Several days ago, I noted

Several days ago, I noted that Maryland gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Kennedy Townsend had been forced to fire a consultant who vowed to portray her Republican opponent Bob Ehrlich as a “Nazi” to black voters. I predicted that, while the consultant would go, the tactic would stay. It turns out that I may have been wrong on the first count. If the consultant is to be believed (a big “if” to be sure), Democratic officials asked him to continue working “undercover” for Townsend. The Washington Post reports that the consultant is claiming he was told by the campaign that “the Jewish community is so up in arms that [we] have to get rid of [you]. But we still want you to work undercover and we’ll work it out. We’ll pay you some kind of way.”
