MSNBC conducted street interviews Saturday, as a way of getting reactions and opinions from every day folk about the recent Comey hearing. However what they didn’t tell you is that one of these random every day folks was actually an Obama Campaign Aid.
Late in Saturday’s show, host Richard Lui turned the broadcast over to NBC News’ Jinah Kim, who was in Los Angeles, CA snagging street interviews with local residents.
Among those interviewed were a woman who recently moved to the U.S. from the U.K., a tourist visiting LA from Kansas City, MO — and a possible Obama campaign aide.
“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and the fact that he would make a very specific request to have everybody else leave the office so that he would be alone with Comey, for me, speaks volumes,” a woman named Alma Marquez, identified only as a “Los Angeles Resident,” said during the segment.
Oddly enough, Marquez looks eerily similar to the same Alma Marquez who served as the CA Latino vote director for Obama’s campaign in 2008 and describes herself as a “community and political strategist.”
