GOP Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock Posts YouTube Responses To Obamacare SCOTUS Decision

BY Sarah Lai Stirland | Thursday, June 21 2012

There's no doubt that every candidate running for office is preparing to fire off their messages once the Supreme Court issues its decision on the constitutionality of President Obama's Affordable Care Act.

GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock's campaign staff got a little trigger happy on Thursday, however, and posted five different video responses from the Tea Party Republican addressing the potential decisions the court could make.

Mourdock's staff have since removed the videos, but not before others were able to grab copies. You can watch Mourdock's videos here.. (h/t Politico)
