Staff Notes

The Ferrer campaign’s split with Leonard Joseph, a political aide allied with Bill Lynch who also worked for John Kerry, has some insiders grumbling that Joseph — who left after taking the blame for a screw-up involving a claimed endorsement from Joe Hynes — got a raw deal.

So Joseph’s friends were pleased to see that when John Kerry came to town last night to headline a couple of Ferrer fundraisers, the first person the Senator asked to see was … Joseph. Who, obviously, wasn’t there.

Kerry aides called him, and Kerry was seen leaving the second fundraiser deep in conversation with his, and Freddy’s, former aide.
