McCain Surrogate Falsely Suggests McCain Does Not Want To Overturn Roe


In a new ad for John McCain, Debra Bartoshevich, a self-described "proud Hillary Clinton Democrat," announces that she opposes Barack Obama and will vote for John McCain. At a press conference this afternoon, Bartoschevich made this puzzling statement:
Going back to 1999, John McCain did an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle saying that overturning Roe v. Wade would not make any sense, because then women would have to have illegal abortions.

Michael Scherer writes, "Was she going off message? Or are Republicans engaging in some cagey multi-messaging?"
