And another one bites the dust. At this pace, Thompson will be the first candidate to have a wholesale staff change before he enters the race.
Another aide to Fred Thompson's campaign-in-waiting resigned last night, two sources close to the campaign confirm. Tom Frechette had been effectively serving as campaign manager Tom Collamore's deputy. Collamore was removed from his post Tuesday and given a "senior adviser" role. Like Collamore, Frechhette was said to have chafed under the heavy influence of Thompson's wife, Jeri.
What should really worry the campaign is the lack of control over this story. If there was a mass resignation, it would be a one day bad story. Yet somehow, the resignations have dribbled out over the course of a week, meaning that the bad press has lasted for a week. I don't know much about Thompson's wife Jeri, but I do know this - a good manager would have squelched this story by now.
