Wulsin campaign rips on Schmidt
Newsflash - Democrat Victoria Wulsin thinks her likely Republican opponent, Rep. Jean Schmidt, is not as bad as she used to be. Sort of.
Wulsin was in DC today to meet with reporters. Asked if she intended to hammer Schmidt on the congresswoman's much criticized "Cowards cut and run, Marines never do" remark. Wulsin said: "No I don't need to."
Exactly. So when Wulsin was then asked if, in her opinion, Schmidt was on at least slightly better behavior since her "cut and run" remark and allegations of plagiarizing columns.
Wulsin, surprisingly, weighed in: "I terms of personal behavior, I think she is on better behavior. In terms of professional behavior, and listening to people, I think she's gotten worse."
Wulsin's campaign manager, Josh Levin, then pointed reporters to a Politico story in which Schmidt was called a "squatter" for camping out early to nab a good seat for last night's State of the Union speech.
Levin also mentioned a certain story in The Hill about Schmidt's favorite perfume being Shalimar although she wore Giorgio that day because it "fit the mood of the outfit" she was wearing better.
"She continues to do things that perhaps the people of the district might not see as in their best interest," Levin said.
You don't say.
