However, in the comment section, a poster indicates that the Webb campaign has been calling women from those days, which is reminiscent of Clinton's campaign in 1992 fighting "bimbo eruptions. From BVBL's comment section:
This “Harrington Issue” has become quite an incident for concern. Many of Harrington’s classmates from the Academy, mainly women, have received calls from Joe Cato, USNA ‘80, and others from the Webb Campaigns Damage Controllers. The Webb folks, are quite concerned, as well they should be, that Webb’s tainted history will destroy his campaign.
It would be interesting to know if Joe Cato has contacted Harrington, would it not?
So, first question, is there a person named Joe Cato working for the Webb campaign? If so, does he deny calling classmates and pressuring them not to talk about Webb?
It's one thing to say that old stories are old stories -- we've wasted way too much time discussing what people said and didn't say when they were in college, especially when we have a 20-year public record indicating the opposite.
But any time an active campaign is trying to call people and keep them from talking, that is something that is of concern TODAY, because it indicates the current character of the candidate.
I've already taken shots at Webb for not controlling his own campaign as they launch tired attacks against his opponent while he pretends to be uninvolved. This is worse, if true.
