How did a former undercover CIA operative who spent more than eight years fighting terrorism get branded as a teacher at "Terror High?"
The strange ordeal for Abigail Spanberger, a Democratic House candidate, began when U.S. Postal Service employees wrongly delivered her confidential personnel file to Republican operatives.
Those operatives seized on Spanberger's stint teaching Bronte and Shakespeare as a way to sink her campaign against GOP Rep. Dave Brat in Virginia.
Both Republicans and Democrats hurl dirt in campaigns. The involvement of the Postal Service gives the attack on Spanberger a particularly odd twist that drew outrage from national security veterans and scrutiny from investigators.
