Dem Candidate Katie Hobbs Will NEVER Live This One Down [Video]
Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs ran into the toilet of a business in a failed attempt to hide from Project Veritas. The reporter from PV was just trying to ask Hobbs to respond to her own comments about how she refuses to 'talk politics' with people she doesn't know. The line of questioning was aggressive. The reporter seemed respectful. So why did she hide?
A representative with the activist group Project Veritas Action (PVA), known for its hidden camera stings, approached Hobbs, the Democratic nominee to be the next governor of Arizona, while she appeared to be eating outside at a restaurant. After PVA press secretary R.C. Maxwell introduced himself, Hobbs immediately made to leave, knocking her drink over in the process.
“Secretary Hobbs?” Maxwell asked, walking up to Hobbs.
“Oh my God,” an apparently surprised Hobbs said.
“How’s it going? Didn’t mean to scare you there,” Maxwell said before introducing himself. “I want to ask you a brief question about …”
Hobbs interjected,” You have a great day,” then got up and spilled her drink before leaving the outdoor dining area. Maxwell followed.
“I just wanted to ask you about some comments you’ve made on undercover footage regarding having a disdain for discussing politics, ma’am,” Maxwell said. He was referencing an undercover video that shows Hobbs recounting a story about how she refused to talk about her job with an Uber driver because she did not want to discuss politics with “anyone who I don’t know.”
Hobbs began walking down the street refusing to answer Maxwell’s continued questions. A later clip showed her walking into a restaurant bathroom to escape the confrontation with Maxwell. Someone familiar to Hobbs later came and escorted her past Maxwell and out of the restaurant to a car waiting in the parking lot.
Hobbs Campaign’s Head Political Consultant, Joe Wolf, then came to the scene to 'rescue her'. The funniest part about all of this is that he too, then ran into the restroom for a time.

Why was Hobbs hiding? Maxwell wasn't threatening her. I mean, she is trying to get into politics, right? She must know that she will have to talk politics with people she doesn't know, right? To me, this just seemed like one of the dumbest reasons to run from a reporter. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
