This hit twitter yesterday; Ilhan Omar’s spin doctor, Ben Goldfarb, caught in the emailed act of trying to fix media and pundit coverage of the perennially-scabrous Ilhan Omar:
My God. Props to @bloisolson for sharing.— Nick Solheim (@NickSSolheim) June 13, 2019
From @IlhanMN’s crisis manager Ben Goldfarb:
“Does anyone in the team have a relationship with Blois? Someone should probably reach out to talk off the record and shut it down with him AS WE DO WITH THE STRIB” [emphasis added]
“Someone should probably reach out to talk off the record and shut it down with him as we do with the Strib“.
Not that this is a mystery to anyone, but it’s still a little jarring to see it in black and white from one of the co-conspirators.
The downside, of course – if the DFL does in fact primary Omar, and manages to replace her (doubtful), they’ll only come up with someone worse.
