Katherine Harris Charges Papers Altered Her Make-Up
Who doesn't remember Katherine Harris' outrageous makeup during the 2000 Bush v. Gore election campaign? Now, she's charging the newspapers "colorized" her photos to heighten it.
On Monday, on a conservative radio talk show, Harris, now a congresswoman from Longboat Key running for the U.S. Senate, hit back, blaming newspapers for the criticism and charging that some - without saying which - altered her photographs.
``I'm actually very sensitive about those things, and it's personally painful,'' Harris said when host Sean Hannity asked about her image problems from 2000. ``But they're outrageously false, No. 1, and No. 2, you know, whenever they made fun of my makeup, it was because the newspapers colorized my photograph,'' Harris said.
She didn't explain what she meant by ``colorized.'' Asked Tuesday to point to an altered photograph, Harris and her staff could not. Her response to the question, said spokesman Adam Goodman, was, ``I haven't worn blue eye shadow since the seventh grade when I was in the Girl Scouts.'' She didn't name a newspaper that showed blue eye shadow.
Okay, who can be the first one to find a photo of Ms. Harris wearing blue eyeshadow? Never mind, I just found one.
