Debbie Wasserman Schultz got the treatment she is used to giving others. She is currently in a feud with activist-attorney John Morgan, a well known democratic donor. Morgan spent 4 million of his own money towards the legalization of medical marijuana in the state of Florida. The bill won the support of over 58% of Florida voters but needed 60% in order to change the state constitution. Schultz had come out strongly against the ballot initiative. Morgan is planning to bring the initiative back up next election. Morgan has in turn criticized Schultz for denying patients in the state of Florida from something that could ease their pain.
Schultz’s office reached out to Morgan and offered him a deal. If he would stop bad mouthing her, she would come out in favor of legalizing medical marijuana. Proof that Schultz doesn’t give a rat’s patoot for her constituents as long as she comes out ahead. Wasserman has said she is considering running for the senate against Marco Rubio. Imagine those poor Florida voters having to choose between that pair of aces. Ben Pollara, an associate of Morgans sent Morgan this message:
“In a tizzy over this politico story. Saying she might be willing to support new amendment. Any chance you’ll retract your statement.”
Pollara replied (And you will love this):
“She is a bully. I beat bullies up for a living.”
Morgan told a reporter during an interview that Schultz’s opposition to medical marijuana disqualifies her for the nomination:
“A United States senator from the Democratic Party should be in favor of the decriminalization of marijuana as a base test. Debbie is more severe. Her position denies terminally ill and chronically ill people compassion.”
Morgan explained why he blasted Schultz:
“Actions have consequences. Her days of pushing people around are over.”
That made my day.
