Move along, nothing to see here. The left scoffed when it was revealed this woman had Obama at her first wedding, now we find out she visited Joe Biden at his home just this year. No wonder she was so hopelessly in the tank last night.
White House records reveal that the moderator of last night’s vice presidential debate, Martha Raddatz, visited Vice President Joe Biden at his official residence on March 26, 2012. Raddatz is an employee of ABC News.
As the records show, that day Raddatz visited the VPR (or, the vice president’s residence) for a “Women’s History Month Reception.” That record was released on June 29, 2012.
According to Biden’s schedule released the day before the event, “the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will host a reception in honor of Women’s History Month at the Naval Observatory.”
There appears to be no pool report from the event, which presumably was widely attended, that might have recorded the details from the events.
On at least one other occasion, Raddatz visited the White House. According to records, that visit was on December 18, 2009. The reason for that visit is not know, though her meeting appears to have taken place in the Old Executive Office Building, and not the West Wing.
Raddatz interrupted Paul Ryan repeatedly last night and was mocked as the third debate.
Now none of this is overtly damning, yet it just further exposes the incestuous relationship between the DC elite and the media. We’re wondering, did Raddatz report this when she was up for the plum debate spot?
