A Spy reader sent along this new finding from the most recent batch of Hillary Clinton campaign aide John Podesta’s hacked emails with a modest, if indirect Chestertown connection. Sadly, for those who seek more sensational news, there is not much juice to be found in the correspondence between Washington College’s new President, and former FDIC Chair, Sheila Bair and a member of the Clinton campaign staff.
As noted in the summary of the email exchange below, President Bair made it fairly clear that she was not a big fan of the former Treasury Secretary and former president of Harvard University, seeing Summers as part of a “deregulatory cabal” which helped create the Great Recession to take place in 2008.
Summers, before becoming a member of the Obama first term administration cabinet, had earned significant notoriety by losing the confidence of many of the Harvard faculty with his comment that the under-representation of female scientists at elite universities may stem in part from “innate” differences between men and women.
