Stephanopoulos was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with an expired license and license plates.
ABC News commentator George Stephanopoulos directed pointed, hard-edged questions to Republican presidential candidates during Saturday night’s New Hampshire debate, often attacking without providing evidence to justify his broadsides.
When questioning former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Stephanopoulos, a former senior advisor in the administration of Democratic President Bill Clinton, premised some inquiries on the assertion — offered without supporting facts — that Romney’s job-creation statistics were inaccurate.
“Now, there have been questions about that calculation of 100,000 jobs. So if you could explain it a little more,” Stephanopoulos asked Romney of the former governor’s claims about jobs created by companies he has helmed. “I’ve read some analysts who look at it and say that you’re counting the jobs that were created but not counting the jobs that were taken away. Is that accurate?”
“No, it’s not accurate,” Romney bluntly responded. “It includes the net of both. I’m a good enough numbers guy to make sure I got both sides of that.”
Stephanopoulos did not cite any analysts by name.
In another line of questioning, Stephanopoulos asked Romney if he believes “that states have the right to ban contraception, or is that trumped by a constitutional right to privacy?”
Romney responded by questioning Stephanopoulos’ logic and his choice to raise a hypothetical situation that would never happen.

Is CNN enjoying over the top ratings? Are more people watching MSNBC or AL Jezeera than any other? Which organization shoulders the responsibility of being the voice of most Americans?
Romney as a job creator huh? Chewy, Romney is the prototypical bosshole. I've quit and been fired from more jobs than any two people, ergo, I've had my share of bossholes. I would never want a Romney-created job. That job would suck. I'd walk out of a Romney-conducted interview.
