CNN’s Camerota Spars With Ronna McDaniel Over RNC’s Sex Scandals: What Does This Say About ‘Culture’?

In recent months, the Republican National Committee’s former Finance Chair Steve Wynn and top deputy Elliott Broidy, have both been involved in sexual misconduct scandals. Another top deputy, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, has been involved as a fixer of sorts in several scandals. This begs the question which was asked Monday on New Day by Alisyn Camerota., who first listed off the RNC’s growing collection of scandals. “What does this all say about the culture at the RNC?” RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel tried to downplay the scandals — after stumbling over her response — by minimizing Wynn and Broidy’s roles. “Elliot and Steve resigned,” McDaniel said. “Obviously, the charges were troubling. We have hundreds of fundraisers.” Camerota pursued her line of questioning, as the interview grew tense. “In this Me Too moment what does it say that your finance committee is embroiled in this?” refused to concede to the idea that the scandals reflected poorly on the RNC alone. “Alisyn come on, it’s across party lines,” she said. “This isn’t just a Republican issue. The Me Too moment is effecting Republicans and Democrats.” Watch above, via CNN. [featured image via screengrab] —— Follow Joe DePaolo (@joe_depaolo) on Twitter
