Flashermac Posted March 27, 2011 Report Share Posted March 27, 2011 From what I remember, she was virtually forced on Mondale. That made him look even whimpier, since he couldn't even choose his own running mate. << At the outset the "Ferraro factor" brought glamour and energy to Mondale's rather staged, lacklustre image and plodding campaign. Shortly after the convention, however, controversy erupted about her personal finances. Her reputation was damaged by revelations of tax avoidance, shady business dealings, and possible Mafia connections of her husband, John Zaccaro. There were also allegations that Ferraro herself had been involved in financial impropriety in respect of her 1978 campaign funds. The ensuing scandal doomed the Mondale â€” Ferraro ticket. >> Oxford Dictionary of Political Biography: Geraldine Anne Ferraro Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
