In a telephone interview, Farber told me he often speaks from personal experiences.
“I was writing about something that affected me. My sister-in-law’s death had a huge impact and I am trying to say that it is important,” he said.
“I would not say I am using it for political purposes.”
That’s a relief — because this is a cautionary tale.
The last thing we need in this election is for aspiring politicians to take the personal tragedy of the death of a young wife and mother and try to use it for their own political gain.Something (her withering sarcasm, perhaps?) tells me Christina is dubious.
