Politico’s Andy Barr slams Democrat Gabriel Sherman for his reporting:
A New York Magazine story on Tuesday reporting that Sarah Palin parted ways with staffers Jason Recher and Doug McMarlin “just before” the 2010 election doesn’t exactly hit the mark.
Neither aide was exactly ousted either, and their moving on was expected and not part of a “shuffling” of mid-level staff, as the post on the magazine’s website reported….
Both current and former members of Palin’s circle confirmed that Recher and McMarlin were hired to do advance work for the former Alaska governor ahead of her first book tour for “Going Rogue” and had remained part of her organization to help with political travel ahead of the election….
SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford confirmed that the two left in January and said things were left on good terms.
