Lieberman Fires Staff

Not surprising:
On Wednesday, he filed petitions to run in November as an independent and dismissed his campaign staff because he hadn't been aggressive enough in countering Lamont during the primary. (AP)

I have to wonder who will step up to replace them.

Updat 8:00pm: The Lieberman campaign has announced that Sherry Brown will be the new campaign manager, and Dan Gerstein the new communications director. Both are old Lieberman hands.

In other news, it looks like Diana Urban is withdrawing her bid for the Senate.

does anyone know who got fired? I'm curious if the ex staffers have any interesting thoughts or insights to share.

Maybe Roy O will want to share his insights!

What is Roy doing now? Not much I guess....

Throughout all of the campaign, I have remained good friends with Ken Dagliere. He was a member of Sen. Lieberman’s staff whom I hold in high respect.

He has let me know that he is leaving to enter the Sacred Heart School of Theology in Milwaukee, on his journey to become a priest. He is sponsored by the Palm Beach Diocese in Florida, where he will settle after he completes seminary.

Ken has wanted to do this for quite a while, and I bid him Godspeed I hope we all wish him the best.

Is there a link to the release? I saw the same report on HotLine, but no link there either.

well, the surf season is supposedly quite good in La Jolla these days

Sean Smith will be remembered as the one man since Ronald W. Reagan who could cause Joe Lieberman to lose an election.

Why do Democrats keep losing? They keep hiring the same consultants even though they keep losing races.

These are the same two that brought you the disasterous jomentum presidential campaign, culminating in the three way tie for third place.

Dan is now taking leave from the Suozzi campaign in NY which has been another disaster.

As a Lamont supporter I can't tell you how glad I am to have these two in charge!!

Did Kenny Curran leave? He said he would.

And I almost feel bad for fellow New Haven resident Sean Smith. I'm sure it was Joe, and not he, who was calling the shots. Steinfels, on the other hand, was nothing but a paid LIAR, and I'll be happy when she leaves the state.

And Chuck, you still a Neo-con?? lol.

P.S. Dagliere earned my respect. Best wishes on your new career.

Now that the moveon.org paid bloggers have done their deed, looks like this blog has slowed up.

Sherry Brown has been a Lieberman staffer many years...she is the mother-in-law of Eddie Perez's chief of staff, Matt hennessey ..she is married to Joe Marfuggi who runs riverfront recapture in hartford..a favorite Lieberman organization where he got millions of dollars for them from congress...in essence the Brown family hasnt worked in private enterprise and lives off the government teet.

Louis IV, how about we just tar and feather his loser consultants?

Sherry Brown is the new campaign mgr. Kenny Dags, I imagine, is still part of the campaign.

Curious to see if the Dems support is real or as tacit as it seems?

Why does everyone care about Roy O so much?

I know that Ken Dagliere is leaving to begin his studies towards the priesthood. Best of luck to him!
