    The missing link? Partner of GOPUSA founder has checkered past as Republican moneyman
    Did Bruce Eberle get Gannon top White House access?
    By John Byrne | RAW STORY Editor

    Reporters in Washington are scrambling to explain how a reporter with a dubious past got access to the president, and how his boss-a relative nobody in Republican Party circles-scored an exclusive interview with Bush's closest advisor, Karl Rove.

    The tangled web of how a minor website got such high-level access, and possibly classified information, may have begun to unravel.

    RAW STORY has found a solid connection between the founder of Talon News and GOPUSA and a well-connected relative and business partner whose links to Bush advisors, dubious fundraising and marketing activities and paid commentators abound.

    Bruce W. Eberle-a member of the Bobby Eberle "clan" (according to his former website which Bobby bought), the founder of GOPUSA and Talon News-may be the missing link.

    Many have wondered how Bobby Eberle, an former engineer with no journalism experience who never donated to a political campaign managed to get Jeff Gannon so deep into the White House. Bobby received money from the Republican Party just once-a meager $165 for travel expenses when he spoke to the Smith County Republicans in East Texas. He did not receive an honorarium.

    •  We have been dgging on Bruce Eberke for weeks (none)
      Not ure how RAW story is adding anything at all and  this is not a scoop or new info.

      cheers,
