RENAMED to Hillary's Questiongate!!!!!!!

[UPDATE]-- HCdl has just named this "QUESTIONGATE"....HAHAHAHAHA

Just this morning we saw that Hillary Clinton's campaign admitted, after being busted, to setting up staged questions so she didn't have to answer any real questions.... that link above has the latest bad news for Hillary and why her camp is in full panic mode right now.

How wormy of her and her camp.

NOW we see another person making the same accusation... I wonder how many are going to step up and call her on this little game.

For the second time in as many days, Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has had to deal with accusations of planting questions during public appearances, FOX News has learned.

In a telephone interview Saturday, Geoffrey Mitchell, 32, said he was approached by Clinton campaign worker Chris Hayler to ask a question about how she was standing up to President Bush on the question on funding the Iraq war and a troop withdrawal timeline.

The encounter happened before an event hosted by Iowa State Sen. Gene Frais on a farm outside Fort Madison, Iowa.

Clinton's Iowa campaign confirmed to Fox News that one of its staff discussed questions with Mitchell before her April 2 event, but denied attempting to plant a pro-Clinton question.

Mo Elliethee, spokesman for Clinton's campaign in Iowa, told Fox that Hayler and Mitchell "had a previous relationship" and that a discussion about Clinton arose out of a normal conversation between two people who knew each other well.

"They had a previous relationship and were talking before the event and the topic of the senator's position on Iraq came up and Geoffrey said he had some questions," Elliethee said. "Chris suggested Geoffrey ask a question."

Mitchell, however, said that he and Hayler did not know each other personally before the event.

"I had no previous relationship with him," said Mitchell. "I knew his name and by name only as some who worked for Sen. Evan Bayh. But we didn't know each other and I had never met him before this event."

Mitchell told Fox the Clinton campaign wanted to contrast Clinton to Sen. Barack Obama who had recently said the president would probably prevail in the Iraq funding battle with Congress.

Mithell said he refused to ask the question.

"I told Chris I had other issues I wanted to raise with Sen. Clinton," Mitchell said.

Asked what those were, Mitchell said, "I wanted to ask her why she voted for the Iraq war and why she didn't consider that a mistake."

Mitchell told FOX News, for that Hayler, the Clinton campaign worker, was unhappy and moved on to others.

"I know he tried to have others ask that question," Mitchell said.

When you cannot answer questions without hedging, beating around the bush and avoiding them...just do the net best thing... STAGE THEM.

Hillaryville, the gift that just keeps providing that nasty ole "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" all the ammunition it will need to tear her to shreds should she become the Democratic nominee.

Thanks Hill Honey!!!
