John Dean speaks to Nevada Democrats

This is one of those stories made possible by the domination of the Republican Party by social conservatives and evangelicals:

The Washoe County Democratic Party is holding a fund raising dinner and the speaker will be … John Dean.

Dean, special counsel to President Nixon and a Watergate conspirator who served time in federal prison for obstruction of justice, has become something of a spokesperson for GOP conservatives distressed by Bush-style conservatives using the Republican Party as a vehicle for their policies. Two of his books, Worse than Watergate and Conservatives Without Conscience, were written along these lines. How he ended up raising money for Nevada Democrats is unknown.

The dinner is at 6 p.m. Sat., Nov. 9. Tickets go for $85 a pop. Information is available at
