Former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend said in a social media post on Monday that former President George H. W. Bush told her he is planning to break with his party to support Democrat Hillary Clinton in November.
"The President told me he's voting for Hillary!!” Kennedy Townsend, a Democrat and the eldest daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, wrote on Facebook under a picture of her shaking the president's hand.
The post appears to have been removed since Politico first reported about it on Monday night. Asked by The Baltimore Sun to confirm the exchange on Tuesday, Kennedy Townsend emailed back a single sentence: "What was said was said."
