Being an apologist for evil taints a person with that evil, because it makes the person partially responsible for the perpetuation of the evil.
This woman broke a contract with the people in attendance at the straw pole. The reason appears to be because she was attempting to utilize the media to perpetrate a fraud on other Republican candidates by fixing the straw pole. I'm sorry, but that plants her firmly in "scum-bag" territory.
I'm not calling for any type of severe punishment, but certainly public humiliation is the very least that she deserves. That also stands as a warning to others who would perpetrate similar frauds on the people. Emailing her, as you said, is pointless at best, and potentially destructive.
