Republican US Senatorial candidate Katherine Harris’ campaign is off to a rocky start as roving bloggers have revealed a huge and potentially significant falsehood she made recently on Sean Hannity’s show.
During the presidential election recount of 2000, a national spotlight was focused on Harris. Harris’ decision against a ballot recount made her a hero to Republicans and villain to Democrats. She also was bashed for something else: her excessive makeup.
On Hannity’s talk radio show, Harris hit back, blaming newspapers for the criticism of her makeup and charging that some – without saying which – altered her photographs. “I’m actually very sensitive about those things, and it’s personally painful,” Harris told Hannity. “But they’re outrageously false, No. 1, and No. 2, you know, whenever they made fun of my makeup, it was because the newspapers colorized my photograph,” Harris said. She didn’t explain what she meant by “colorized.”
Asked Tuesday to point to an altered photograph, Harris and her staff could not. Her response to the question, said spokesman Adam Goodman, was, “I haven’t worn blue eye shadow since the seventh grade when I was in the Girl Scouts.”
Now in a shocking revelation, evidence is beginning to mount that Katherine Harris was less than truthful in her response to Sean Hannity. Several undoctored photos were uncovered by roving blogger Jaysea that show Katherine Harris in the days just before her alleged “colorized” picture hit the press. The images are reproduced below and in fact support the notion that if the photos of Harris were doctored, they were doctored in such a manner as to make her look more presentable and not less, as she claims.
The set of photos above clearly show Harris having “blue eye shadow.” The picture that finally made it to print is reproduced below.
While the photo above, which eventually made it to print is gaudy, unflattering, and over the top, it was clearly doctored in a manner that was favorable to Harris. So much for the “so-called” liberal media bias.
Serious questions, however, remain. Why were the undoctored photos removed and replaced with a more favorable one just hours before the article was released? Why would Harris tell a lie to try to restore her image as an overdone clown? If she is willing to lie in this manner, what does this say about her participation in the 2000 Florida recount? What does this say about her ability to represent Florida as a US Senator? More importantly, what did George Bush know about this and when did he know it? The public is demanding answers to this growing scandal!
