Why did Daniel Mongiardo’s campaign kick Diane Brumback out of his northern Kentucky event last night?
I received a blanket email from the campaign about tonight’s event which you can read below. I scheduled a meeting at the site so that I could attend Daniel’s gig after finishing up.
Read this – I mean it’s a damn blanket email to people!
Daniel continued talking and I continued taking notes.
But things go completely downhill when Mongiardo introduces his pollster. The guy is getting ready to show some slide presentation and BAM! That bald-headed finance guy comes over to me AGAIN and says that I have “to stop taking notes immediately.” So I said, “You’re asking me to leave?” And he says, “No, you don’t have to leave but you can’t take notes.” I told him that I was there covering this event but he said that I couldn’t.
So, I gathered my stuff and said, “Fine, I’ll just leave then and you can read about it.”
And out I went!
Now, to say I’m royally pissed off is putting it mildly. To say I will work as hard as I can to make certain Mongiardo is defeated is an understatement. To say that this is exactly what I needed to get fired up about politics again is absolutely the truth!!
What on earth could Daniel Mongiardo have to hide? What was so terrible that it couldn’t be noted by Diane? Are Mongiardo’s internal numbers so terrible that they have to hide them?
