Love Note

Back in September, I wrote a post chronicling Gov. Chet Culver’s somewhat contentious visit with The Gazette editorial board. It was the session where he testily asked us, after repeated questions about not calling a special legislative session, “What is it you don’t understand?”

Fast forward to today. The Iowa Progress Project, a conservative group critical of Culver, used an open records request to get its hands on a ton of e-mails sent by the governor’s staff. They found one mentioning me and sent it along.

The September post I mentioned above was  included in a daily packet of press clips e-mailed to Culver’s staff. Culver press aide Troy Price apparently was displeased with my narrative, according to this brief e-mail exchange with former Chief of Staff Patrick Dillon:

Dorman can kiss my ass.  And I hope he sees this email at some point.


Mission accomplished.
