Spivak & Bice Column Briefly Drew Cosh to Pettis' Campaign
In 2000, Cosh said he was briefly assigned to Rep. Mark Pettis' campaign after Pettis gave an interview with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnists Spivak & Bice that resulted in what Cosh called a "negative story."
Asked who Spivak & Bice were, Cosh described them as "political gossip columnists."
After the story came out, Cosh said, "I was told I would be shadowing Mr. Pettis everywhere he went." However, a co-worker who was assigned to Rep. Jerry Petrowski's campaign quit abruptly soon thereafter, and Cosh was moved there instead.
