Harold M. Ickes

Harold M. Ickes | WIKIPEDIA | OCT 19, 2016

Since 2005, Ickes has been associated with a progressive data collection and voter file organization called “Catalist” (formerly “Data Warehouse”). He currently serves as Catalist’s President.[6]

  • He chaired Bill Clinton‘s presidential campaign in New York in 1992, persuading state Democrats to stand by Clinton despite the controversy over Gennifer Flowers.
  • In the Clinton administration, Ickes served as Deputy Chief of Staff under Leon Panetta. In a lengthy New York Times profile of Ickes in 1997, Michael Lewis nicknamed Ickes “the Garbage Man” and noted that ‘Ickes has been caught up in so many of Clinton’s scandals and crises that he came to describe his function in the White House as ‘director of the sanitation department’.’[10]
  • He was a contender against Howard Dean for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
