Scozzafava Holds Press Conference At Hoffman Office — Surrounded By Hoffman Signs

As we noted this morning, Republican NY-23 candidate Dede Scozzafava held a press conference today at Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman’s campaign office — and as it turns out, this photo opportunity had a horrible unintended consequence.

Scozzafava simply ended up being surrounded by a crowd of Hoffman supporters, holding up their signs in back of her as she tried to speak to the cameras.

As Dave Weigel says: “Little-known fact: There are lots of campaign workers, and signs, in such offices, ready to be deployed.”
