Late yesterday afternoon, The Daily Caller‘s Alex Pappas broke the news that Politico reporter Andy Barr has left the publication to go to work for the Democratic Party in Arizona. Barr, a national reporter for the publication since 2008, covered, among many stories, some on ex-Alaska Gov. and presidential hopeful Sarah Palin.
The conservative Daily Caller charges that Barr isn’t the only Democrat working for the publication and slanting the news in that direction. Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris vehemently denied the accusation.
