What I’m Reading: All The President’s Men – 47 in a series – “They assume we have the same sleazy ethics as theirs.”

October 25th, 2019

”Woodward called CRP spokesman Devan Shumway and asked if the poll had been rigged. “When you’re involved in an election, you do what you can,” Shumway replied. “We assumed the other side would do it also. On that assumption, we proceeded. I don’t know if the other side did.” Woodward asked if the other side Shumway was referring to was the North Vietnamese. No, Shumway said, he meant the McGovern forces. Following it down to the end, Woodward called Frank Mankiewicz, McGovern’s former campaign aide. “We didn’t do it,” he said, somewhat incredulously. “It didn’t occur to us, believe me. These guys are something. They assume we have the same sleazy ethics as theirs.””
