Dick Fritter

Dick FritterPolitical strategist and pundit Dick Fritter has seen it all. A self-proclaimed politics tragic, he has worked with just about everyone, from Rob Muldoon to Osama bin Laden.

Fritter’s biographer, Michael Bassett, has described the master strategist as a “hard drinking, hard living, hard loving man who can sniff out any scandal and manage any crisis.”

Fritter’s skills are much in demand around the world, and he counsels kings, tyrants and despots from Africa to Central America.

But Fritter will be best known to readers as the brains behind the controversial “Homo/Not Homo” billboards that worked so effectively for National in the last election.
