"This Photo May Change The Election

Source Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

A hot story today is how a reporter for The Weekly Standard was shoved to the ground by a Martha Coakley campaign worker when the reporter tried to ask Coakley why she was attending a fundraiser with lobbyists.

But another part of the story, as pointed out at HotAir, was that Coakley witnessed the assault and did nothing. Here is a photo showing Coakley looking at the reporter on the ground with the assailant standing over him, from HotAir [via The Weekly Standard]:

Coakley's non-reaction to the assault, even though she knew that the reporter only was trying to ask a question, is the big story here.

There is something to see here, so do not move along.

Update: David Hogberg at Investors Business Daily asks:

First, will she dismiss Meehan from her campaign?

Second, will she call the D.C. police or the district attorney and ask them to investigate and agree to testify against Meehan? Seems like the least she could do.

Update No. 2: h/t to a commenter for this, the attacker is an Obama appointee to the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

She's the B**** that let Gerald Amirault, spend 15 yrs in prison for crimes he didn't commit and as if that wasn't bad enough, got the Governor to keep him in prison for another 3 yrs.

Why would ANYONE vote for her in the first place?

Thanks Truecritic! Not familiar with that but read this today, the details of the crime are too revolting to post here. Looks like she dropped the ball big time on this one. Part 2 which I haven't read is linked on the right of that page.
