Naming Names

We now know the names of three pollsters — Greg Lloyd, Mike Baselice and Adam Geller — fired by the Trump 2020 campaign after they allegedly leaked internal poll data to the New York Times showing President Trump trailing Joe Biden in key battleground states. Lloyd is a former associate of Kellyanne Conway, Baselice “has been close to Brad Parscale, who is campaign manager for the 2020 effort,” and Geller has previously worked for former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

If somebody hires you to work for them, by God, work for them. The Republican Party has long suffered from a plague of selfish egomaniacs and untrustworthy backstabbers, who get themselves hired on the basis of personal connections — who they were buddies with as College Republicans — and then deliberately betray the trust placed in them. Any GOP operative who leaks damaging information to the media ought to be permanently barred from employment by Republicans.
