Several assassination attempts on Obama, Romney 'nipped in bud' during campaign

New York , Fri, 09 Nov 2012 ANI

New York, Nov 9 (ANI): A number of attempts to assassinate US President Barack Obama and his Republican rival Mitt Romney were foiled by Secret Service agents over the course of the 2012 presidential campaign, a reporter has claimed.

In an article about Romney's intensive security detail written by GQ's Marc Ambinder, the journalist said that in the Secret Service's busiest year yet, "several assassination plots were nipped in the bud."

According to the New York Daily News, members of the media almost immediately questioned the claim, especially as Ambinder took to Twitter to suggest that more information might come out in a print edition of the article.

Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan told Politicker that they do not agree with Ambinder's report.

"We didn't work with Marc Ambinder on that article, so I don't know what his sourcing is," Donovan told the publication. (ANI)
