Notice the lack of media outrage at Al Gore and a top Hillary strategist for not only creating a traffic jam, but using it to suppress the vote, something that they falsely claim Voter ID does.
Manufacturing traffic isn’t a crime when a liberal does it.
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.
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.”
Isn’t that a cute story? It’s also much more serious than anything that Christie allegedly did. This is a traffic jam not as political payback, but to steal an election.
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.
No apologies from Gore.
