Remember, by the way: these people are advocates for even stricter campaign finance laws than the ones they have. They therefore have to be better about this sort of thing than their opponents. Myself, I think that it’s absurd that this sort of thing could even be arguably illegal, but then I think that most campaign finance laws are absurd anyway. Hillary Clinton doesn’t have this excuse*.
You ever get the feeling that the Democratic party leadership has an inherent difficulty at understanding just how badly emails can blow up in your face, if you’re not careful?
As you have undoubtedly heard by now, the FBI has arrested one Norman Leboon for death threats made against Congressman Eric Cantor, in the wake of the Democratic National Committee’s fear-mongering fundraising drive regarding… threats of organized GOP violence. This is not, by the way, the first time that Leboon has fallen for the Democratic’s party cynical agitprop; he was one of the plaintiffs in an anti-FISA lawsuit a few years back. So there’s a history there of him believing whatever nonsense that the Democrats fed him.
Well. Turns out he’s an Obama contributor from 2008, too. See here for the H/T, and see here for a video where he identifies himself as “Norman Leboon Sr.” Sounds good enough to avoid the question mark I had in the title, so I’d like to ask Brad Woodhouse of the Democratic National Committee something (seeing as he was the guy who so publicly dismissed the need to ratchet down the rhetoric): what are you going to do to get rid of this blood money, Brad? I mean, personally.
And another question: what were you going to say to Eric Cantor’s wife if the FBI hadn’t caught this guy in time? Assuming that it wouldn’t have been a moot point anyway.
