Clinton Adviser Resigns After Obama Drug Use Comment

This coming from Breitbart:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday accepted the resignation of a top adviser who a day earlier suggested voters should ask rival Barack Obama if he were a drug dealer.

Bill Shaheen, a national co-chairman for the Clinton campaign, raised the issue during a Wednesday interview with The Washington Post, posted on

“I made a mistake and in light of what happened, I have made the personal decision that I will step down as the co-chair of the Hillary for President campaign,” Shaheen said in a statement released by the campaign. “This election is too important and we must all get back to electing the best qualified candidate who has the record of making change happen in this country. That candidate is Hillary Clinton.”

This could have been seen as inevitable. When you say something like this, heads gotta roll. A smart move by the Clinton campaign in my opinion, takes this off the headlines.

Obama declined to comment on the resignation.
