"Worst Person in the World": Tom Feeney's (FL-24) Chief of Staff
In what is practically an endorsement of FL-24 candidate Clint Curtis ;-) Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC's Countdown, awarded the "Worst Person in the World" title to Jason Roe, Tom Feeney's (R-Abramoff) Chief of Staff. Roe's on loan to the Peter Raskam campaign, who's being challenged by Tammy Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran who lost both legs when a rocket-propelled grenade struck the cockpit of the Blackhawk helicopter she was piloting. Here's Keith:
But our winner--we need to clarify a previous worst. We reported that Illinois congressional candidate Peter Roskam had said his opponent Tammy Duckworth wanted to "cut and run from Iraq" even though she lost both her legs there while serving as a helicopter pilot. Jason Row [sic] from the Roskam campaign charged us with intellectual dishonesty because Roskam merely said that the Illinois sixth is "not a cut and run district."
Hey pal, this is about campaigning against a woman who has no legs because they were cut off while she served in Iraq and still being insensitive enough to use the phrase "cut and run." You leave the intellectual to us, we`ll leave the dishonest to you.
Peter Roskam and staffer, Jason Row, today`s "Worst Persons in the World."
