Even as congressional candidate Jake Ford was forced on Thursday to acknowledge a history of violence — including an attack on his own father — and past problems with the law, there was fresh evidence of verbal hostility on his part against brother Harold Ford Jr., the Democrats' high-flying candidate for the United States Senate. The good news for the Ford family: Maybe people (like the rival Republican Senate campaign of Bob Corker) will have to stop calling the Fords a seamless monolith. After all, wasn't that Aunt Ophelia Ford, a candidate herself this year, wearing a Cohen button the other night? (For the complete story, see "Political Beat.")
