Political operatives have long thought such a video could possibly be useful to damage Granholm during her rise.
Liz Boyd, who was Granholm's press secretary when she was governor, said she learned of the video on Thursday and sent it to Granholm, who now hosts her own show - "The War Room" on Current TV.
“The Dating Game,” which took off in the mid-’60s and flowered into the mid-’70s, was the show that launched a thousand imitators, from “The Bachelor” to “The Newlywed Game.” On the show, a bachelorette would be hidden behind a wall, where she would ask three young men, prospective dates, questions about themselves. “ When the embarrassed yucks were muddled through, the bachelorette chose her favorite bachelor, and the happy couple were sent on a date (always with a chaperone, and often to some far-off, exotic locale).
The questions were all framed provocatively, with plenty of opportunity for a naughty answer. In the years since the show aired, some fascinating names came up on You Tube’s radar — of on-the-prowl singles who would one day make a name for themselves.
