Mary Margaret Whipple Now. Mary Margaret Whipple Then.


    On your left, I present Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple today, writing in a mailer (click to “embiggen”) on behalf of the Barbara Favola campaign, regarding Jaime Areizaga-Soto’s duties as her aide in Richmond.

    Now, here’s Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple then (January 27, 2010), on the same topic:

    Finally, this year I am fortunate to have the extra help of Jaime Areizaga-Soto, Esq. as my Policy Advisor. He is an Arlington resident, a former White House Fellow at the U.S. Treasury Department, a graduate of Stanford Law School, active in the Democratic Party, and a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army National Guard. As the Caucus Chair of the Democratic Caucus in the Senate, I coordinate the operations (communications, coordination, and position-making) of the majority Caucus in the Senate. Jaime supports and advises me on legislation and Caucus-related issues.

    Huh? Those are not the same descriptions at all, yet they’re both by Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple about Jaime Areizaga-Soto. Strange. So, which one is it, Senator Whipple? These two descriptions clearly don’t match up, and make it sound like you were FOR Jaime Areizaga-Soto before you were AGAINST him. 🙂
