Maureen Reagan Denies Reagan Hayakawa Deal

from beyond the grave.

“Sen. S.I. Hayakawa on Wednesday spurned a Reagan administration suggestion that if he drops out of the crowded Republican Senate primary race in California, President Reagan would find him a job.”

The reason that I mention it is that Jon drops it into our comments, below, and if you run the entire quotation through Google, you’ll find that this is the piece of reporting that everyone on the left is hanging their “everyone does it” defense on.

I imagine, though, that there were a lot of journalists asking a lot of questions about the report at the time. Maybe someone like, say, Alan Colmes might set his researchers digging a little in the archives to see what else they might be able to dig up on the story. I doubt it just kind of went away.

    Federal law makes it a crime for anyone “who directly or indirectly promises any employment, position, compensation, contract, appointment, or any other benefit” to someone else “as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity or for the support of or opposition to any candidate or any political party in connection with any general or special election to any political office.”

    I am sure Rahm and others want to experience what I did. Come on bitches, try it.
