Gerry's Chutzpah

In 1992, I contributed $10 to Ferraro's senate campaign. Big mistake. Ferraro's people called me more times over the next many months than a telemarketer trying to get me to extend my auto warranty. Not only did I get call after call to make additional contributions to her campaign, I actually got calls asking me to help retire her campaign debt so she could more plausibly qualify for a plum job in the Clinton Administration. It would not have surprised me to be asked to contribute to help her build a deck off her kitchen. Shameless--which is probably why she gets along so well with the First Family of Chappaqua.
