Editor's Brief

The Right Wing Deep State

July 30, 2019 8:36 a.m.

You can see I’m a big fan of this article Matt Shuham article on Donna Arduin, the itinerant austerity grim reaper who’s been hopping from one state to the next for more than twenty years helping Republican governors slash spending on education, retirement and social services – often in the wake of natural or political disasters. This piece was not connected to what I’m about to mention. It came to us via a tip from TPM Reader BG. But it reminded me to let you know about a related series we’ll be publishing later in 2019.
