Collins V. Snowe?

September 21, 2009

I generally don’t buy a lot that is said in “tell-all” books.  Usually, they strike me as a sensational grab to distance oneself from the mistakes they took part in, or didn’t stop when they could have.  They also tend to strike me as a push for some money after serving in roles that don’t usually pay that well.  Whether it’s true or not, I found this leaked tidbit from former Bush speechwriter, Matt Latimer, interesting (via Huffington Post):

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins is fond of sending angry, middle-of-the-night e-mails to staffers because she’s frustrated that her colleague and rival Olympia Snowe gets more and better press. As a result, reports Latimer, she rips through press secretaries like 30-packs at a beer-pong tournament. (A Collins press secretary didn’t respond to a request for comment.)

UPDATE: Just noticed that Maine Politics noted this too.
