Our Truthdigger of the Week goes on MSNBC to share her story of standing up to Sen. John McCain.

Crooks and Liars:

I hope I have the sequence correct. Many of you are aware of Jean Sarah Rohe’s graduation speech which she changed after learning that John McCain’s would be following hers at The New School. She then wrote an article on the Huffington Post to explain her rationale behind her remarks. This led to McCain’s staffer Mark Salter, to write a scathing article to answer her, in which he called her an idiot. Rohe then responded the following day saying: I’m sad to see that Mr. Salter intentionally misinterpreted my writing, presumably to hurt my feelings and frighten me into silence.

Jean joined Keith Olbermann to discuss what transpired.
