Klobuchar Displays Class and Character

I received an E-Mail from a local news reporter regarding the developing story involving a 'blogger' leaking protected content from Kennedy's website to a Klobuchar staffer. Here is a portion of my response:
I would never even attempt to access protected information. Each campaign has a right to release their protected content on their own terms. I had not heard of the incident, so I took a quick peek at the Strib and found the article. It appears that the Klobuchar campaign is handling this situation in the most appropriate way possible.

In all sincerity, I have know idea who may have been the one to leak the video.
The Klobuchar campaign obviously has the E-Mail from the blogger, so it is only a matter of time before we find out who it is.

As unfortunate as the situation is, Amy is clearly showing how committed to integrity she is with her rapid response and inclusion of the necessary investigative procedures to resolve this issue in a timely manner:
Goldfarb went on to say that Klobuchar, the Hennepin County attorney, directed him to report the incident to federal law enforcement for review. In a brief phone interview, Goldfarb said the matter was turned over to the FBI, but said he wouldn't add to the information contained in his press release.

"What happened here was wrong," Klobuchar said in her own statement. "By reporting the blogger's activities and this incident to law enforcement, we are doing the right thing."

Klobuchar also apologized to Kennedy and his campaign.
This lady is pure class and I will be honored to have her represent me in the Senate.
