This is the latest in a series.
Stafford is now Chief Strategerist for Rand Paul for Senate.
His failures in ’16 were blamed on the Iowa Political Director– a true believer who remains loyal even after unfairly getting thrown under the bus.
Campaign hierarchy not withstanding, everyone– including the campaign manager– answers to Stafford, by virtue of his close personal friendship with Rand.

Mid Level Staffer that whined about iPads
This was some Petyr Baelish in Game of Thrones type shit.
