Source: Jake Tapper "Pestered" Sean Parnell, "Blew Up" His Phone Like an "Obsessed Lunatic," Trying to Convince Him To Deny That He'd Tried To Convince Him Not To Run Against His Democrat Buddy Conor Lamb

Oh my goodness, this headline and subhed.

This sounds an awful lot like the Jake Tapper I know.

He's a Twitter Terrorist, a Direct Message Stalker.


CNN's Jake Tapper pestered GOP candidate Sean Parnell for statement dismissing scandalous DM: source

'Tapper was blowing up his phone like an obsessed lunatic,' a source close to Parnell told Fox News


...

While Tapper has remained silent on the story publicly, he has apparently been working the phones behind the scenes. Calls from Tapper to Parnell have come "multiple times" since the story broke, a source close to Parnell -- who does not work for Parnell’s campaign -- told Fox News.

"I was with Sean the day one of these stories broke. Tapper was blowing up his phone like an obsessed lunatic," the source close to Parnell said. "Everyone knew it. By the end of the day, every time Sean’s phone rang or beeped, half a dozen people would roll their eyes, turn to Sean and ask, 'Tapper?'"

Tapper has also reached out to people close to Parnell, including political allies, attempting to get the Parnell campaign to issue a joint statement that downplays the CNN anchor's actions.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Tapper has behaved like “teenage girl who just lost her prom king boyfriend," the source close to Parnell told Fox News, adding that he would be stunned if Parnell's campaign actually issued a statement defending Tapper.
