Crowley: "A Problem For Mitch"

Looks like heads will be rolling at the McConnell campaign as one can imagine Mitch will be none too happy with his campaign staff's lack of vetting and research behind this first ad debacle.

But one has to wonder: How did McConnell not know that Barkley was a convicted sexual harasser? Its only a matter of time until he is pressed on this. Patrick Crowley of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports:
The Huffington Post is reporting that Alben Barkley II, the grandson of Truman VP Alben Barkley and the star of KY U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's first campaign ad, was convicted of sexually harassing a secretary in 1981 while serving as KY Ag Commissioner.
