James Carville appearing at Hillary Clinton fundraiser next week

Here's my James Carville story. I did a bit of volunteering for the Clinton-Gore campaign when I was in high school in '96. Carville came in to rally the troops. Around this time, Carville appeared in some psychedelically confusing Nike ads with baseball star Ken Griffey, Jr. (pepper was involved, I don't know). 

Anyways, some kid asked Carville about Griffey and Carville immediately took off his coat, and his tie, and his shirt — and revealed that he was wearing a Griffey T-shirt underneath. And then he took off the Griffey T-shirt too. His chest was as wide and white as a Destin beach. 

He gave the kid the Griffey shirt, a bit sweaty as I recall, and he said: "Don't ever let anyone tell you I won't give you the shirt off my back." 

I thought that was a good line and try to use it as often as possible.

    The federal criminal information released as part of former lobbyist Rusty Cranford's June 7 guilty plea on bribery charges describes a Person 9 who worked for the nonprofit healthcare provider Preferred Family Healthcare and was associated with Cranford. The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
