Disgraced Pundit Mark Halperin’s Accusers Call His New Political Book Deal a ‘Slap in the Face’

Disgraced political pundit and author Mark Halperin has recently signed a deal to publish a book on Trump-era political strategy, his first major project since his career derailed in October 2017 amid multiple accusations of sexual misconduct and harassment.

As first reported by Politico Playbook, the Game Change author inked a deal with Regan Arts to publish How to Beat Trump: America’s Top Political Strategists on What It Will Take. The book, which is scheduled to come out in November, will focus on interviews with dozens of Democratic political strategists, including Donna Brazile, David Axelrod, Amanda Renteria, James Carville, Jennifer Granholm, and Kathleen Sebelius.

Judith Regan, the head of Regan Arts, is scheduled to release the following statement upon the announcement of the book’s upcoming release, according to Politico: “I do not in any way, shape, or form condone any harm done by one human being to another. I have also lived long enough to believe in the power of forgiveness, second chances, and offering a human being a path to redemption. HOW TO BEAT TRUMP is an important, thoughtful book, and I hope everyone has a chance to read it.”

The news came as a shock to accusers, including one who described the development as a “slap in the face to all the women that he has victimized.”
