If we weren’t sure last week that the Obama campaign is embarrassed by President Obama’s gaffe-tastic Univision interview, we can be sure now. In a desperate effort to knock some of the momentum Mitt Romney’s excellent Univision appearance garnered for the GOP nominee, a source tells me that the Obama campaign is currently shopping around a Univision-inspired hit-piece on Romney to various left-wing outlets, including “Mother Jones.”
Here’s the torrid tale:
Fausto and Remedios Diaz-Oliver are longtime players in GOP politics as fundraisers and boosters. Sometime in the late nineties, they both ran into problems with the I.R.S. and in a plea agreement, she pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors as an accessory after the fact and he pleaded guilty to a felony. Neither served any jail time.
