Leaks and Tweaks

On February 27, 2006 By

Is this a signal that someone wants Paul out of the limelight? Why would a letter from a Republican’s “lady friend” be coming out in the PeeDee Openers to attempt to disparage a candidate who isn’t even in the freakin’ race? Apparently someone wants Paul to stfu. I wonder who that someone is?:

On the day the world found out that Paul Hackett was dropping his Democratic Senate campaign, his law office in downtown Cincinnati was busy with another priority — soliciting an accident victim via form letter.
