Eliot’s Spitzer‘s ex-girlfriend is Pete Buttigieg‘s swearing aide Lis Smith. Read all about her Type A political operative style in a new political profile by David Freedlander: “Lis Smith bursts through the doors of a marbled hotel bar in Brooklyn wearing oversized Anna Wintour sunglasses, a faux-fur lined coat and impossibly thin and tall high heels. She’s on her phone talking to another Buttigieg aide. She puts the word fuck through every part of speech the word can be bent into: noun, pronoun, gerund, verb, term of endearment, sobriquet, epithet, honorific. She is practically shaking with excess energy. I tell her that I have been calling around to former co-workers and associates, trying to get a sense of how she operates. “How badly, she asks me, “are you trying to fuck me over right now?” This story is well worth your time.
