GOP Aides Not Very Helpful

McCain aide pisses off Mormons
"The campaign of Senator John McCain is now apologizing for anti-Mormon remarks made by one of its key organizers in Iowa. According to the Boston Globe, one of McCain's Iowa County Chairman: -Questioned whether Mormons are Christians - Alleged that the LDS Church helps fund Hamas, a terrorist organization - Compared the Mormons treatment of women to that of the Taliban."

Brownback aide pisses them off too
"WASHINGTON -- An aide to GOP presidential candidate Sam Brownback has been reprimanded for sending e-mail to Iowa Republican leaders in an apparent attempt to draw unfavorable scrutiny to rival Mitt Romney's Mormonism."

Giuliani prefers professional pedophile prevaricator
"Giuliani employs his childhood friend Monsignor Alan Placa as a consultant at Giuliani Partners despite a 2003 Suffolk County, N.Y., grand jury report that accuses Placa of sexually abusing children, as well as helping cover up the sexual abuse of children by other priests."

(Oh yeah, and that other guy with the blow.)

Romney aide has cop fetish
"State Police are investigating one of Mitt Romney's top campaign aides for allegedly impersonating a trooper by calling a Wilmington company and threatening to cite the driver of a company van for erratic driving, according to two law enforcement sources familiar with the probe.
In 2004, the Globe reported, Garrity was cited and fined for driving a Crown Victoria with red and blue lights mounted in the grill, a siren, a PA system, and strobe lights; and for having a nightstick and identification showing a State Police patch that read "Official Business."

(And, um, that finance chairman of his.)
