In last week's CL, McCord said he resigned as Bromell-Tinubu's campaign manager; the candidate herself couldn't be reached for comment.
But after CL went to press, Bromell-Tinubu called to say that, in fact, she had fired McCord.
Bromell-Tinubu says she had planned to meet with McCord on Wednesday, April 11, to limit his areas of responsibilities. McCord wouldn't hear of it, she says, so she decided to let him go.
"He was in over his head," Bromell-Tinubu says.
McCord still insists he resigned, along with other campaign workers. He says it is Bromell-Tinubu who is in over her head.
Bromell-Tinubu, who's raised only a fraction of the money her two main opponents have raised, says her campaign is ready to implement a new fund-raising formula. That strategy will look for small contributions at the street level instead of $1,000 donations from fat cats and corporate interests.
"We haven't had success, and maybe that's a good thing," Bromell-Tinubu says.
McCord says the less-traditional strategy already was put in place by a campaign consultant. It never got off the ground, and he doesn't think anything will change.
"It's all rhetoric -- good starts, no follow-through," McCord says.
