Stay Scheming: Ex-Democratic President Jimmy Carter’s Grandson Helped Leak Money Mitt Romney’s Secret “47%” Fundraiser Video

- By Bossip Staff

There is poetic justice in this world…

Former president Jimmy Carter’s grandson helped leak video of Mitt Romney at a private fundraiser to Mother Jones Magazine and has set of a fire storm for the Presidential hopeful:

James Carter IV helped connect Mother Jones reporter David Corn with video of Romney at a fundraiser saying, among other things, that it is not his “job” to win over the 47 percent of voters committed to President Obama, because they are “dependent on government” and he will “never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

“Any time that you can find a clip that strengthens the narrative already established, that’s what becomes a big deal,” Carter told Daily Intel. “I’ve been trying to get paid for this but it hasn’t worked out yet. This might help.”

Carter told NBC News that after he sent the Mother Jones article to his grandfather, the former president responded warmly, writing: “James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa.”

Carter also told NBC that Romney’s criticism of his grandfather bothered him, providing extra motivation to release the videos.

“It gets under my skin — mostly the weakness on the foreign policy stuff,” Carter said. “I just think it’s ridiculous. I don’t like criticism of my family.”

After years of Carter bashing at the hands of Mitt Romney, the grandson finally takes his revenge. You know what they say, revenge is a dish best served cold and via Youtube!
