Carly Fiorina Caught On Open Mic

Note to PR pros: when you’re on camera, don’t say anything inappropriate, even if the segment hasn’t started taping yet.

In this video shot yesterday, California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is caught making comments about Barbara Boxer‘s haircut, Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, and Fox News host Sean Hannity, reports TVNewser.

“It’s really surprising that on the first day of the general, Meg Whitman is going on Sean Hannity,” she commented to an off-screen aide. “I think it’s bizarre…I think it’s a very bad choice actually. You know how he is.”

Fiorina’s press secretary told CNN, “This was nothing but early morning small talk.” Nonetheless, it’s a bit surprising from Fiorina, who is not a small time candidate, and should be used to the media routine from her days as CEO of HP.

She tried to clarify the remarks with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News last night.
