This is getting weird–Hillary’s campaign, I mean.
It’s normal for government officials to have their phones and cameras confiscated prior to a national security briefing–reason being that classified or sensitive information could be discussed, and it’s responsible to prevent this type of information from being leaked. Hillary Clinton has taken this to a whole new level by doing the same thing for voters during a campaign stop.
It’s disturbing and creepy. What is she trying to hide?

Iowans had their cellphones and cameras confiscated before getting to meet the Democratic presidential frontrunner, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“On Thursday, Clinton’s motorcade left the SpringHill Suites for Main Street Cafe, where she met privately with party leaders for about an hour and a half,” reports KETV in Omaha.
“Pottawattamie County Democratic Chairwoman Linda Nelson said the meeting was so private that everyone invited was asked to hand over their cellphones and cameras before taking part.”
The Clinton campaign has been trying to control Hillary’s campaign events as much as possible.
Taking the cellphones and cameras of possible voters, however, is usually reserved for high-level national security events, not campaign stops.
Does the Clinton campaign think we are stupid? I guess the answer is yes. This story makes me want to attend a Clinton campaign event AND TAKE PICTURES.
