What it is really like to work on a election: campaigns are ecological disaster areas


In order to stay organized, you must throw out materials that have become obsolete -- rap sheets, no-longer usable early voting door hangers, boxes the literature came in, turf notes. Out! Every day.

In order to keep going, everyone must be fed and watered (and soda-ed). We create 4 and 5 and 6 monster trash bags of food-associated garbage, everyday.

In order to stay healthy, we clean the bathrooms of paper towels and other effluvia -- more than once a day.

No wonder landlords aren't thrilled to rent to campaigns. We do what we have to do.
