Some NC 'Women for Hillary'... aren't

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a list of 100 North Carolina “Women for Hillary” Tuesday, featuring 98 of the state’s most prominent Democratic women – and two men with gender-neutral names.

North Carolina Public Radio and the Raleigh News and Observer report that Dana Cope - president of the State Employees’ Association of North Carolina – was inadvertently included in the press release of women backing the New York senator.

Also on the list: Ashley Thrift, a Winston-Salem lawyer and chief of staff to former North Carolina Sen. Ernest Hollings.

The Clinton campaign told the News and Observer: "We are proud of the broad support Senator Clinton has from women... and men across North Carolina."

    Well, at least she didn't call the small town residents of North Carolina bitter, bible-hugging, gun toters.

  3. Stop the DRAMA!

    Are we "misspeaking" again?

    Hillary's campaign is a disaster and her attacks are a reflection of herself: UGLY.

    This is so funny. Dana Cope and Ashley Thrift are actually men. It clearly shows how "OUT OF TOUCH" hillary is.

    Get ready for Hillary supporter's OUT OF TOUCH comments.

    Can anyone be surprised that Hillary Clinton has once again been caught lying to the American people?

    Angry, fed up, sick and tired of her deception–YES!

    But surprised? No possible way.

    The easiest way to tell when Hillary is lying is when her lips are moving.

    That's called a liar.

    I saw a website selling 'Hillary the Town Liar' t-shirt. I'm thinking of purchasing one to sport as the weather gets a bit warmer.

    Ah, the efficiency of the Clinton camp sparkles again.

    And some of you actually want these bumbleheads to run our country?

    What will it take for Americans to reject lying politicians? You know, any woman who could stick with a liar like Bill..is bound to pick up a few new ways to lie herself.

    Oops. Kind of funny, but mistakes happen. Apologies to all gender-neutral named folks out there.

    Well if all Hillary can call up is our divisions then she is in for a surprise. Women, Men, Boys and Girls all suffer equally from the effects of economic and political mismanagment of the past and equally seek solutions not divisions. What does she plan to do not what gender does she intend to sell her new fibs. Beware sniper fire.

    The fact that two men were included on this list makes the rest of the list suspect – and, well, Hillarious.

    Hillary Clinton: Ready to LIE on Day One!

    i am a transplanted new yorker down in charlotte, nc and i will support hillary clinton for the democratic nomination because she is the only real choice for president.

    both men and women are awaking to the fact that hillary is the only one who can win in the general election.

    That is how many votes she will get in NC too. 100.

    "Inadvertently Included'? Maybe Sen. Clinton should apologize to Dana Cope, also anyone whose name was included on this list without their permission, including the two men with gender-neutral names.

    What is going on with Sen. Clinton's campaign? Are these more lies, or just misspeaks?

    That's because there aren't 100 Women for Hillary in NC. Isn't she losing that state by something like 20 points?

    Might as well make up a few names here and there too. Heck, throw in a few guys. Inflate the numbers a bit...

    Hillary is pathetic AND trifling. Did she even think to ASK these women (and men) for their permission before TAKING their endorsement?

    wow. Think how she'd handle being commander in chief..that would be a fiasco.

    How pathetic. This woman continuously plays the gender card but accuses Obama of playing the race card when he hasn't. Now let's imagine Obama came out with a list of 100 black people who support him – Hillary's cries of racism would never stop.
