Update: More on Mike Rogers. He edits this site, which used to be affiliated with Raw Story. Interestingly enough, one month before that small site that broke the news showed up, Rogers closed down his old blogger site “Blogactive” and started a new one under a new URL. More on this later if I find something of interest.
Update: Well, folks should have known I would turn an eye on the blog site that was used to “expose’ Foley’s problems. One thing to note is it would not be impossible for the Dems to know of Foley’s issues. So let’s forget about the idea this was a secret for a year. First thing to note is the blog was started in July 2006. That means, if this was a disinformation campaign, the information on Foley was known months ago. First post was July 28th. This gives us an interesting horizen to focus on.
Update: Major Update at Mac Rangers (post linked below)! A democrat operative has admitted (as he pats himself on the back) of having the salacious emails before the news media (which, given the time of these emails many months ago is damning) and making sure the timing of the story coincided with optimal impact, before the elections:
Fact is that [Mike] Rogers admits to being in possession of the IMâ€™s BEFORE they were posted on the web via his own comments on his site:
â€œAs people know, itâ€™s not always possible for me to disclose my role in some of the activities.
I can say this. I had the emails before they were on the net. Additionally, I had the additional emails, written by the page to a friend. The story was being written by a number of outlets and I provided additional information to reporters involved in the breaking of this story.
Was [I] the central figure in reporting on Foleyâ€™s latest scandal? Never said I was. Was my work on the case important to helping make sure it came out before the election? Yes.
Did I have any idea that the GOP leadership was engaged in a cover-up? Nope. Do I love the fact that they are trying to spin this as â€˜naughty emails?â€™ Yup. because it shows how out of tought they are about queer closet cases.â€
The first person on the FBI list of people to investigate is this troll. More good questions from Rick Moran on the nothing site all of sudden attracting attention and breaking this story. Do these liberal really have brains? Does anyone think bloggers, experts in the media, would not sniff out a fraud?
Update: Clarice Feldman has a lot more on the questionable timing and sequence of events revolving around this story. Also, check back at Mac Ranger’s link below because it is becoming more and more possible Democrat operatives knew of the situation and allowed a predator to roam free so they could time the news for their partisan gain. Messages of complicancy are being removed from websites as we speak. The Democrats are going to be in a world of hurt their calls to protect children boomerang on them because they had the details of a crime and stayed silent, leaving children exposed and abused, to maximize their votes on this issue. – End Update
More at Mac Ranger’s site on the disturbing revelations that some on the left may have had detailed knowledge of Rep Foley’s crimes and hid them in order to use the revelations for partisan gain at a later date. While Folely was exploiting children to satisfy a sick, personal desire, anyone who allowed the continued exploitation of children for political gain is just as much a criminal as Foley. And maybe even more so. How could anyone let a child suffer so they could use the suffering months (and maybe years) later for their own purposes? If ever there was complicancy in a criminal act, this is it. It is not necessary for the Folely to know about these acts of covering the crime to make them any less criminal. For once, and for the country, I hope this is not what happened. If our political discourse has sunk to this kind of low, then we as a nation are in serious trouble. And we have been brought to this ugly point by ugly acts from all corners of our political leadership.
