reporters.jpgIn our earlier press release, we identified Steve Abbot, who wrote the letter on behalf of the Collins campaign calling for a “civil level of discourse,” as Collins’ campaign chief of staff. In fact, Abbot is her Senate chief of staff. Correction duly noted.

It does, however, raise an interesting question. What is Abbot doing working on the campaign? Is this something he is doing in his spare time, or is he being paid by the federal government to do so?

No doubt Collins’ good friend Joe Lieberman can give her advice on how to handle the bloggers who criticized him for his sleazy campaign tactics and are now calling her out for engaging in the same. I think it would be nice for such close friends who share nearly identical voting records on the war and an abiding love of George Bush to come together for solace when their war mongering extremism gets challenged online.
