After a November 6 speech at a biodiesel plant in Iowa, Senator Hillary Clinton took questions. But "some of the questions from the audience were planned in advance," reports Patrick Caldwell. Grinnell College student Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff said that "one of the senior [Clinton campaign] staffers told me what" to ask. She said that "staffers prompted Clinton to call on her and another [person] who had been approached before the event." Gallo-Chasanoff's question was: "As a young person, I'm worried about the long-term effects of global warming. How does your plan combat climate change?" Clinton responded: "You know, I find as I travel around Iowa that it's usually young people that ask me about global warming." A campaign spokesperson told FOX News, "A member of our staff did discuss a possible question. ... However, Senator Clinton did not know which questions she was calling on during the event. This is not standard policy and will not be repeated." In related news, CBS has obtained a picture "of the now infamous fake FEMA press conference held during the California wildfires." The press gallery seats are occupied by "high-level agency employees."
