"Crying Hillary" Questioner Has Hosted Hillary Events(?) & Was a Jimmy Carter Photographer
Marianne Pernold Young the woman who asked Hillary the question that made her tear up about how “some people are ready to lead from day one and some people just aren’t” was an Ex-Jimmy Carter campaign photographer.
Marianne said she does not know anyone from the Clinton campaign but one report mentions that she has sponsored events for both Bill and Hillary Clinton.
From her website, Marianne Pernold Young includes a photo of a previous client Jimmy Carter.
Marianne Pernold-Young, who is married to E. Gordon Young and lives in Portsmouth, has hosted events for the Clintons!
This is from Digital Journal:
The million dollar “how are you doing” question was actually posed by an acquaintance of Marianne Pernold-Young. She is a freelance photographer who in the past has hosted events for both Clintons.
“No, I was not a plant,” she told The Mouth afterward in a phone call.
“I asked her as a girlfriend. All my friends keep asking, how does she do it? How does she do it? How does she look so put together?” Pernold Young says. “I had no idea she would react that way.”
MORE: E. Gordon Young (photo) is a practitioner of Kriya Yoga.
His wife Marianne took one of the photos on the website.
Doug Ross thinks this is starting to resemble the “CNN undecided voter plants” storyline.
UPDATE 2: It would be interesting to see which Democrats Marianne and her husband have been supporting financially. And, although the Clintons held several private gatherings in the Portsmouth area, I have not had any luck finding a definite link between the Young’s and the Clinton’s.
