“Lieberman Hijackers” Win HoJo Skirmish
These men — a medical physicist and a poli sci prof — came head to head at a HoJo’s over the future of U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s phony political party. One left. The other recruited five more official “hijackers” to the anti-Joe cause.The occasion was the second organizational meeting of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party, the vehicle created to propel Connecticut’s junior senator to a general election win in 2006 after he lost the Democratic primary to anti-war challenger Ned Lamont. Lieberman created the “party” to have a line on the November ballot. Then he forgot about it.
