Barthwell Update


Last week Nick Gillespie debated deputy drug czar Andrea Barthwell on the O'Reilly Factor.

Since then, Barthwell quit her job, she's shown interest in running for the open Illinois Senate seat on the Republican ticket (that's the slot Mike Ditka just passed up following Jack Ryan's ugly withdrawal), and she's now in the news for allegedly having "made repeated comments about the sexual orientation of a staff member and used a kaleidoscope to make sexually offensive gestures," according to a "hostile workplace memorandum" written by drug policy office staff.
