McCain Aide Fired for ‘Trashing’ Staff

The post-election bombshells continue: CNN reports that McCain aide Randy Scheunemann was fired from the campaign last week for “trashing” the campaign staff. Campaign manager Rick Davis jettisoned the senior foreign policy adviser, according to CNN, “after determining that he had been in direct contact with journalists spreading ‘disinformation’ about campaign aides, including Nicolle Wallace and other officials” in the final weeks of the campaign. “He was positioning himself with Palin at the expense of John McCain’s campaign message,” said an aide. McCain was “very disappointed by Randy.”
