Ari Fleischer, Ex-Bush Spokesman, Secretly Involved In Komen Disaster
Question for the ages: Why do so many former Bush flunkies simplyrefuse to STAY FLUSHED? Ex-Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer, for example, continues to circle the Beltway bowl as a human resources intern or some such at the Susan G. Komen Foundation. What a mighty non-coincidence, indeed, that a refugee from the colossally failed Bush administration would find himself orbiting yet another organization collapsing upon itself like a stupid and inexplicably pro-life dying star. Marvel at your universe today.
Think Progress reports on Fleischer's head-hunt for someone to clean up messes at Komen:
Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for George W. Bush and prominent right-wing pundit, was secretly involved in the Komen Foundation’s strategy regarding Planned Parenthood. Fleischer personally interviewed candidates for the position of “Senior Vice President for Communications and External Relations” at Komen last December. According to a source with first-hand knowledge, Fleischer drilled prospective candidates during their interviews on how they would handle the controversy about Komen’s relationship with Planned Parenthood.
It's not clear what "controversy" Komen was trying to handle in December but fortunately legions of easily avoidable controversies just became available last week! Perhaps unparalleled strategistician Ari Fleischer could again offer his services?
[Founder Nancy G.] Brinker told affiliates Saturday that they would also be getting help on crisis communications from Ari Fleischer, a former White House press secretary in the George W. Bush administration. Fleischer said Saturday night that he had not been asked but that if he could help, perhaps he would.
