Jerry Brown Calls Meg Whitman a Whore

Jerry Brown or someone in his campaign called Meg Whitman, Brown's Republican opponent for the California governorship, a whore.

The audio comes from a phone call from Brown to the Los Angeles Police Protective League. Brown was asking for Police support for his candidacy. He left a voicemail, but when Brown thought he had ended the call, the voicemail recorded the following conversation. Would love to know who leaked this.
"Do we want to put an ad out? … That I have been warned if I crack down on pensions, I will be — that they'll go to Whitman, and that's where they'll go because they know Whitman will give 'em, will cut them a deal, but I won't," Brown said.
At that point, a voice — either that of Brown or a second person — can be heard saying: "What about saying she's a whore?"
"Well, I'm going to use that," Brown says. "It proves you've cut a secret deal to protect the pensions."
Nice. It appears that the aide, or in my opinion the voice is that of Brown, suggested actually saying Whitman's "a whore," and his boss, Jerry Brown, said he would "use that." Hear it at about the 2 minute marker below. Just heard Martha MacCallum on Fox News say it was Brown's aide using the "whore" word, but I think she's wrong.

Making deals with unions is usually Democrat territory. This time, a union, the police no-less, cut a deal with a Republican and funneled $450,000 to Whitman's campaign. I'm puzzled at the soundness of the "deal," but will say this, if any pension plan is enhanced, it should be that of the police and firefighters.
