That damn rogue staffer – you know, the one who inexplicably damages every candidate’s campaign by doing something inappropriate that “nobody knew about” – has surfaced in California. From the Associated Press:
The Republican congressional candidate whose campaign was linked to an intimidating letter sent to Hispanic voters promised Sunday to stay in the race despite pressure to withdraw.
“I’m not going to quit this race; I’m going to win this race,” Tan Nguyen told reporters at his campaign headquarters.
Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant trying to unseat popular Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez, last week blamed an unidentified staffer for sending out 14,000 letters warning immigrants they could be deported or jailed for voting in next month’s election. The mailings sparked state and federal probes.
I had that posted Thursday — although with the variation “over-zealous” staffer. Points for an “At least he’s not your” construction?
Just kidding. Sorry we missed it earlier.
