  •  Really? (0+ / 0-)

    What Kline says is a slight exaggeration at best -- it is essentially true.

    What is essentially true?  
    1)The diarist didn't work for Rowley when he went to Kline's office.
    2)He didn't try to give money anonymously.
    3)What's phony about a $10 bill?
    4)He didn't try to hide his identity.
    5)Is he a "senior member of Coleen Rowley's campaign"?  
    6)Is he Coleen Rowley's research director?  

    I count six outright lies in four sentences.
    I'm no lawyer and I wouldn't give legal advice one way or the other but for you to say that flyer was essentially true is ridiculous.

    It's a sad day in America when politicians think unpaid volunteers are fair game for public smear campaigns.

        When you, Mia, give expert advice and get accused of being a troll because of it!

          is the reaction to this.  Republicans are dirty cheaters?  Tell me something I don't know. Four years ago, Minnesota Republicans spun Paul Wellstone's funeral into electoral victory.  They are going to keep doing it, especially if we keep making it easy for them.  

          Instead of talking about suing them or exposing Kline for this we should work on not giving the Republicans easy material to work with.  Maybe some self-reflection instead of cheerleading.  Despite all the bitching here, if you read the linked article about this with any objectivity, its Rowley who looks bad.  Time to stop pretending everything is ok when its not.

          Rowley needs to:

          1. issue a statement explaining that this guy was not with the campaign when he went to Kline's office, and that the content on the website was not authorized by the campaign.
          1. Shitcan him.
