Tsk tsk. The DC media is going to have a hard time keeping this about how Dems are upsetting the apple cart in CT. Give Joe's Senate seat to a Republican? I don't think so.
State GOP leaders have asked the Republican seeking to unseat U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman to reconsider his campaign because he used a fake name to gamble at a casino in the 1990s, a newspaper reported.
Alan Schlesinger acknowledged that he had used a bogus name to obtain a card that Foxwoods Resort Casino patrons can use to win rewards. Gov. M. Jodi Rell and Republican State Chairman George Gallo asked him to reconsider running, The Hartford Courant reported.
"I am not going to let this bother me," Schlesinger said. "I am going to continue in the race."
No, he won't. But as many note, this does not help Lieberman's case (Scared of an R takeover? I don't think so).
Meanwhile, remember Katherine Harris?
Update: Harris's office just sent out this e-mail:
(Tampa, Fla.) -- Katherine Harris announced today she has accepted the resignation of her communications director Chris Ingram from her U.S. Senate campaign. My campaign appreciates the effort and energy Chris brought to the job. He served in an important role in my campaign and he did a great job, and I wish him well,” said Harris. “I wish Katherine and the campaign well, and look forward to returning to managing my company, 411 Communications,” Ingram said. Contrary to earlier reports, Harris has only accepted the resignation of Chris Ingram. On Monday, Katherine Harris undergoes surgery for a previously described medical condition. “I look forward to returning to the campaign trail swiftly following my medical procedure,” said Harris.
Let's pay a little more attention to Republican implosions (see Bob Ney) in addition to perseverating over real and perceived Dem disunity. Elections are not held in a vacuum.
[UPDATE]: I don't want to forget Ralph Reed, who may help Dems by winning his Georgia primary for Lt. Gov., thereby convincing brain-dead pundits that primaries are the same as general elections.
