The conservative-turned-liberal activist David Brock once criticized Hillary Clinton:
Liberal activist David Brock, who is on tour next week to promote his latest book about the “right-wing plot to derail Hillary,” has been one of Hillary Clinton’s most vocal defenders and runs the Clinton-supporting Super PAC Correct the Record. But in his first book on Clinton, The Seduction of Hillary Rodham, published in 1996, he painted an unflattering portrait of the presidential candidate, calling her response to scandals “Nixonian” and warning of her “dangerous character flaws.”
Brock, who was a writer for the conservative American Spectator at the time, still credits his research on the book for turning him into a Clinton supporter. Even after he officially moved to the left, he has continued to defend Seduction, which was criticized by some conservatives for allegedly going too easy on Clinton.
