Did You Think Katherine Harris Couldn’t Sink Any Further?
Well, think again:
In the U.S. Senate primary, Rep. Katherine Harris has been touting key political endorsements from fellow Republican lawmakers. The problem is, some of them never endorsed her.
Several members of the U.S. House called the Harris campaign to complain Wednesday after the St. Petersburg Times notified them of the endorsements listed on Harris’ Web site. Minutes later, their names were removed.
The list of politicians whose names came down includes Reps. Ginny Brown-Waite of Brooksville, Cliff Stearns of Ocala, Mark Foley of West Palm Beach and Jeff Miller of the Panhandle.
You see, she asked for their hosannas:
Harris’ campaign sent a letter to most House members last week, soliciting their endorsement in writing, which would allow the staff to use their names on literature and the Web site. But those contacted Wednesday said they never sent the letter back.
A natural mistake…
