Someone thought this was a good idea.
Mother Jones reported two female interns at FreedomWorks played the parts, with one wearing a panda suit and one wearing a Clinton mask. In the video, FreedomWorks Executive Vice President Adam Brandon is shown waking from a nap at his desk before wandering down the hall and witnessing the panda performing oral sex on Clinton in a dream sequence.
The video was screened for FreedomWorks staffers and was supposed to be shown at FreePac, a July 2012 conference in Dallas. The video was scrapped after staffers objected.
“How was that not some form of sexual harassment?” a former FreedomWorks official told the magazine. “And there were going to be thousands of Christian conservatives at this thing. This was a terrible lack of judgment.”
The magazine also reported Matt Kibbe, the group’s president, issued guidelines to hire women based on their appearance. Kibbe and Brandon were allies at the organization.
