Clinton Sunday conference call shut down by pranksters

SHARE Clinton Sunday conference call shut down by pranksters

WASHINGTON–A Clinton campaign Sunday conference call about the Obama and Clinton health care coverage plans was terminated after two pranksters asked whacky questions, the second one with a sexual allusion.

About 35 people were on the call, organized to discuss the competing health care coverage claims of the Obama and Clinton campaigns, the subject of negative ads in the closing days of the Pennsylvania campaign. Dr. Irwin Redlener, National Chair of Doctors for Hillary; Professor of Public Health and Pediatrics, Columbia University President of Childrens Health Fund, said Obama’s plan was a “politically driven proposal” because it does not try from the start to cover everyone.

The plan was to give preference to reporters calling in from Pennsylvania, facing a Tuesday primary.

Howard Wolfson shut down the call after the second question. Not going as planned, he said.
