Just minutes after Roll Call reported that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee had stopped running ads in Kentucky, the White House Press Corps shared a hearty laugh at the expense of Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, who has refused to acknowledge whether or not she voted for Barack Obama.
ABC's Jon Karl questioned Earnest after he "boldly" admitted that he voted for his boss.
"Do you believe you've violated the sanctity of the ballot box by telling us who you voted for?" Karl asked.
"I'll leave that for you guys to decide," Earnest said.
Fox's Ed Henry took a different approach, asking Earnest what Grimes' silence says about President Obama.
Even Earnest could not help but join in on poking fun at Grimes
"I'll tell you that I voted for the president," Earnest said with a smirk.
