Kristin Murphy, Deseret News
I agree completely with the letter by James Watkins about Sen. Orrin Hatch not being re-elected because he is a lifetime, professional politician ("Hatch, lifetime politicians make the Senate a House of Lords," Readers' Forum, June 15). I worked on Hatch's first campaign in 1976. I was a BYU-student intern responsible for gathering information on Frank Moss.
I'm sure he would not remember me after all this time. But, I was particularly asked to look for quotes from Moss that alluded to the benefit of his 18 years experience in the Senate. The campaign writers would then use that information in Hatch's speeches to argue that a new voice was needed for Utah in the U.S. Senate. It is supremely ironic that Hatch is running exactly the same type of campaign that he criticized Moss for 36 years ago. Therefore, I would now say to Hatch, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
