Reading one of Don Davis's Capitol Chatter columns, we paused at this item:
GOP attacks Peterson
The National Republican Congressional Committee is trying to tie U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
Peterson had nothing to do with expected presidential candidate Clinton setting up a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“Collin Peterson, however, has not called on Clinton to do so and has said nothing at all about this stunning breach of the public trust,” callers are telling Peterson constituents.
A news release says the calls are an attempt to pressure Peterson “to break his silence and demand transparency from Clinton. …”
Democrat Peterson has said he expects to run for re-election next year and Republicans see his western Minnesota district as ripe for a change.
We looked for a photo of Collin Peterson helping Clinton with her emails, but all our google search turned up was a circa 1915 picture of the town of Clinton in Big Stone County.
Photo: We found a picture of Clinton in Peterson's district.
