In a private conversation captured on audiotape, California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown or one of his aides can be heard referring to Republican rival Meg Whitman as a "whore," the Los Angeles Times reported late Thursday.
The exchange, recorded by a voicemail, discussed Whitman cutting a deal to protect law enforcement pensions as the candidates competed for endorsements from police, the L.A. Times said.
In an audio recording available on the L.A. Times blog PolitiCal, Brown can be heard leaving a voice message for Scott Rate, a union official for the Los Angeles Police Protective League.
After asking Rate for the league’s endorsement, Brown says ‘thanks’ and hangs up the phone, but the call doesn’t end.
Instead, the message continues to record and Brown can be heard talking about the situation with his aides.
After Brown discusses his frustration with Whitman potentially cutting a deal for several seconds, another voice appears to interject saying, “What about saying that she’s a whore?”
“Well I’m going to use that,” Brown replies. “It proves you’ve cut a secret deal to protect the pensions.”
The tape was released to the paper by the Los Angeles police union, the newspaper reported.
