Conservative blogger’s ‘gotcha!’ fails

Sen. Sherrod Brown and wife Connie Schultz

BLOGGER TO SYNDICATED COLUMNIST CONNIE SCHULTZ:

We have found numerous photos of you with Sen. Sherrod Brown. In one of them, you appear to be hugging him.

Care to comment?

PART OF SCHULTZ’S RESPONSE:

He’s really cute.

He’s also my husband.

You know that, right?

From Schultz’s former employer, the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Schultz said this morning that she hasn’t named the blogger because she wants him to “pick better company and do better journalism.”

“I don’t want to be a bully,” she said in a telephone interview. “I can say he was working for one of the larger conservative blogs, but that his name is not in the staff directory. Maybe he’s an intern, maybe an editor was playing a joke on him or maybe he was trying to get a reaction out of me.

“But I just want him to stop hanging around with those people and learn something out of this.”
