Rangel congressional aide intimidated my supporters with ‘PLEASE CONFIRM!’ email: challenger
But for [Joyce] Johnson, the whole correspondence was inappropriate, and that the gesture, rather than any particular wording Eaton used, was meant to chase away her supporters.
"When you get a call to say please confirm," Johnson explained, "there’s an implication in it that there are some consequences. Otherwise, why do it?"
A spokesman for Rangel declined to comment.
