Story broke last ~8/2021.

This is Newsweek, so not surprising, but bad press nonetheless. As usual it was the way the media articulated the story. His media staff should have crafted a response pronto.

I was harsh with him because his camp was quiet. The less engaged public, after reading this story, puts doubts in minds about his motives for running for office.

Now the Washington Examiner was more measured in their take on the situation.
