George Will Discloses Wife’s Ties To Rick Perry Campaign On ‘This Week’

(By Josh Feldman, Mediaite) - Christiane Amanpour asked George Will about Rick Perry‘s “very bad week” on 'This Week' today, but before discussing the Texas governor’s presidential campaign, Will disclosed that his wife Mari Maseng joined the Perry campaign last week, making her focus campaign messaging and debate preparation. Will’s wife has worked previously as communications directors to both Ronald Reagan and Bob Dole. In the past few weeks, Will has written several columns in the 'Washington Post', one of which was highly critical of Mitt Romney, one of Perry’s chief rivals in the field.

Politico notes that on last Sunday’s edition of 'This Week', Will was very critical of not just Romney but Herman Cain. In fact, according to Will, some Romney advisors have been claiming Will now faces a conflict of interest in criticizing their candidate.
