On Sept. 7, Moncrief wrote to Strom that she had donor lists from the campaigns of Obama and Hillary Clinton and that there had been "constant contact" between the campaigns and Project Vote, an Acorn affiliate whose tax-exempt status forbids it to engage in partisan politics. Moncrief said she had withheld that information earlier but was disclosing it now that the conservative columnist Michelle Malkin was "all over it."
"I am sorry," she wrote, "but I believe in Obama and did not want to help the Republicans."
This story should have been of the magnitude of Swift Boat or Rathergate but thanks to NY Times editors it got the "move on, nothing to see here" treatment.
Hinderaker does a fabulous job of delineating how the NY Times has managed to cover up their own dishonesty and complicity with a simple turn of a phrase by their ombudsman.
