White House Letter; An Outspoken Conservative Loses His Place at the Table – The Archive – The New York Times

Mr. Bartlett, 54, the author of a syndicated newspaper column and articles in academic journals, was dismissed in October as a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis, a research group based in Dallas. In the interview, Mr. Bartlett said he had been fired because his increasingly critical comments about Mr. Bush, in his column, in his book and in other publications, had hampered the ability of the research institution to raise money among Republican donors.He also provided a copy of an e-mail message that he said was sent to him in August 2004 by Jeanette Goodman, the vice president of the research institution. ”100K is off the table if you do another ‘dump Cheney’ column and 65K donor is having a rebuttal done, in a national magazine, to your attack on the fair tax people so that 65K may be gone also,” Ms. Goodman wrote about one of Mr. Bartlett’s columns about the vice president. ”Do you have any ideas on where I could raise that amount quickly?”John C. Goodman, the president of the organization and Ms. Goodman’s husband, said in a telephone interview over the weekend that he did not know what his wife had said to Mr. Bartlett and that he did not want to say whether Mr. Bartlett ”did or didn’t hurt fund-raising.” But Mr. Goodman added, ”That’s not why he was fired.”
