The Examiner’s December 6 edition confirms that Unity08 (the corporation that would like to elect its own U.S. president) garnered the useful services of spokesactor Sam Waterston thanks to social connections:
The Emmy winner said he got on board largely because of his friendship with Gerry Rafshoon, former White House communications director under Jimmy Carter and a member of the Unity08 Founders Council.
Waterston and Rafshoon met on the set of a TV miniseries, with Waterston acting and Rafshoon set up as executive producer.
It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Classic insider politics.
