Tim Griffin's ordeal -- UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Jun 15, 2007 at 10:00 PM

The Arkansas Leader on Tim Griffin's "touching and seemingly earnest regret" about his ordeal of public service:

We wanted to ask, “What ordeal?” It was Bud Cummins who was fired and accused of laziness and underperforming by leaders of his party. A BBC journalist had reported in 2004 on Griffin’s “caging” of voters in Florida, which resulted in some voters being disenfranchised, but that was it.

But it was a strange lament for a man whose most prominent public duties were to dig up dirt to destroy men and women in public life.

UPDATE: Brummett's Saturday column raises the suspicion -- as many others have -- that the recent White House slur on predecessor Bud Cummins' work habits came from Griffin. Who else would the White House have talked to to form such an impression? Yes, public service is a bitch when there are people out there who will do ANYTHING to advance their own political cause.
