Bunning Used TelePrompTer in Debate

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) stands accused "of cheating during the taping of a political debate scheduled to be shown tonight," the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

"The debate was unusual to start. It was originally scheduled to be taped Monday at WKYT studios in Lexington. But Bunning, claiming he had to stay in Washington to cast votes, participated over a video screen via a satellite hookup... Bunning appeared to be reading his closing and opening statements."

The Kentucky Post notes that "almost immediately, there was speculation that Bunning had relied on a TelePrompTer during part of the debate."

The senator's campaign manager admitted to it yesterday, but noted use of the device was "within the rules" of the debate.
