Hillary Advisor Created Traffic Jam To Help Gore

From the Daily Caller:

Hillary Clinton adviser started an election-day traffic jam

Patrick Howley | January 10, 2014

Michael Whouley, founding partner of the strategy group tied to Hillary Clinton’s budding 2016 presidential effort, orchestrated a traffic jam to help his client Al Gore win the 2000 New Hampshire primary against Bill Bradley.

Gore campaign manager Bob Shrum wrote in his memoirs about Whouley’s last-minute gambit to use the Gore motorcade to suppress the vote on primary day, as Slate’s David Weigel noted on Wednesday.

“Michael Whouley came up with a last-ditch scheme: Send Gore into areas of southern New Hampshire where there was a lot of Bradley support among upscale voters and commuters who worked across the border in Massachusetts. Many of them cast their ballots late in the day after driving home. Gore’s motorcade — candidate, press, Secret Service, and police — could snarl traffic and keep some of the commuters from ever getting to their polling places or even trying to,” Shrum wrote.

Gore was “irate” at the “massive traffic jam” but then “Gore got the point” after Whouley explained that “they’re mostly Bradley voters.”

And now we can all laugh at this, because it’s just smart politics when it involves Democrats.

Whouley was one of three close officials from the strategy firm the Dewey Square Group who met with Clinton at her Embassy Row house in early summer 2013 to discuss plans for an upcoming presidential effort. Whouley also managed Clinton’s victorious 2008 primary campaign field operation in New Hampshire, eight years after pulling off Gore’s traffic jam in the state.

Whouley was portrayed by actor Denis Leary in the 2008 HBO film “Recount” about the Gore campaign…

New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, a Hillary Clinton fundraiser and Christie’s Democratic successor in the post, is currently investigating the matter involving Christie’s staff."

And the head of the IRS investigation, Barbara Kay Bosserman, is a trial lawyer in the Justice Department who donated more than $6,000 to Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, as well as several hundred dollars to the national Democratic Party.

  1. If it’s a Crime, there’s a Democrat neck deep in it ..

  2. It just goes to show, that liberal republicans are no different than liberal democrats. They both see the public as sheep to be manipulated.

    Now that liberal Chris Christie has gotten a taste of “love” from the democrats, justice department, the media, perhaps he will realize all that “reach-across-the-aisle” crap he did was just a trap to alienate Conservatives, and did nothing to sway democrats to his favor.

    Forget higher office, you blew it long before this non-scandal occurred.
