US Republican Apologises for Elena Kagan "Sextape"

Conservative Think Tank Fellow Apologizes for Elena Kagan Sextape:Denies Tie to Heritage Foundation Event

Washington, DC – A conservative think tank fellow today apologized for giving the impression that an alleged “sextape” of US Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan was taken during an event at the Washington-based Heritage Foundation. In a statement issued today, GOP consultant Martin Eisenstadt said, “If I gave anyone the impression that the Heritage Foundation was in any way involved with the purported videotape incident with Ms. Kagan, then I would like to apologize. The Heritage Foundation is a stalwart of the American conservative movement and would never knowingly be involved in any events that might lead to such a sordid video recording.”

Eisenstadt was responding to a recent YouTube video in which he denies the existence of a sextape, but acknowledges that he had intimate relations with Ms. Kagan following an event with The Heritage Foundation.

According to its own website, The Heritage Foundation was a think tank founded in 1973 whose mission is to “formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.”

Eisenstadt himself is Sr. Fellow at the Harding Institute for Freedom & Democracy, a different Washington think tank with no official ties to the Heritage Foundation. An expert on Near East political and military affairs, Eisenstadt has been an adviser to numerous Republican candidates, including John McCain and Sarah Palin.
