Obamas chief of staff Rahmbo once mailed dead fish to a disloyal Democrat pollster!November 7th, 2008 - 5:38 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 7 (ANI): Rahm Emanuel, who has accepted Barack Obamas offer to be his chief of staff at the White House, is better known by his nickname Rahmbo, for once he mailed a dead fish to a Democratic pollster who turned disloyal during a US Congressional race when Bill Clinton ran for his first bid to the Presidency.
Outraged at disloyal Democrats during Clinton’’s first presidential campaign, he stunned dinner companions by rattling off names of the offenders, each time stabbing the restaurant table with a dinner knife and shouting, Dead, reported Fox News.
His reputation is that of a political fighter, and this is an ironic choice for a President-elect who has promised to change Washington , make politics more civil, and govern from the center, said House Republican Leader John Boehner. However, Rahmbo is said to have mellowed over the years, added the report.
Emanuel said in a statement Thursday that he was accepting the job for “one simple reason.” “Like the record amount of voters who cast their ballot over the last month, I want to do everything I can to help deliver the change America needs. We have work to do, and Tuesday Americans sent Washington a clear message — get the job done,” he said and pledged to rise to the occasion at a time when America is piled high with difficulty. (ANI)
