Katherine Harris in Indiana...What Was She Smoking?

Josh Marshall has the story of Katherine Harris's bogus terror threat comments Monday, in which she said a middle-eastern man was arrested in connection with a plot to blow up a power plant in Indiana. She claimed an Indiana mayor told her....the mayors say they don't know what she's talking about.

Florida residents take note:

Harris, a Republican from Longboat Key who is running for re-election, said the case was an example of the nation's success in fighting terrorism.

She should be booted along with Bush.

Update: Ms. Harris attempts an explanation.

Update: Here's More from Harris on Monday: [link via Agonist] Here's what she said there:

U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris said Monday that the United States has "literally defeated 100 (potential) terrorist attacks on this country" in the past three years, some of which could have been as deadly as the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center. Speaking Monday night in Venice at a rally in support of President Bush, Harris said the United States is winning the war against terrorism. "His remarkable leadership … has made our country safe," Harris told an overflow crowd of more than 600 at the Holiday Inn. The event was sponsored by the Republican Club of South Sarasota County.
