Nina in the tapes (6): a senate seat sought for Nina

One of the worst moments in the tapes for the Conservatives comes on p. 13 of the June 5th transcript. After complaining bitterly about his tangles with Joe Volpe over the last election and Grewal's visa bond scheme, and Murphy suggests that an apology from Volpe might be arranged, Grewal makes his moves:
This part of the transcript is especially problematic for the Conservative version of events. First, it clearly shows that Grewal was asking for an appointment, not being offered one (as he had claimed here, ยง[3], for example). Second, it clearly shows that Nina was at the center of the discussions, which is difficult to square with her claim that she knew nothing of the negotiations.
