Cosh Cross-Examination Continues
Still on cross after the lunch break, defense attorney Stephen Morgan asked Cosh about the campaign contact sheets he made up when he was at the caucus. Korte had brought the sheets up during his direct examination as an example of what Cosh did as a regional campaign manager.
Cosh noted that between May 23 and June 27, 2000, Cosh contacted the Pettis campaign 16 times. Cosh explained that Pettis' "campaigns and office had quite a few problems," that "Pettis' staff at the time was not a very competent person." Morgan asked if the sheets were meant as a sort of "CYA" document. Cosh said that was a phrase he used.
