Presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina has boasted of how, during her tenure as HP chief executive, she funneled truckloads of servers to the US National Security Agency (NSA) to help with their surveillance efforts.
As to whether Fiorina may have seen these newly released videos, and this new video – not the edited Center for Medical Progress video – is what she was referring to, Cunningham says no. It now reads: “some of whom were affiliated with Planned Parenthood.”].
“She gave Barbara Boxer a huge run for her money”, recalls Beth Miller, a senior advisor on Fiorina’s 2010 campaign. “I don’t know what that has to do with this”.
Just before Fiorina took the debate stage that night, Jon Fleischman caught a quick glimpse of her from the audience. “I believe this is something we must stand up and fight for because it is about the character of our nation”. But Fiorina took issue with that report’s findings, labelling it “disingenuous”, and complaining that it “undermined the morale of a whole lot of people who dedicated their lives to keeping the country safe”, according to Yahoo News.
“I defend and will continue to defend Planned Parenthood because I think that the services that Planned Parenthood provides are broad and necessary for millions of American women“.
“When Carly made those reductions it was probably – I wasn’t here, but I suspect she was trying to do in a few ways what I have tried to do, which is to make this company more competitive”, Whitman told CNN Money in June.
For a candidate like Fiorina, the goal appears to be demonstrating – to voters, to donors, to potential endorsers, et al – that she’s the real deal.
The scene Fiorina talks about is from CMP’s “Human Capital” documentary web series. The controversy surrounding Fiorina’s demonstrable dishonesty has had no discernible effect on her support within the party, so perhaps the Republican candidate’s lie will be inconsequential? It became pretty clear after the collapse that people were OK – no one was seriously hurt – and Carly Fiorina got back on stage and initially acted like nothing had really happened and continued with her prepared remarks.
Fiorina then encouraged Shireman to view the videos, which Shireman said she had already done, and after a bit more sparring the two separated without reaching any points of agreement.
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says in a new interview the interrogation technique of waterboarding employed by the United States in the early days of the war on terror was appropriate. She is now the second place GOP candidate behind Donald Trump, whose own support dropped from 32% to 24%.
