DEALING THEMSELVES THE RACE CARD:
'Oreo' Rises Again: Cardin Staffer Sacked In Blog Flap (WBAL Radio as reported by Leonard Roberts and Robert Lang, September 16, 2006)
A blog has apparently led to the firing of a staffer in the Ben Cardin for Senate campaign.
According to the Washington Times Insider Politics blog, a person labeling herself the 'Persuasionatrix' wrote that she was on the staff of a high profile, contested Senate campaign and was based in Baltimore.
Persuasionatrix wrote that staffers should pose holding Oreo brand cookies under the caption 'devouring the competition.' [...]
There have been claims since Steele ran for lieutenant governor in 2002 that hecklers either showed or threw Oreo cookies during a debate in Baltimore. [...]
The Cardin staffer also allegedly posted statements on her blog about not being able to fire a subordinate whose performance was inadequate because the junior worker was black.
The President and Karl Rove should be working on getting Kweisi Mfume to join the GOP. Posted by Orrin Judd at September 16, 2006 5:36 PM
