For John, BLUF: Republican Candidate has staffer who lies to the press just before the election. Nothing to see here; just move along.
So, this guy's staffer put out the word, just before the election, that the Candidate was guilty of sexual harrassment. The Candidate lost. Turns out that the staffer lied. "Former Staffer For California Republican Admits to Lies That Ruined Campaign".
I hope this was not a coordinated effort.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
