    a diary, posted by space this morning, on a Gannon-style sports reporter, Mark Sabia, who allegedly used a fake news outlet for credentials. So this guy -->

         is charged now with 5 felony counts and 16 misdemeanor counts including criminal impersonation.

     

        space says -

    "Let's get this straight.  A hooker enters the White House on the eve of war. He impersonates a journalist under a false name for two years and asks questions of the President of the United States.  No charges.

    "A guy gets into pro locker rooms under his own name. Five felony counts, including criminal impersonation.

        Sabia, from Ossining, NY was arrested at Shea stadium Monday and charged.

    So why isn't Guckert being subjected to legal scrutiny?  
    Because the GOP administration doesn't want it explored. They need this to be buried.

    •  What's to Explore? (none)
      There's nothing here. Seems clear enough to me that the WH knew exactly who JG/JG was, and that they were okay with it. (I'm not, but I'm not WH security, am I.)

      Seems that, beyond our virtual walls here, too much of the voting public looks on the Bulldog stories as merely part of a political comedy routine. Bizzarro World: we've definitely arrived.

    •  Is military impersonation illegal? (none)
      Does anyone know? Especially given the way Guckert tied his prostitution business to the military? If it is illegal, who could press charges?
    •  I wonder... (none)
            Who is responsible for bringing these charges, like criminal impersonation? Is there any jurisdiction we could get to look into this, maybe an ambitious liberal D.C. DA that we could offer some netroots support to? Anybody have any clue about this stuff?

        by the Queens County DA.  The criminal impersonation charge was a misdemeanor charge, I see, whereas the writing by space up above was a little jumbled and not so clear on that. The felony charges related to allegedly falsified business records.  Wouldn't you think the federal attorneys operating around DC would be under the thumb of the Dept. of Justice?

        You'd need to apply political pressure before they'd open an investigation. Noise from Dems in Congress, etc.
