[Ed. – So what is it when a candidate pays someone to go seek dirt out from a foreign government? Worse? Better?]
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Thursday that it would be “unthinkable” for a presidential campaign to accept information from a foreign government trying to meddle it the election.
“Let’s distinguish between a foreign official making an off-hand comment at a dinner about the campaign versus a foreign government trying to influence an election. In the latter case, that would be unthinkable. It would be totally inappropriate, and it would strike at the heart of our democracy,” Romney told reporters..
He added that it would “be wrong and unthinkable that any candidate for president would accept such information.”
