Dude, Don’t Be Like the DNC Chair and Tick Off the Pot Lobby

The lesson here is that if a politician talks tough and then tries to cut back-room deals, sooner or later, that strategy will backfire. Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is under fire in her home district because of her interaction with the state’s budding marijuana lobby. Wasserman Schultz is considering a run for the Senate and a high-profile supporter of marijuana legalization disparaged the politician. In response, Wasserman Schultz reached out to the man with a back-room deal. Politico reported: “The proposal to Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan was straightforward: retract critical statements he made to a reporter in return for Wasserman Schultz publicly backing his cannabis initiative that she had trashed just months earlier. Morgan declined the offer with a sharp email reply sent to a go-between, who described the congresswoman as being in a ‘tizzy.’ ‘No,’ Morgan responded. ‘She is a bully. I beat bullies up for a living.’” Wasserman Schultz denies the accusation, saying she was simply trying to build coalitions and entertain ideas. But because of this episode, Wasserman Schultz’s reputation – and higher political aspirations – is going up in smoke.
