Jack O’Dwyer on Gen. McChrystal’s Former PR Guy: ‘They Should Find a Nice Big Job for Him’

PRNewser was trading emails with O’Dwyer’s founder Jack O’Dwyer about Duncan Boothby, the former O’Dwyer’s staffer turned political PR consultant, who resigned from working with Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal last week after the now infamous Rolling Stone profile that brought down the general.

What did O’Dwyer have to say about Boothby?

…he’s laying low for the moment. I think they should find a nice big job for him. He’s the fall guy. Duncan, a neighbor of mine in Greenwich, worked for us several years ago when he was between jobs.

O’Dwyer also pointed to a debate about Boothby on his site, and noted, “Some think it’s his fault and others think he’s a hero.”
