Find out about it quickly, Ben.

One of Ben Cardin's staffers got fired for being a racist moron. She's got a blog, and some of the comments on that blog didn't really reflect well on the Senate Candidate.

Now, she posts that an intern in the office was letting the office use his Wal Mart (a Democrat who shops at Wal Mart?) employee discount card.

When asked about the post on the blog, Cardin was befuddled.
The staffer, Ursula Gruber, who was fired by the candidate's campaign for making racially charged comments in her blog, also mentions in her blog a Wal-Mart discount card that she says was used illegally by people in the office.

"I am not sure of what you are talking about, I'm not sure of what you are talking about," said Cardin when he was asked by WBAL's Scott Wykoff if that allegation would be investigated by his campaign.

"I'll check out what you are talking about, I'm not familiar with what you are talking about," said Cardin.

The best quote of all time:
One day earlier, Cardin told WBAL's Chip Franklin and Clarence Mitchell IV on WBAL's 'The Buzz', "We know anything that gets out on a blog we are going to know about it immediately, and every other campaign knows about it immediately."

"Let me tell you something," said Cardin on WBAL on Monday. "When you put something out on a blog you find out about it pretty quickly."

Why is that such a great quote? Read the blog (it's been removed from Blogspot, but Wizbang has the cached page). You may note the post. Dated August 13, 2006.
