Here’s the Picture This Dem Candidate Didn’t Want You to See

Democratic congressional candidate Ann Kirkpatrick’s campaign staffers threw out a reporter from a campaign event on Thursday to prevent a picture of Kirkpatrick and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from being taken. That picture surfaced on Friday.

Arizona Daily Star reporter Joe Ferguson tweeted about how Kelly Presnell, a staff photographer for the Arizona Daily Star, was thrown out of Kirkpatrick’s event with Pelosi on Thursday.

According to the Arizona Daily Star:

“A Kirkpatrick spokeswoman, Abigail O’Brien, initially told the Star the gathering was closed to the press, even though an Associated Press reporter and photographer were allowed to stay.”

Now, though, we’re getting a better idea why the Kirkpatrick’s campaign didn’t want local press at their event with Pelosi.

“Here is the picture that @Ann_Kirkpatrick’s campaign was so desperately trying to hide yesterday that they threw out @KellyPresnell out of the Pima County Democratic headquarters yesterday. It is a picture of her with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. #AZ02,” Ferguson tweeted on Friday.

This picture with Pelosi comes despite the fact that during the Democratic primary, Kirkpatrick, who is running in Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District, said that she would not support Pelosi as speaker if elected. The emergence of this picture does not help Kirkpatrick’s claims.
