Politico:

A well-publicized weekend photo-op for Mitt Romney turns out to have been missing a piece of information that might have undermined its credibility: the unemployed single mom at the center of the event was the mother of a Romney staffer. ...

After all of the fuss the media and the rightwingnutosphere made over Sen Clinton's campaign coaching a questioner in Iowa, I wonder how much attention this will get? I don't know about you but if you ask me this seems all-too reminiscent of Bush's fake photo-ops, fake WMD evidence, fake Iraq news stories, phony pressers, and fake town hall meetings so he could "catapult the propaganda." Does America really want to go down that road again?

Can you help us out?
