Brewtown Politico

Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Remember the Republican strategy memo about how Terri Schiavo's case could be exploited by the GOP for political gain? It turns out it was legitimate despite attempts by some conservative talk show hosts, columnists and bloggers to promote the theory that it was forged or drawn up by Democrats.

The memo was developed by Brian Darling, legal counsel to Sen. Mel Martinez (R-FL). Darling has now resigned his position, and Martinez is claiming he didn't know the memo was produced by his office. That's pretty unlikely. As one who has worked as a Senate staffer, I can tell you the legal counsel is one of the top positions in a Senator's office along with chief of staff, and legislative director.

Kos has a good rundown of some of the outrageous claims made by these folks. I'm not holding my breath on any apologies or resignations though.
