Clinton Spokesman: Drudge Leak Was Bogus

Monday, the Drudge Report bannered an “exclusive” report from “Clinton’s inner circle” citing “closely guarded internal polling” that showed Hillary ahead by 11 points in Pennsylvania. The former first lady, Drudge said, would win the primary “with headline-making margins, the campaign believes.”

I cited the internal poll in today’s story for The American Spectator, but today I got an e-mail from Clinton spokesman Mo Elleithee: “We did not leak any poll to the Drudge Report. In fact, we have said repeatedly today that no such poll exists.”

Hmmmm. If the campaign is denying the leak — denying even the existence of the internal poll — then who was the “senior campaign source” cited by Drudge, and why would they be hyping the results of a non-existent poll? Did Drudge get scammed by a phony source, or did some senior staffer inside the Clinton camp purposefully mislead Drudge?
