Shaftan rushes to Lonegan’s aide after brush-off kerfuffle

A web video of Steve Lonegan brushing his wife’s hand off his shoulder on Election Night has cyberspace in cheap shot mode, according to Lonegan’s friend, Rick Shaftan, who was fired during the campaign.

“Steve had no idea who was on the stage with him since he cannot see,” Shaftan wrote on Facebook. “Of course no one bothered to call him or Lorraine to ask anything about it.”

Lonegan dumped Shaftan when the latter went on a curse-filled jag with a Talking Points Memo reporter days before Election Day.

The big brush-off can be seen here…
