Per BuzzFeed:

But asked whether Rhoades or anyone else on the campaign was involved in leaking the tape, communications director Gail Gitcho e-mailed, “We did not have any involvement.”

The report noted the relationship between Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades and Drudge.

Gitcho also said she doesn’t know if the video is newsworthy. “What is the news?” she said. “I don’t know.”

BuzzFeed earlier posted an edited version of the video Drudge appears to be teasing: a 2007 speech by Obama at Hampton University, in which he speaks about race.
