SHARE NBC News reporting: Jimmy Carter's grandson helped leak explosive Romney video

Saying his goal was to get Democrats elected, the grandson of former president Jimmy Carter claims responsibility for helping leak an explosive Mitt Romney video that has gone viral since Monday.

NBC just posted this:

“The grandson of former president Jimmy Carter revealed he helped expose the secret Romney fundraiser video that sparked a firestorm on the campaign trail. He said his motivation “is to help get Democrats elected” and to get back at the GOP presidential nominee for his criticism of his grandfather’s presidency.

“It gets under my skin– mostly the weakness on the foreign policy stuff,” James Carter IV told NBC News. “I just think it’s ridiculous. I don’t like criticism of my family.”

He told NBC News that he e-mailed his grandfather Mother Jones’ story about the tape and was congratulated Tuesday morning. “James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa,” Carter said the former president responded.”

In the NBC interview, James Carter told of how he “persuaded the source that shot the video to release it to the press.”
