“I shared the top of it with the campaign in an effort to give them an opportunity to fully respond, not to allow them to hurl an incomplete story out there under my name,” McDermott wrote in an email to Roll Call. “Unfortunately, I assumed I was dealing with a professional.”A letter to the editor in today's Kansas City Star provides further support for the idea that Akin's campaign is not being run by professionals:
Now I really have a reason to detest those automated political phone calls. I received a phone call from former Arkansas governor and current Fox News personality Mike Huckabee asking for my support for Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin.
Mr. Akin should be glad he could not hear my unladylike response. You see, I’ll never vote for Mr. Akin despite his calls to my home phone.
I live in Kansas.
Kathyrn BachOf course this is just one letter, but it certainly fits with a pattern of incompetence that permeates every single aspect of his campaign.
