It seems that back in 2008, the Hillary campaign was in deep doo doo and they could not afford the $608,000 needed to finance a Get Out the Vote campaign. No problem. Get one of your closest advisers to introduce the canvassing company to someone willing to foot the bill. I wonder what he was promised.
In 2008, a firm approached the Clinton campaign about the possibility of running a get out the vote campaign for Clinton. The firm, owned by Troy White, a New York marketing executive, called Wytehouse Marketing. Later, a Clinton official, Guy Cecil, notified White that they could not use his services and expressed the fact, he was a fan and hoped they could work together soon. Utrecht, the Clinton campaign attorney, stressed the fact that the Clinton Campaign had turned White down.
