Corry Bliss’ time here in Vermont running Brian Dubie’s losing race for governor has followed him to Connecticut. He is there running World Wrestling Entertainment owner Linda McMahon’s senate campaign. Second time senatorial wannabe Linda McMahon can’t be pleased with this recent headline about her campaign manager. Linda McMahon’s Campaign Manager Had a Controversial Past in Vermont
Connecticut’s Hartford Courant picked up on the latest in the continuing Vermont legal battle over alleged illegal coordination between the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) and Dubie’s campaign staff. Bliss is not named in the lawsuit but was questioned about his role. Here is part of what Connecticut voters got to read about Bliss in the Green Mountains:
It’s not the first controversy Bliss became ensnared in during his time in Vermont. Last year, he settled a lawsuit with a developer who had accused him of libeling his character during the 2010 gubernatorial campaign. Bliss and Dubie both wrote letters of apology to settle the case.
Not the kind of thing McMahon may want to read about her manager who is paid $7,500.00 every other week (more than double Dubie campaign pay). And there is this testimonial to Bliss’ particular form of alchemy which will put him in solidly with his new boss.
“Corry Bliss took a candidate that was up 20 points and turned him into a loser by election day,” said Bradford Broyles, a Republican activist from Mendon, a town in the central part of the state, near Killington. “We’re still repairing the damage to the Republican party…If Corey[sic] Bliss runs [McMahon’s campaign] like he did up here, hold on to your seats.”
