"Anonymous, pissed off source" dropped me a letter in the Freedonian Mailbag today.
The College Democrats met with Harold Ford Jr. at his HQ today. After he spoke to them, he let his asshead little brother speak to the volunteers that showed up.
Asshead is apparently running his campaign out of Harold's HQ (Something to ponder before sending Harold a check) and using his volunteer base as well.
The College Democrats did the right thing (Although perhaps not my favorite thing, which would have consisted of kicking both brothers in the nuts and dumping garbage cans on them as they lay on the ground) and made it clear that they are there to work for Jr. and ONLY Jr.
So keep that in mind if you ever feel the urge to send money to Harold or actually volunteer at his HQ--- You WILL be helping Jake too.
CORRECTION: I am now informed that he did not officially address the crowd, but he worked the crowd. The rest still stands.
If you give money, time, or support to Harold Ford Jr, you are now aiding and abetting his brother.
When I was writing this piece for the River City Mud Bugle, I called the Harold Ford Jr. campaign HQ for comment. After running in circles for a couple of minutes, they gave me an "explanation" so ludicrous that it belongs in The Onion.
“Harold and his brother kind of look alike. Maybe that’s where the confusion is.”
