Report: Romney Staffer Responsible For Akin Stipulations Demoted

The Romney campaign staffer responsible for requiring a Colorado reporter to agree not to ask any questions about Todd Akin or abortion during a Romney interview is no longer working with the press, reports Politico.

“Ciara Matthews, the Romney campaign’s Colorado communications director, has been asked not to speak to the media,” the site reports. Matthews is “a former spokesperson to both Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and one-time Senate candidate Sharron Angle” and “will remain on staff with the campaign but will no longer deal directly with reporters.”
