Former party chair, Obama ’08 backer, now “independent”

A Des Moines lawyer who served as chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party posted on Facebook last night: “I am a registered independent.” Several “friends” have questioned whether he’s serious, but he hasn’t responded.

Gordon Fischer was Iowa Democratic Party chairman for the 2004 cycle and he was a backer of Obama ’08 during the Caucuses. He had a blog called “Iowa True Blue” which he took down around the time he applied to be a U.S. Attorney.  (Senator Harkin suggested someone else to President Obama, who appointed Harkin’s pick — as is the custom.)
