Buried in today’s Globe was the news that the Mihos campaign is struggling for cash and has fired their communication director, Kevin Sowryda. According to Sowryda:
A fund-raising appearance last week by Dick Morris, a national Republican consultant who is advising Mihos, fell flat. Two events with Morris, one on Cape Cod and one in Boston, drew sparse crowds
But that’s not the punchline. This is:
Kevin Sowyrda, who has been Mihos’s spokesman and media director since the summer, said he was told yesterday that he has been terminated. Sowyrda said he has not heard directly from Mihos, but that he had heard he was fired from another consultant to the campaign, whom he would not identify.
Sowyrda said the first hint came when his campaign cellphone shut down yesterday.
“This is classic Christy,” Sowyrda said. “Apparently, he has told people on the campaign that I resigned a month ago and have been working pro bono since then, which of course was news to me. However, we all love Christy dearly for this type of eccentricity, because that’s what makes him the very special person that he is.”
