A former Pentagon official gunning to be the Republican nominee to run against Hillary Clinton claims that the New York junior Senator is using helicopters to spy on her, according to a story on the front page of Saturday's New York Post, RAW STORY has found.
Kathleen McFarland, a first time candidate for office, is reported to have "stunned a crowd of Suffolk County Republicans on Thursday" with her claims.
"Hillary Clinton is really worried about me, and is so worried, in fact, that she had helicopters flying over my house in Southampton today taking pictures," said McFarland as related to the Post by "a prominent GOP activist who was at the events."
Excerpts from "Kooky KT's spy tale" written by Fredric U. Dicker, state editor for the New York Post:
"She wasn't joking, she was very, very serious, and she also claimed that Clinton's people were taking pictures across the street from her house in Manhattan, taking pictures from an apartment across the street from her bedroom," added the eyewitness, who is not involved in the Senate race.
McFarland spokesman William O'Reilly responded that the GOP hopeful was just kidding around with her far-fetched claims.
"It was a joke, and people laughed," O'Reilly insisted.
But three witnesses who were present said nobody in the audience cracked a smile.
"The whole room sort of went silent when she said it," one person said.
"You could see peoples' jaws drop after she said it. A guy next to me just turned to me and said, 'I guess she didn't take her Xanax today,' " the witness added.
