Good Call by Carol
Mayoral hopeful Carol Moseley Braun lashed out against Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg on Wednesday in response to a column criticizing the former U.S. senator.
“He is a drunk and a wife beater, and that’s a matter of record. I didn’t make that up. It’s the truth,” Braun said at a news conference called to outline her public safety platform.
“You know that old ‘Give ‘em hell Harry.’ I tell the truth, and they think it’s hell. I’m just going to tell the truth about these things. He is a drunk and a wife beater, and he insulted the entire African-American community in Chicago. And the Sun-Times, particularly based on its demographic . . . ought to do better by Chicagoans than to give this man a continual platform for his divisive rantings in the newspaper.”
