Just because it looks like Legion has taken up permanent residence behind Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s bulbous watery eyes, doesn’t mean she can’t be amiable, or even amenable.
In fact, she can be downright easy, if the right man just throws a little love her way…
Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her,* according to emails obtained by POLITICO.
The proposal to Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan was straightforward: retract critical statements he made to a reporter in return for Wasserman Schultz publicly backing his cannabis initiative that she had trashed just months earlier. Morgan declined the offer with a sharp email reply sent to a go-between, who described the congresswoman as being in a “tizzy.”
“No,” Morgan responded. “She is a bully. I beat bullies up for a living.”
The congresswoman’s more recent dispute with Morgan unfolded Wednesday afternoon. POLITICO sent an email at 3:50 p.m. to Wasserman Schultz’s office seeking comment on criticisms from Morgan and other medical marijuana advocates. Three minutes later, an adviser replied that she had no comment.
In the meantime, Wasserman Schultz’s office sprung into action. Her team reached out to the campaign manager for the medical marijuana initiative — Ben Pollara, a top Democratic fundraiser and consultant in Miami — and offered him a deal. …
Pollara, who refused to comment, detailed the offer in an email to Morgan a few hours later, the donor said, with the subject line: “DWS.”
“In a tizzy over this politico story. Saying she might be willing to support new amendment. Any chance you’ll retract your statement,” Pollara wrote.
Morgan responded about two hours later in his email calling her a “bully.”
“Actions have consequences,” Morgan told POLITICO on Thursday. “Her days of pushing people around are over.” … [More]
One of the unintended consequences of a Democratic Republic is that, in any given election year, a handful of voters can make all of our lives miserable by electing someone like DWS.
It’s like lumbago… It keeps coming back, every time the weather gets cool and the trees shed their leaves.
It’s still pretty darn great country, though.
