Where are the men in the white coats?
From the Palatka Daily News-
EAST PALATKA -- U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris said she is getting support in strange places in her fall bid for the U.S. Senate.A Democrat endorse Harris? I find that hard to believe and the Orlando Sentinel did some checking.
Harris, the Republican who represents Florida’s 13th District, spoke at a Lincoln Day dinner held by the Putnam County Republican Executive Committee on Saturday night, saying House Democrats have told her they want her to beat incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in their race for the U.S. Senate this November.
“I’ve had Democrats in the House of Representatives come to me and say ‘You know, we’d really like to take the majority in the U.S. Senate’ — these are Florida Democrats in the U.S. Congress — ‘but you’ll do so much more for us if you’re there. We hope you win,’” Harris told a crowd gathered at the Putnam County Shrine Club.
Harris said one Florida representative suggested a slogan for her campaign against Nelson.
“I had one of the most liberal house members from Florida say to me, ‘I’ve got a great slogan for you for Nelson.’ I said ‘What is it?’ He said, ’All about nothing for far too long.’
But all seven House Democrats from Florida told the Orlando Sentinel they never expressed any support for Harris. Responses from two -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Alcee Hastings -- were typical.Oh I believe Dornan. A liberal Democrat support Harris? She can't get this conservative Democrat to vote for her.
"That would be a big 'No,' " Wasserman Schultz said.
"Under no circumstances, in any way, shape or form am I supporting Katherine Harris, nor do I know anybody in the delegation who is."
"I can assure you, Congressman Hastings is 110 percent committed to the re-election of Bill Nelson," Hastings' spokesman said.
"He wishes Katherine Harris well in her life as a private citizen next year."
Asked about the Democrats' universal denials, Harris' spokesman Chris Ingram said his boss is sticking by her account. He said she won't identify the mystery Democrats because they offered their support in confidence.
Ingram said Harris was "taking the high road" by protecting their identity. He did not respond to an e-mail asking for the names of others who might corroborate Harris' account.
The episode creates for voters a rare moment of political clarity: Either some Florida Democrats are hiding something and actually told Harris they want her to win, or Harris is making up the whole thing.
Former Harris campaign manager Jim Dornan is convinced Harris invented the story
Harris is in definite need of psychiatric help if she thinks there is any chance of her winning in November.
