Alfonse’s Grudge

Also at this morning’s Crain’s breakfast, Bill Weld took another shot at explaining Al D’Amato’s grudge against him (which reportedly extends, today, to trying to recruit yet another GOPer to run for Governor.)

Weld recalled that when he ran for Senate in 1996, D’Amato — then chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee — called him in to hand over a $750,000 check. He also berated Weld for the fact that Robert Mueller — a Weld protege, now FBI director — was involved in the failed prosecution of the Senator’s brother, Armand.

“If I ever see that expletive Mueller at an expletive fundraiser I’m going to get every expletive dollar of that back out of your hide.”
