Just imagine if anyone noticed that former Bain executive Deval Patrick entered the Democratic presidential primaries last month! Instead, progressive activists have taken aim at Pete Buttigieg over his work more than a decade ago consulting for Blue Cross Blue Shield and other corporations while working for McKinsey. They even have a new nickname for Buttigieg, Politico reports:
Hours after Pete Buttigieg released his list of clients at McKinsey, the left already had a nickname teed up for him: “Pete Romney.”
Rule #1: Don’t cooperate. Buttigieg finally caved under pressure from activists for full transparency. Perhaps he assumed that full transparency was all they wanted. If so, Mayor Pete just learned a very important lesson about the hard Left and its tactics.
