Sen. Tim Griffin? UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2008 at 1:36 PM

Surely not.

He'll talk about union busting. Somebody on the other side might talk about caging and the corrupt Bush administration's perversion of the Justice Department, using the likes of Griffin as a tool. Talking Points Memo sticks in the knife:

Griffin has a long trck record as a partisan political knife-fighter. He has been accused of participating in a scheme to cage black voters in Florida in 2004, and was paid by the RNC to dig up dirt on both John Kerry in 2004 and Barack Obama this year.

After leaving the interim U.S. Attorney job last year, a tearful Griffin said public service was "not worth it" and that he had no plans to return to politics.

He appears to have reconsidered. And as someone who, the evidence suggests, consistently puts partisan advantage over the public interest, Griffin should fit right in with his Senate GOP colleagues if he wins the seat

UPDATE: Word filters in from a reliable source that you can probably scotch that rumor about a Stanley Reed candidacy for Lincoln's Senate seat. I also hear John Brummett has some old-school real reporting on this and related topics tomorrow.
