DNC Chair to Donor: I’ll OK Pot for You

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz offered to reverse her position on medical marijuana if a major donor retracted comments criticizing her, according to emails published by Politico on Thursday. In an email to Florida lawyer John Morgan, a member of the Wasserman Schultz team proposed a deal to support Morgan’s medical-marijuana initiative if he recanted a statement blasting her. “No,” Morgan responded to the go-between. “She is a bully. I beat bullies up for a living.” The dispute between the South Florida representative and the donor began last year when Wasserman Schultz criticized Morgan’s cannabis initiative, which failed to pass by a narrow margin. “Actions have consequences,” Morgan told Politico. “Her days of pushing people around are over.”
