Ed Rollins? Yes, that would be the same Ed Rollins who worked briefly -- a lot of people did -- for flame-out Florida Senate candidate Katherine Harris. More to the point, it's the same Ed Rollins who boasted in 1993 that his client, Christine Todd Whitman, had won the governor's race in New Jersey because the campaign had paid black ministers not to sermonize on behalf of Democratic Gov. Jim Florio and had given people who were supposed to be getting out the vote for Florio some "walking around money" to stay home instead.
