Insider Politics: A Girl’s Gotta Eat!
WPRI’s Ted Nesi had
the first tip clued me in (WRNI’s Ian Donnis had it first on his Tip Sheet~apologies Ian!) that former Moderate Gubernatorial Campaign runner Christine Hunsinger (who was a Dem before that as press secretary for Democratic Congressional hopeful Elizabeth Dennigan) will now be an independent as Governor Chafee’s Legislative Director. Nesi remembered that all those months ago Hunsinger said that Chafee was “disingenuous” and “playing politics.” Now I guess she wants to jump in the sandbox with him:
“I am honored that Governor Chafee has given me this tremendous opportunity to serve the people of Rhode Island,” Hunsinger said. “His commitment to turning the state’s economy around, creating and preserving jobs, and getting Rhode Island working again is clear – and I am proud to be joining his administration.”
Funny how a paycheck and lack of other opportunities can change your, er, perspective.
