Well, duh. But this time, it’s one of her fellow Republicans talking her down.
Every now and then we like to check in on the latest antics surrounding GOP Rep. Jean Schmidt — the Ohio Republican who called Jack Murtha a coward on the House floor. And boy oh boy, her latest doesn’t disappoint.
Schmidt is now enmeshed in a bitter feud with another Ohio Republican, who’s so furious with her that he called her a “lying b—-” and a “despicable person” who would “sell her mother” — and expressly told us we could print that!
The issue? GOP State Rep. Tom Brinkman, who founded an anti-tax government watchdog group, is charging that Schmidt’s House staffers frequently work on her campaign for re-election.
“You can quote me anywhere you like. Jean Schmidt is a lying b—-,” said Brinkman, who lost his primary challenge to her this year by a 58%-40% margin, in an interview with Election Central. “She would sell her mother to promote herself. She is a despicable person. She will go any length possible to win, to get what she wants.”
