Maloney/Saujani Debate End Game–Maloney Takes Off

There was an odd moment at the end of the Reshma Saujani/Carolyn Maloney debate today. Afterwards, Maloney streamed out of the studio as a herd of reporters followed, shouting behind her, “Great debate. Great debate.”

Despite entreaties from the press, Maloney would not stop and talk, so members of the press piled on to the elevator with her.

When asked how she felt about Saujani calling her a liar during the debate, Maloney responded, “I believe in free speech and she is entited to say whatever she likes. But I am more of a person of action.”

Expect awkward video to be posted shortly.
