SUBJ--YET ANOTHER BALONEY BUREAUCRAT
Whatever the difference between an "interim" Chair and "permanent" one is of little significance, thy all have one thing in common. They'll say anything to trash an opponent.
Now its Donna Brazile, who, as a campaign staffer for Mike Dukakis back in '88, lost her job over a cheap shot at the VP then running for Reagan's job.
VICTORIA ADVOCATE--OCT 21, 1988-- (OCR DECODED--UNEDITED)--
NEW YORK — Democratic presi-dential nominee Michael S. Dukakis personally apologized to Vice Presi-dent George Bush Thursday evening after an aide publicly said "George Bush owes it to the American people to fess up" about a rumor concerning an extramarital affair that rippled through Wall Street on Wednesday.
Dukakis made his apology when he met Bush briefly before the annual Alfred E. Smith Dinner, the Catholic archdiocese's fund-raising dinner in Manhattan, according to staff mem-bers from both campaigns. The aide, Donna Brazile, resigned, saying "today I made certain com-ments which I deeply regret." Bush's spokeswoman, Sheila Tate, said: "The Bush campaign has no comment, no reaction."
Brazile, 28, a deputy field director who helped serve as a liaison to the black community, earlier in the day had told reporters accompanying Dukakis that "the American people have every right to know if Barbara Bush will share that bed with him in the White House. "I'm talking about George Bush and somebody with the initials J.F. or whatever the names are," she said. She was apparently alluding to a sto-ry published by the LA Weekly in Los Angeles, which quoted unidenti-fied sources as saying Bush had had a longstanding affair with a member of his staff and also had an affair during the mid-1970s with another woman.
Now we have this woman out to make more allegations about whoever looks like they're ready for a cheap shot. Why she was ever on the payroll at CNN in the first place is a big mystery, other than her ability to make up rumors about people.
