent, I continue to be registered as a Democrat, and we’ll see what happens as this year goes on.”
