Weiner Communications Director Calls Woman “Twat,” “Cunt,” and “Bitch”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:56 pm

Now that’s communicatin’!

Tuesday was an angry day in Weinerland.

The campaign staff awoke to see their former intern, Olivia Nuzzi, on the front cover of the Daily News. Inside the paper was an article bylined by Nuzzi in which she told a rather unflattering tale of her experience working on Anthony Weiner’s mayoral bid.

Now, Team Weiner is firing back. TPM called Weiner’s communications director Barbara Morgan to discuss an unrelated story Tuesday and she went off on a curse-filled rant about Nuzzi, describing her as a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job. Morgan also called Nuzzi a “slutbag,” “twat,” and “cunt” while threatening to sue her.

Oh, my.

Well, it certainly is in keeping with the misogyny on display in Weiner’s “gag you with my cock” sex messages, as well as the utterly classless nature of Weiner and his wife. Maybe this woman will get a raise — or at least a crotch shot sent to her in thanks.

  1. Seriously?

  4. i find it all too easy to believe that these are accurate descriptors of weiner interns

  5. Olivia a/k/a Monica has an intriguing pout don’t you think, happyfeet?

    nk (875f57)

  6. I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again:

    Noo Yawkers are SO sophisticated.

    Whitey Nisson (aa99c0)

  7. BTW. You’ll see pics of a blonde along with articles on this.

    That’s Nuzzi.

    Can’t find any pics of Morgan.

    Thought I’d point this out to remove confusion, as some articles make it seem like the pics are of Morgan and they’re not.

    Either way; kudos to Mr. Weiner for picking two, uh, persons to represent his campaign so well.

    Someone ‘splain to me why this idiot is able to run for Mayor of the largest city in the US?

    (however, if he did win, it would be a torpedo in Bloomberg’s ego as to how smart you have to be to be elected.)

  8. I’m shocked. Shocked, I say. Are the Clinton’s still upset about the comparisons?

    Ghost (996b5a)

  9. I’ve got a pretty good idea what Morgan looks like based on her reaction to Nuzzi’s article.

    Just sayin.

  12. The Wiener campaign must be an elaborate financing scheme for a half-assed soft porn docu-movie. $4 million plus matching funds can buy a lot of naughty talk.

    Bugg (b32862)

  13. she looks like a texas girl kinda

    she got a hooters attitude and a sassy way of lookin atcha don’t she

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  14. There’s nothing that says your campaign is under control, like an obscene rant against an intern,

    narciso (3fec35)

  15. Sort of another example of Alec-Baldwin liberalism, or an off-shoot of the same.

    Mark (938403)

  16. But I guess this is better than Bill-Clinton liberalism. That’s because unlike Barbara Morgan, Clinton reportedly has used the “N” word not in a fit of anger or fury but in casual conversation. During moments when he has expressed disapproval of or unhappiness about a person who just happened to be also black.

    Mark (938403)

  17. i find it all too easy to believe that these are accurate descriptors of weiner interns

    Somehow I think happyfeet is the least likely person to criticize use of these misogynistic terms.

    Patterico (da54d9)

  18. No, I don’t think we’ll find that kind of criticism from happyfeet …

    SPQR (768505)

  19. If that’s accurate quoting, never minding the NSFW language, I’d worry about a “communications director” who sounds like a left-over Valley Girl, with every other word being “like”. I was waiting for her to throw in a “gag me with a spoon”.

    LibraryGryffon (1996ab)

  20. Nuzzi is a fan of the duckface.

    Can’t get past that.

    Patterico (3c248d)

  21. I’m sure the words of the Communications Director were taken out of context……or something. Double Heh!

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  22. If that’s accurate quoting, never minding the NSFW language, I’d worry about a “communications director” who sounds like a left-over Valley Girl, with every other word being “like”. I was waiting for her to throw in a “gag me with a spoon”.

    A spoon is not what they gag you with in Weinerland.

    Patterico (3c248d)

  23. These are exactly the age and the type of folks who ran Obama’s election and re-election hot rooms, staffed the local HQ’s, ran OFA, and stocked the blogs with trolls.

    The article said that most of the Weiner interns and staff signed on in hopes of getting close to Huma which might give them a leg up to join a Hillary campaign staff down the road.

    elissa (861226)

  24. This does not surprise me at all. I used to be a big leftist. I defended Bubba Clinton almost to the end.

    Then I realized what the left really is.

    I was a small part of the left machine, but I can tell you this from being inside: The left hates you and they hate what Americans stand for.

    All they want is absolute power without opposition.

    Why should they think this way, you may ask?

    The answer is simple. I have never met a lefty who thought that anyone on the right was smarter than he or she.

    Ag80 (eb6ffa)

  25. The article itself has little in it for the communications director to get upset about. Either she’s utterly incompetent – most likely – or there is something else about to erupt.

    SPQR (768505)

  26. I used to be a big leftist.

    Your type is interesting to me because it illustrates that political orientation is not necessarily innate or genetic. By contrast, I recall reading about research done on identical twins several years ago, in which it was concluded that among the characteristics inherent to certain people was their politics. I still think that’s a plausible explanation for those humans who fit the description of old geezer leftists, assuming their ideology hasn’t changed since their youth.

  27. Morgan is supposedly the blonde one looking at a weiner in this photo. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SRJ6FHth9tQ/Ubkif0q58OI/AAAAAAAAAgs/kXS_ZURux8k/s400/Barbara+and+Weiner.jpg

    Hell to pay (177ba8)

  28. Even if you throw out the sexting, and the inherent misogyny contained therein, the mere fact that Weiner hired Ms. Nuzzi as his communications director (who in a twist, sounds less mature in her wording than any of Weiner’s co-sexters on their worst day) is more than enough to demonstrate the rank incompetence of the man. If that’s what he thinks a communications director EVER sounds like, try to imagine what he thinks someone sounds like who has a job that actually affects others…

    Redhawke (ea7bd7)

  29. Oops, mixed up the names. Sorry.

    Redhawke (ea7bd7)

  30. If that is indeed Ms. Morgan in the picture that Hell to pay linked to above, then we know two things for certain:

    1) Ms. Morgan is relatively young.
    2) Ms. Morgan is liberal.

    Has anyone else noticed how young liberals seem addicted to using vile and coarse language when trying to make their point? It’s as if they believe that throwing in f*** or c*** or t*** somehow amplifies their message rather than making them look intellectually limited and vulgar.

  33. Other than his dick, what did Huma see in wiener?

    mg (31009b)

  34. This is getting too surreal, like an unfolding reality show no one expected. All that is needed is for Dr. Drew to drop by, with a possible cameo by Jose Canseco to tell us why he told A-Rod yrs ago not to overdue the steroids.

    At the final episode, Canseco can then look into the camera and earnestly proclaim, “I was even right about this guy, boy what a WEENER!”

    Kenneth Simmons (6f8eca)

  35. I suppose it’s too late to start up a “DRAFT RUDY” write-in petition to try and coax Guiliani out of retirement and run again for mayor?

    Kenneth Simmons (6f8eca)

  36. Sure. He can tweet his prostate. The one that put Hillary in the Senate. After he dumps his wife on television.

    If New Yorkers have any sense left, they’ll amend the city charter to give Bloomberg another term even if they have to force him at gunpoint. He’s a micro-managing, borderline obsessive-compulsive paranoid mother hen but he’s head and shoulders above all these other twats.

    Now there’s an intern involved. Which on the surface is very Billary!

    But it turns out the one abusing the intern isn’t even the top guy in the organization. And the abuse was only verbal.

    There’s no DNA on a blue dress. There’s no nothing.

    Weiner, you’re going to have to up your game if you’re going to compare yourself to Billy Jeff. You’re not even in Filner territory, who at least groped actual asses.

    Sammy, I hope you’re not trying to rationalize away or somehow soothe over what makes people like Clinton tick.

    I notice you often struggle with a desire to absolve crummy qualities or foolish aspects of liberals and liberalism. But that’s somewhat understandable since, after all, you’re surrounded by liberalism gone berserk (ie, New York City with all its “champagne socialism,” and probably many of the people in your family).

    BTW, Bill Clinton has been described as using the “N” word (on more than a few occasions) in a casual, carefree manner, such as the way he described a black activist he noticed walking down the street in Little Rock. A speech pattern of his as described by a former high-school girlfriend, who at the time was driving with him in a car when he was Arkansas’s Attorney General. If that was, as you say, calculated on his part, then I guess crass speech is calculated by just about all people in general.

    Clinton reportedly describing Obama condescendingly on at least two occasions (to Ted Kennedy) as someone who previously would have been serving him and others in a restaurant or hotel (ie, as a waiter) at least didn’t have as blatantly a bigoted quality about it.

    Weiner, Spitzer, Filner, Billy Jeff, et al, are disgusting jokes and deserve all the attention they’re getting and more precisely because of it.

    When Code Pink protesters dress up as giant vaginas they are demonstrating in graphic form exactly what liberal men think of women. They’re just life support systems for their reproductive tracts.

    And the reason why this deserves attention is that liberal women agree!

    I don’t know what level of the Democratic party apparatus it was that issued the statement, but an arm of the Democratic party affirmed that they’ve waited a long time for a San Diego mayor with a “progressive” agenda to get elected. And they’re not going to abandon Filner now. So, ladies, you’re just going to have to take one for the team. And the ladies (I’m being generous with the term) are all too happy to agree.

    Ashley Dupre was an atypical liberal woman. She demanded cold hard cash from Spitzer before she’d put out.

    The typical liberal woman, as exemplified by the Time’s Nina Burleigh and now Sydney Leathers, are happy to serve their sexual functions just in gratitude for their men’s voting patterns.

    As the former Time contributor told the WaPo’s Howard Kurtz:

    I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads

    Why wouldn’t Weiner think he can keep sexting dick pics, considering so many liberal women are enthusiastically declaring they’d gladly gag on it as long as he lets them have late term abortions?

    There’s your news story.

    As her 15 minutes of fame rapidly come to a close, this little piggy is spilling it all. The announcement that she’s shooting a porn flick should come by week’s end.

    The girl at the heart of Anthony Weiner’s latest sexting scandal claims to have earned thousands of dollars by having sex with older men and offering ‘dates for dollars,’ MailOnline can reveal.

    I’ve heard Washington DC described as Hollywood for ugly people. After seeing pictures of Anthony Weiner and Sydney Leathers I believe it.

    Actually I am firmly convinced Washington DC needs to be razed and the earth salted so that nothing will ever grow there because of it.

    For the children.

    “In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation. It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize,” said Morgan.

    She never expected to be treated like a Republican.

    Give it a rest, tiffy.

    Which one of the above forced their party to explicitly say that their sexual proclivities were just the price the rank and file had to pay to advance a political cause?

    Because that’s the position of the Democrats.

    Tell us, tiffy, where’s Larry Craig now? I can tell you where he isn’t. He’s not in Sandy Eggo demanding the taxpayers pay for his legal defense against all the suits brought by his victims.

  90. From the twitter —

    Eskimos have roughly 200 words for slutbag.

    That’s because unlike Barbara Morgan, Clinton reportedly has used the “N” word not in a fit of anger or fury but in casual conversation. During moments when he has expressed disapproval of or unhappiness about a person who just happened to be also black.

    Never mind.

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  92. Seriously, tiffy, Filner’s legal position was that groping women was within the bounds of his duties as a “public servant.” Because that’s what you have to argue to get the municipality to pay for your legal defense; that you were acting in an official capacity.

    The bright shining line is that of the two parties, neither of which can prevent pervs from joining, only one has a culture that encourages pervs to think acting on their perversions is part of their duties.

    Steve57 (a65996)

  93. “Which one of the above forced their party to explicitly say that their sexual proclivities were just the price the rank and file had to pay to advance a political cause?”

    I notice you often struggle with a desire to absolve crummy qualities or foolish aspects of liberals and liberalism.

    Not just liberals. Maybe it looks a little bit that way because it’s liberals that other people here mostly demean.

    And actually, it’s not better for Hillary to say the word “nig*” calculatedly. It’s worse.

    She grew up in Illinois, in a Republican family. That word is not natural to her.

    What it was, and is, is picking up any stone ina verbal fight.

    But that’s somewhat understandable since, after all, you’re surrounded by liberalism gone berserk..

    Actually not true really.

    BTW, Bill Clinton has been described as using the “N” word (on more than a few occasions) in a casual, carefree manner, such as the way he described a black activist he noticed walking down the street in Little Rock. A speech pattern of his as described by a former high-school girlfriend, who at the time was driving with him in a car when he was Arkansas’s Attorney General.

    Nothing is casual with Bill Clinton.

    If that was, as you say, calculated on his part, then I guess crass speech is calculated by just about all people in general.

    Not true for everybody, but Harry S Truman, I think, deliberately used curse words in semi-private.

    Clinton reportedly describing Obama condescendingly on at least two occasions (to Ted Kennedy) as someone who previously would have been serving him and others in a restaurant or hotel (ie, as a waiter) at least didn’t have as blatantly a bigoted quality about it.

    The aim was to get whoever he was talking to to not support Obama for president.

  101. “Steve, there is nothing I see that’s at all ‘forcing their party to explicitly say’ anything.”

    tiffy – Except those stories from the local media the MSM is embargoing about Dem officials taking their complaints about Filthy Filner’s sexual harrassment up the party food chain and being told to shut up and endorse him anyway, yeah, there is absolutely nothing. You can find those stories yourself.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  102. Yeh, I see the stories you’re referring to on hotair and theblaze. This is hardly a party-wide narrative, and much less than “forced their party to explicitly say that their sexual proclivities were just the price the rank and file had to pay to advance a political cause” or indicative of “a culture that encourages pervs to think acting on their perversions is part of their duties.”

    tifosa (ac465f)

    That’s a party problem.

  105. “This is hardly a party-wide narrative”

    tiffy – Bless your heart. Absolutely not. This is something that just happened with a no-name former 10-term Congressman from some unknown political party who nobody knows running for mayor of one of the ten largest cities in the U.S.

    When something similar happens with a Republican it is obviously an indictment of the entire party.

  109. According to the aptly named Sydney Leathers, Weiner had something of a foot fetish.

    This is appropriate.

    The liberal believes that women would be barefoot and pregnant if not for them.

    Obviously with their abortion enthusiasm they’ve taken care of the pregnant part.

    So show us your stripper shoes, beeyotches, says the world’s Weiners.

    If you’ve got stripper shoes, babes, you’re not barefoot. So line up at your nearest Organizing For America outlet for your presidential kneepads and show your gratitude.

    Steve57 (a65996)

    Maybe Julia ten yrs ago. She’s gained some weight since then. Seems like a nice person though

    Olivia’s got that preppy Ralph Lauren or Lauren Bush-Lauren, princess Kate thing going for her. That respectable look.

    She should either hook up with a PGA golfer (high end) drive around in Bentleys, or marry into one of the west coast tech gurus, like say, (for an example, not literal, just for an example), she should marry one of Bill Gates kids.

    Has that real respectable “cute” nice girl look. And on the hot side too.

    Julia had it, but she has gained some weight, she’ll have to hit the gym a little bit more.

    Kenneth Simmons (6f8eca)

  120. Out of possible 10, Olivia’s an 8.75. Understated makeup, respectable look. Just enough. For DC world she’s a near 10. For hollywood, about an 8.75. She’d get supporting roles like Julia did but maybe wont gain all that weight like Julia did.

    Oh great, now with her being on the Daily News cover “glamour shot” now all the DCNY pols will be hitting on her to no end.

    Hold out for the best offer, Olivia! Don’t snap up the first one. Make sure he has it. Hold out for a Bentley if not Rolls.

    Be smart. You go for a PGA golfer (preferably one who’s won a major or two) or a tech executive on the west coast.

    You’ll fit right in in Silicon Valley area.

    Democrats and their scandals have coarsened the way we live. Unfortunately, a side effect is that is more and more of our news comes from sources like the National Enquirer and Radar Online.

    The National Enquirer is (or was and probably still is) represneted by the same law firm that reprsented Bill Clinton. The Monica Lewinsky was supposed to be destroyed but apparently somebody made and kept a copy. The only people who knew would probably have been violating legal ethics if they told anyone.

    Bill and Hillary Clinton must be really desperate to get attention away from Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.

  131. 95% chance this leak came from or in consultation with Bill Clinton.

    True, maybe there was some could be some money and interest right now, but who would have the supposedly destroyed all copies of tape?

    And Clinton’s law firm would have to be involved, because it is also the National Enquirer’s law firm – in fact the same lawyer. (or they used to have the same lawyer)

    http://www.wc.com/dkendall

    He began representing President and Mrs. Clinton in November 1993, in what was ostensibly a small savings and loan matter involving Whitewater Development Company, Inc. He went on to represent the Clintons in a variety of matters, including Independent Counsel, Senate, House of Representatives, FDIC, RTC, and bar counsel investigations, civil litigation, and the 1998-99 impeachment proceedings, and currently represents them in miscellaneous civil matters.

    He has represented a number of individual and corporate media clients over the years, defending libel, privacy invasion, and copyright suits, fighting subpoenas to news gatherers, and prosecuting FOIA actions (arguing Department of State v. Washington Post Co., 456 U.S. 595 (1982) in the Supreme Court). His clients have included The Washington Post, Newsweek, National Enquirer (where he supervised prepublication copy review for over a decade and a half), Playboy, Discovery Communications, U.S. Medicine, National Review, local television stations, and individual writers and journalists. He represented The Post at trial and on appeal in a marathon libel suit brought by the President of Mobil Oil and his son.

  132. Williams and Connolly LLP partner David E. Kendall…

    currently represents them [Bill and Hillary Clinton] in miscellaneous civil matters.

    At the National Enquirer, he supervised prepublication copy review for over a decade and a half

    The National Enquirer gets leaked (indirectly I guess) the Monica Lewinsky tape.

    Coincidence?

    The big headline at the National Enquirer this week is about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky AND NOT ANTHONY WEINER who is moved all the way down to the bottom of the front page, definitely second billing.

    http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/exclusive-cover-story-whos-crazier-pervy-pol-weiner-or-his-sexy-texter

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  139. Sammy,

    I don’t think the National Enquirer URL is strange. The National Enquirer link is to a story about Weiner so it has a URL about Weiner, but you can see the cover of this week’s National Enquirer story about a Clinton-Lewinsky sex tape. I don’t think the Enquirer has posted the Lewinsky story online yet, probably because it delays the online version so people will buy the print version.

    At most, I think the National Enquirer is marketing its print version by placing the cover on the page with the Weiner story. It makes sense because people who are interested in the Weiner sex scandal story might also be interested in a Clinton sex scandal.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  140. Is the “Recent Comments” column Safe For Work?

    askeptic (b8ab92)

  141. The Enquirer is somewhat reliable, then again for every correct surmise as with Edwards it deals in unsupportable trash. and Clinton’s former attorney is counsel so caveat emptor

    narciso (3fec35)

  142. I think this is Clinton’s current attorney (unless his bio page is out of date) He’s former counsel to the National Enquirer. I don’t know if maybe the National Enquirer now has a different main law firm, but they’d still have to work together.

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  143. This makes sense to me: Was Weiner for Mayor devised to distance Hillary and Huma from Weiner’s sexcapades before 2016?

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  144. So why put a Hillary loyalist, Kedem, to run the thing.

    narciso (3fec35)

  145. Comment by DRJ (a83b8b) — 7/31/2013 @ 3:40 pm

    I don’t think the National Enquirer URL is strange. The National Enquirer link is to a story about Weiner so it has a URL about Weiner,

    It’s not strange – it just indicates that it started out only or mainly about Weiner.

    This link is not to a story about Weiner – but to the front cover, and that’s how they titled the URL originally.

    Notice the link starts:

    http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/exclusive-cover-story….

    The link is to the cover story, and then it gives the cover story a title for purposes of creating an URL just for that week’s issue. But the link is to the cover.

    When blog posts or web pages are edited, and the title changed, the original URL usually remains because there are links embedded elsewhere on the site.

    That the story – actually a teaser – that is on the same page is about Weiner, and not Lewinsky, and there is nothing about that at all is further proof that the Lewinsky story came in later, and pushed the Weiner story down the page.

    There could have been a teaser about the tape.

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  146. I disagree the link is to the cover of the National Enquirer. It is a link to an article about Anthony Weiner and his sexting partner. The cover is an advertisement.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  147. I think indeed it is possible that part of the purpose here was to make the Weiner story old news, but it failed because there is now new news.

    If there had been no new news, then Weiner would have run for Mayor without all this being brought up too much, and in discussing Weiner it would be mentioned he had run for mayor.

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  148. Although Weiner was likely to make the runoff, he was not likely to win the runoff. Talk about Weiner being the front runner just misunderstands things.

    In New York City since after 1969, there is a runoff for the 3 citywide positions between the two top finishers positions if no candidate gets at least 40$ in the primary.

    That can be in the 20s, and there was one election where the top 4 finishers all got around 16%

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  149. How many people realize that the Anthony Weiner/Huma Abedin press conference took place….

    …on Monica Lewinsky’s 40th birthday?

  150. So why put a Hillary loyalist, Kedem, to run the thing.

    Because they needed someone loyal to Hillary to run Weiner’s campaign? Someone who would keep Hillary’s interests in mind and whose resignation would distance Hillary from Weiner if his campaign crashed and burned?

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  151. so many similarities…

    the act that Monica Lewinsky favored Clinton with became known as a “Lewinsky”…

    the act that Anthony Weiner favored on-line chat “friends” with became known as a “Weiner Wag”…

    and the similarities don’t end there!

    I disagree the link is to the cover of the National Enquirer. It is a link to an article about Anthony Weiner and his sexting partner. The cover is an advertisement.

    Maybe, if the other articles also have URLS. I don’t know.

    But what you see is not an article but a teaser. It finishes:

    As always, The ENQUIRER has ALL the juicy details about the salacious scandal and the woman behind it. This is one story you definitely won’t want to miss. So pick up a copy of our latest issue – on newsstands now! /blockquote> This is no article at all. It’s something to try to get you interested in reading the article about Weiner and Sydney Lethers.

    I reasoned that the link is principally to the cover. Otherwise mention of the cover wouldn’t be at the start of the URL. The main Enquirer page http://www.nationalenquirer.com/ seems to show that the link is intended for the cover – the other front aren’t featured at all. This has to be a late change to the front cover.

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  153. Anyway, here are other URLS like that one: (courtesy of Google)

    http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/exclusive-cover-story-paula-deen-its-worse-anyone-thought

    http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/exclusive-cover-story-kates-billion-dollar-baby-boy

    http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/exclusive-cover-story-tom-katie-600-million-divorce

    I see that usually the exclusive is not the main cover story.

    It could be this is always the first story to be selected for the front page.

    In the Weiner case even the word exclusive disappeared from the cover. That also happened with the royal baby.

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  154. Remember that Monica was shopping around for a new tell all book deal last Fall and the price was rumored to be in the $12 million range. No word on if or when the book would be coming out so the new telephone tape could certainly be part of a promo for that.

  155. Comment by Colonel Haiku (40723a) — 7/31/2013 @ 7:42 pm

    on the grassy knoll?

    Clinton through a spokesman made a mysterious reference to not being connected to the assassination of John F. Kennedy in February, 1992. (trying to say the story by Mike McAlary about BCCI was just as ridiculous) So of course that triggered my interest.

    No, the Clinton connection is like this:

    Friend of Bill David Edwards was an aide to the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Texas Democratic Party, a Dallas lawyer in the oil business named Eugene Locke who was the old college roommate of Texas Governor John Connally.

    (David Edwards is supposed to have become acquainted with Bill Clinton in 1968)

    What I don’t know is if the period of time when David Edwards worked for Eugene Locke encompassed November, 1963, because that’s not in the 1986 book Off the Books: Citibank and the World’s Biggest Money Game

    http://www.amazon.com/Off-Books-Citibank-Worlds-Biggest/dp/0688048811/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375326710&sr=8-1&keywords=Off+the+Books%3A+Citibank+and+the+World%27s+Biggest+Money+Game

    That book is really all about (and only about) Little Rock investment banker David Edwards. And it mentions his close friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton (which you can find out other places as well.)

    Google books will show you:

    http://www.google.com/search?tbm=bks&hl=en&q=Off+the+Books+citibank+%22david+Edwards%22+%22eugene+Locke%22

    homas Edwards’s second son, David senior, became an engineer with the Douglas Aircraft Company. … liked the action and became close to the chairman of the executive committee of the Texas Democrats, Dallas attorney Eugene Locke. … In 1962, when David first went to work for him, Locke was..

    So he went to work for him in 1962.

    When did he leave?

    The book doesn’t say.

    Sammy Finkelman (da8ac2)

  156. The answer might be in the back issues of some Arkansas newspapers (way back)

    Because they needed someone loyal to Hillary to run Weiner’s campaign? Someone who would keep Hillary’s interests in mind and whose resignation would distance Hillary from Weiner if his campaign crashed and burned?

    Not for the latter reason, that is, to quit, because they wouldn’t really have any reason to expect that, but to make sure Weiner didn’t say anything bad about them – that nothing impacted negatuvely on the Clintons.

    All the people even giving contributions are not all that closely connected to the Clintons, so there was an attempt not to get too closely tied to him.

    It does look like an attempt to rehabilitate Weiner – and it was speculated, there wasn’t any intention necessarily to elect him – just running and avoiding this issue, at least in retrospect, would be enough to considerably remove the stigma from him.

    That was, of course before Weiner scandal, the sequel.

  160. As daleyrocks mentioned in comment 156, the Lewinsky story may be on its way back into the national dialogue — especially if she has tapes. Could the Clintons be using Weiner to distract the media from that story? It sounds like something Obama would do but I feel sure the Clintons have learned a few tricks from him.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  161. DRJ, the Clinton machine is far sharper than the bullies from Chicago. And the Clintons know about that Chicago machine. Recall how Mr. Obama won his first two elections—dirty tricks.

    I would like to believe that this is all an attempt to put two scorpions in a scandal filled binder (to coin a phrase), but that gives the Right too much credit.

    the Lewinsky story may be on its way back into the national dialogue — especially if she has tapes. Could the Clintons be using Weiner to distract the media from that story?

    One question is, who wanted the tape destroyed?

    But in any case this doesn’t add anything to the story. The whole thing was covered in great detail in the Starr Report.

    What’s hurting the Clintons now, is, or was, Huma Abedin defending Anthony Weiner, which is like a farcical version of what Hillary did, and makes people think about that. And the idea of the whole thing being a repeat and them supporting any kind of Weiner denial of the truth is also bad for them.

    It’s the Lewinsky tape – which goes back to the original scandal and reflects badly on Bill Clinton, not Hillary, that could be a distraction from the way the weiner case is affecting the Clintons.

    Sammy Finkelman (033fec)

  164. Anthony calling all the campaign interns “Monica” was about as big a slap in the face to the Clintons–both of them–as one can imagine. Whether he was merely trying to be cute, or purposely suggesting “hey Bill was a horn dog too, so what’s the big deal here?” he has dredged up something from the past that the Clintons seriously wanted buried and forgotten.

    elissa (4594f1)

  165. “reflects badly on Bill Clinton, not Hillary”

    Disagree. Hillary’s invention of a vast right wing conspiracy, the sudden appearance of the Rose Law Firm billing records, recall problems during depositions, flight of campaign contributors and witnesses overseas, all serve to remind potential voters of Hillary’s only passing acquaintance with truth telling while fresher (phony) scandals like Benghazi and the suppression of State Department IG reports just reinforce established patterns of behavior.

  171. The National Enquirer said (I only saw indirect quotes about this – I don’t know where you can find a link to the National Enquirer itself) saying this) that the copy of the tape was surreptitiously made by someone hired as a cleaner by people close to Lewinsky.

    Well, that sounds very similar to the origin of some other recordings of benefit to Democrats, like the Romney 47% tape recently. And not too much earlier back around then we had the couple eavesdropping on a cellphone call that included Newt Gingrich. And remember Mitch McConnell recently also.

    OK, so it didn’t come from Monica Lewinsky.

    “People close to Lewinsky” probably means her mother and step-father, R. Peter Strauss. She kept the dress there, so she probably kept the tape there. This was a tape Monica Lewinsky made in November, 1997 when she was trying to get Bill Clinton to be with her and je was avoiding seeing her and had for a long time, but he also didn’t want to let her go, because then she might talk.

    This means the copy was made by a private detective agency, probably paid by his lawyers, although there might be some insulation there,, but the money probably ultimately came from his legal defense fund.

    It’s probably Clinton, or somebody close to him, who had custody of the illegally obtained tape all this time.

    Anyway the National Enquirer definitely says that it didn’t come from Monica Lewinsky or someone acting on her behalf.

    Sammy Finkelman (4ca285)

  172. This copying of the tape might have been done rather early on, (not later as the National Enquirer implies) because that’s the point in time when Clinton might have been interested in getting a copy.

    Clinton was secretly getting information about the investigation illegally.

    I remember reading his testimony and saw how in one place Clinton was about to say something about how Monica Lewinsky had defined sex and then stopped himself.

    I think he stopped himself because he realized he hadn’t legally obtained any information about her testimony and he wasn’t supposed to know the thing that Monica Lewinsky had sdaid that he was going to cite.

    He knew it only because of spies, the biggest of whom, of course, was probably former Senate Watergate Committee majority counsel Samuel Dash, whom Kenneth Starr had taken on as an ethics counselor who was being told everything.

    Now it is important to know that there were some attempts to frame Richard Nixon, and Hillary Clinton was involved, although she worked for the House Judiciary Committee.

    I think she (as a fill-in, not officially her job) made some transcripts of the tapes – John Doar actually took a trip out to Arkansas with some tapes where she and Bill Clinton were staying and she prepared some transcript there – allegedly it was a rush job with bobiody else available to do it)

    Hillary Clinton probably was the one who invented the words “I want you all to stonewall it, let them plead the Fifth Amendment, cover up, or anything else” and put them in Richard Nixon’s mouth.

    That’s my suspicion, but what she definitely did is create a faulty legal analysis about impeachment.

    I don’t think she or Bill Clinton have ever said what tape she transcribed. The Committee would not let anyone stop and start the tape but they played through when anyone wanted to listen or make tramscripts.

    I’m trying to explain why Samuel Dash would have been a spy for the Clintons.

    A paralyzed Arkansas man woke up to the horrific sight of his mid-section covered in blood, only to realize that his new puppy had chewed off one of his testicles, police said.

    The 39-year-old Trumann man, who was not identified, is paralyzed from the waist down, and he had recently adopted a “small, white, fluffy” dog in hopes of gaining a new friend, KAIT8 reported. But he woke up Monday morning in excruciating pain and found his new pet between his legs.

    When the man looked further, according to the report, he noticed that “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.”

    Sammy – What I don’t understand is your theory of why the Clinton’s want to release a Monica phone sex tape now.

    What’s really hurting the Clintons right now is the comparisons of Huma to Hillary – and the other way of Hillary to Huma!

    It’s also not a Monica phone sex tape, but tape for the phone by Monica about sex. It says nthing about Hillary – nothing about what she did or said then comes up, and it’s been coming up a little bit now (comparisons of Stand by Your Man)

    It only deals with the original underlying offense, and even at that it doesn’t make Bill look so bad. It’s Monica here who pursuing him, not the other way around.

    Perhaps the dog didn’t receive the government mandated training about not eating testicles.

    That, in a nutshell, is Bob Filner’s argument about why the city of Sandy Eggo should pay his legal bills. Like the testicle eating dog, how was he to know that groping women’s lady parts was wrong unless the gub’mint introduced him to that fact?

    George de Mohrenschildt was a petroleum geologist. Eugene Locke was a Dallas lawyer involved in the oil business. I see in Wikipedia they give his dates as 1918-1972 and say he died after being in a coma for 9 months after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.

    If this was a conspiracy, the conspirators had thought about the possibility of Oswald talking and they had lined up a lawyer for him in advance (without him knowing about it) – a former New York State Assemblyman by the name of Mark Lane.

    She continues her compassionate analysis, and it suddenly strikes Her – what better way to get sympathy than to remind folk of how loyal and compassionate She was – and then She can segué in a bunch of different directions, potentially including losing the deadweight (who cannot complain in any way lest he find himself Bobbitted, turned into a self-humidor, and Fosterized, ostensibly at his own hands, of course …

    Comment by daleyrocks (bf33e9) — 8/1/2013 @ 12:49 pm

    Sammy – OK – And put Bill/Hillary/Monica stories on the front page? And this helps how?

    Well, actually only the front page of the National Enquirer. The New York Post and the Daily News headlines today are about Simon Cowell.

    It’s one of several stories in the New York post on page 8 – and there are other Clinton leaks there – Weiner’s press aide simply was under a lot of pressure – and about the new People magazine story about Huma – saying she considered divorce – she has a strong moral character – she thought abouyt the baby – she knows she went too far in defense of Anthony Weiner.

    There are also two columns on ppage 25 – one about Filner and Spitzer and also Weiner (the therapy dodge) and one by Seth Lipsky of the New York Sun. One person, publisher of the Roverdae Review, (I take it more conservative) has given up on Weiner and said he would vote for Bill Thompson.

    The New York Daily News doesn’t seem to have an Anthony Weiner story today – just Monica Lewinsky on page 8 and how it is bad news for Hillary Clinton – part of the Clinton leak is that this is bad news for Hillary, but it’s good news or better than the alternative.

    And there’s a New York City mayoral race story on page 12: It’s between Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson for second place. de Blasio accuses Thompson of trying to have it both ways. Thompson He spoke about stop and frisk but he is still on record opposing the two bills Mayor Bloomberg vetoed.

    The story even has a Sal Albanese tweet:

    I disagree with @BillThompsonNYC’s approach to public safety. But, then again, so does Bill Thompson.

    Somewhere I read that Al Sharpton had threatened to endorse de Blasio and Harry Belafonte the other day endorsed de Blasio.

    There is a small Weiner story in the Daily News – he backs Morgan, and she still works for the campaign. (This is not a story that reflects anything on Huma.)

    The Daily News also editorializes about the $43,100 Weiner paid a private investiative in 2011. Weiner says or implies this was all later.

    Of course Weiner did not know how the picture got out there. He knew it was his but he didn’t know how it got out there. Nobody has come up with any logical explanation of how Weiner could have made a simple mistake or why he would publicly tweet a link. It clearly was a yfrog bug.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  201. Huma by the way has taken a temporary leave of absence of working for Hillary. She may not be showing up with weiner but she’s not distancing herself either. A tightrope?

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  202. “It’s also not a Monica phone sex tape, but tape for the phone by Monica about sex.”

    Daleyrocks: English translation please.

    A phone sex tape would be a tape of them having phone sex. But this is a tape – possibly intended to be left on his answering machine – or maybe delivered to him – delivery may have been a problem – where Monica Lewinsky requests a sexual encounter.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  203. The best of Anthony Weiner (Seth Lipsky column in the New York Post August 1, 2013:)

    It looks like Anthony Weiner’s race for mayor is just about run. Whether he’ll drop out or get voted out is unclear….The Clintons’ distancing themselves from their erstwhile friend and political ally is one of the most appalling stories in this scandal. It’s hard to think of a purer hypocrisy than that displayed by those trying to draw distinctions between Huma’s loyalty to her husband and Hillary’s to hers.

    All the more so because the Clintons represent, at least in theory, what passes these days for the conservative wing of the Democratic Party.

    No doubt that’s thin gruel, and Weiner — apart from his sex scandal — can say incredibly dumb things, such as likening the stop-and-frisk campaign to the pre-war Nazis. But he would have been, or could have been, better than the other Democrats.

    See what is in italics and boldface. That’s the problem. Hillary needed to draw distinctions but that also makes her look bad.

  204. Enough I guess about this.

  205. The City of San Diego has refuted Filner’s claim that this mandatory training was nixed by them. They counter the training was cancelled multiple times by Filner. The reason Filner gave was that his office didn’t have time. He cancelled the training for his entire office except for the benefits portion as workers could not begin receiving benefits until the class was taken. The president is supposed to visit Camp Pendleton on the same day that Filner is to be out. I haven’t had time to review today’s Bagdhad Bob Comedy Hour but as of yesterday, this administration has refused to comment about this mess. I’m wondering what’s going to go down next week. I haven’t seen word one in the media about John Kerry being on the yacht since his wife went to the hospital straight from their vacation home.
