Darius Rucker Weighs In On His Name Being Mentioned In Leaked Email

As the 2016 presidential election comes to a close tonight (11/8), Darius Rucker is weighing in on the recent news of his name being mentioned in a leaked email related to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. At the time the news broke, The Daily Caller reported that leaked emails from Clinton’s State Department staffer Capricia Marshall showed that she and a man named John Sykes asked figure skater Michelle Kwan and Big Machine Label president Scott Borchetta to convince Rucker to endorse Hillary.


·       Ultimately, Darius never publicly endorsed Clinton for president and in a recent interview with Taste of Country, he said he was “shocked” to find out his name had been mentioned in one of the leaked emails. Rucker said, “I’m just not in politics. It wasn’t that I’m not supporting this person or that person, it’s just that I didn’t want to get involved in politics, and here I am being brought in.”
