Mike Allen’s Politico Playbook is highlighting a must-read story from The New Republic:

If you’re a young person who works in politics or wants to work in politics, this could be the most important Playbook you ever read. In the chaos of a campaign, someone may tempt you to cut a corner or cross a line into something illegal or unethical, and may offer an apparently compelling justification for doing so. An electrifying article in the forthcoming issue of The New Republic shows how costly that can be.

The story, which is excerpted and linked to below, obviously reminds me of the trouble I ran into because I completely understand the problems which arise when you do cut that corner or cross that line.
