[Ed. – Come to think of it, that’s probably the best tack to take after you’ve said something mind-bendingly weird about doing indecent things with animals. Why should Chris McDaniel’s campaign do all the strange stuff?]
When asked by a local television reporter to respond to his bizarre comments about unsavory acts he said he committed with animals as a child, Cochran said he doesn’t remember.
“I think maybe I was misunderstood,” Cochran said. “I don’t remember ever saying [that].”
What Cochran said—according to video posted online by the Jackson Clarion-Ledger—was that as a child he did “all kinds of indecent things with animals.”
His campaign spokesman Jordan Russell at first tried to play it off to The Daily Caller as if it were a joke but has not responded to followup inquiries about what Cochran meant by “indecent acts.”
A local reporter for WLBT, a local NBC affiliate, said Cochran “seemed confused” when he was asked to clarify the remarks on Thursday.
