Be Wise Among Wolves!
A political party was searching for just the right candidate to fill a critical position. After much searching, they found just the right person. He had every qualification necessary, including name recognition and a record of achievement that was quite impressive.
Things were going well, and it looked like he had all the votes necessary to win — until the “wolves” came out and exposed statements he had given in a speech years earlier. They were certainly not statements he would make now, and he thought that they had been given to a friendly group in an informal setting, but they had been recorded and were now being used against him.
