Sometimes money can’t buy you friends.
It also can’t buy you paid staffers willing to put up with you and your ethics.
Yet another person has bailed on Rodney Glassman to pursue other opportunities. What better opportunity could there be than replacing John McCain and being one of the people that helps get a US Senator elected? And to get paid to do so!
Today, just a day after announcing he was replacing his campaign manager, there are reports that Glassman’s lost another member of his staff.
The latest to bail on the Glassman campaign: Kevin Bondelli, the campaign’s new media director.
Bondelli is the fourth person to bail on Glassman since mid-July and, as we mentioned earlier in the month, his departure is reportedly thanks to the way Glassman has been managing the campaign and treating staffers.
Glassman campaign spokeswoman Tina May didn’t immediately return our call this afternoon, but the Arizona Capitol Times is reporting today that “sources close to the campaign” say Bondelli’s leaving for the same reasons the other three left: to paraphrase,
Glassman’s kind of a jerk.
It is hard to sell your soul for income when your candidate is a fraud. Rodney has forbidden his staff from researching whether claims made about him are even true. I assume it is because they are really true, and Glassman does not want the veil lifted.
These sources relayed a litany of complaints about the Glassman campaign, from Glassman berating staffers and volunteers in public, even yelling at them, to Glassman’s having his brother Jeremy play a major role in the campaign (doing little or nothing, they say), and the fact that Glassman and his minions gave Democrats reason to believe he would sink millions into his bid for Senate.
Sources also claim staffers were upset by a homophobic remark the former Tucson city councilman and onetime registered Republican reportedly made about a gay city councilwoman, saying that, “The toughest thing for me to do will be to sit next to an openly gay councilmember.”
This is what has me wondering. If all these Glassman stories are true, and even those paid to support him are bailing on him because they see the real Glassman, what about all these other endorsers out there? What about all the organizations and politicians supporting this Republican in Democrat’s clothing?
Either they are delusional, or they are part of the scam replace one rich Republican with another rich Republican who now has a “D” in front of his name.
Which one is it? Either way, shame on them!
Remember Three Sonorans broke most of these stories first, and claims made here only continue to get verified. Think about that before you call me a liar
