Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Caught In Email Offering to Completely Reverse Her Opposition to Medical Marijuana If a Critic Would Just Retract His Criticism of Her


The guy who leaked the emails says he's doing so because...

Morgan responded about two hours later in his email calling her a "bully.'

"Actions have consequences," Morgan told POLITICO on Thursday. "Her days of pushing people around are over."

So, if I understand this right, this guy Morgan had clashed with DWS a couple of years ago on the medical marijuana initiative he was pushing. He had offered some negative words for DWS -- telling Politico she was "despised" and "an irritant" -- for a recent article.

Politico reached out to DWS to get comment, at which time she told the guy that if he retracted his negative statements about her, she would completely reverse her opposition to medical marijuana and in fact endorse it.


The congresswoman's more recent dispute with Morgan unfolded Wednesday afternoon. POLITICO sent an email at 3:50 p.m. to Wasserman Schultz's office seeking comment on criticisms from Morgan and other medical marijuana advocates. Three minutes later, an adviser replied that she had no comment.

In the meantime, Wasserman Schultz’s office sprung into action. Her team reached out to the campaign manager for the medical marijuana initiative -- Ben Pollara, a top Democratic fundraiser and consultant in Miami -- and offered him a deal.

Pollara, who refused to comment, detailed the offer in an email to Morgan a few hours later, the donor said, with the subject line: "DWS."

"In a tizzy over this politico story. Saying she might be willing to support new amendment. Any chance you’ll retract your statement," Pollara wrote.

Pathetic.
