It was only a matter of time, but the mainstream media picked up on the DNC’s gay drama.
The article largely catches readers up with the suit, but also offers a view of the conflict between Dean, who’s Chairman of the DNC, and Hitchcock’s lawyer, Lynne Bernabei:
…Dean’s infamous short temper was on full display toward the end of the second day of his deposition during a testy exchange with Lynne Bernabei, the plaintiff’s attorney who deposed him.
Bernabei grilled Dean about why, as governor of Vermont, he didn’t hold a public ceremony when he signed the state’s civil union bill into law. “You don’t get to put words in my mouth,” Dean fumed. “If you want the truth and whole truth and nothing but the truth…You have to let me answer your question.”
“You can say anything you want. You are a politician, Mr. Dean,” Bernabei said. (He’s also a doctor, Ms. Bernabei.)
“You are not behaving in a manner which is professionally competent or qualifying,” Dean said, adding, “You are an embarrassment to this profession, counselor.”
“Well, it is not your profession. Thank you,” Bernabei snapped.
“It is my daughter’s profession,” Dean shot back. “I am going to show her this tape so she never behaves like this.”
Who knew Dean had such an inner bitch? We love it!
