Glazed doughnut destroyed Axelrod’s BlackBerry

Plouffe and Axelrod were having the “standard road show campaign breakfast — coffee and Dunkin’ Donuts,” when Axelrod said, “I got glazed doughnut in the trackwheel of my BlackBerry and it’s stuck.”

Plouffe notes Axelrod was “legendary within the campaign for spilling food and mishaps with electronic gadgets.” Still, he writes, it had to be the first “death by glazed doughnut.”
