Sen. Sherrod Brown, Wife Connie Schultz Called Out by Blogger for Hugging
Connie Schultz posts "gotcha" exchange from blogger looking for "an expose on journalists in the elite media who socialize with elected officials they are assigned to cover."
At a Beachwood event Monday honoring a local World War II veteran with a Purple Heart, Sen. Sherrod Brown joked about the popularity of his wife, former Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz.
On the East Side of Cleveland, he said, people don't greet him. They say, "Where's Connie?"
But at least one conservative blogger did not know about their marriage.
Yesterday, Schultz posted an email exchange with a blogger — whom she did not name — who said that they were working on "an expose on journalists in the elite media who socialize with elected officials they are assigned to cover."
The blogger had spotted a photo of Schultz hugging Brown and asked her to comment.
I am surprised you did not find a photo of me kissing U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown so hard he passes out from lack of oxygen. He's really cute.
He's also my husband.
Schultz, who now lives in Avon with Brown, resigned from the newspaper in 2011, citing Brown's reelection campaign, and has written books about her husband's campaign.
