Politico reported in March 2011 that Sessions “raised eyebrows” by bringing Diebel to a meeting of the House GOP Conference, meetings to which candidates in contested primaries are not usually invited. Days before the August 2010 primary, a rival who ended up running third, Craig Miller, the former CEO of Ruth’s Chris Steak House, sent voters a mailer accusing Diebel of being “unstable” and “bizarre.” He cited a spate of 911 calls Diebel had made, including one in which she alleged that a political opponent had placed a snake in her pool, and public arguments she was involved in on the city commission. Sessions, in his role as National Republican Congressional Committee chairman, sought to referee the nastiness. In particular, he took issue with an allegation of Diebel’s “erratic behavior” drawn from a quote by a Democratic official.Unstable and bizarre, huh? She's perfect for him.
