Oops. That Shouldn't Have Gotten Out

Here are four interesting stories found today at Drudge Report. The Democrats, the left, and most of the liberal press didn't mean for these reports to get too far, but we are glad to help pass them along.

Democratic National Committee Worked To Defeat Nagin

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) secretly placed political operatives in the city of New Orleans to work against the reelection efforts of incumbent Democrat Mayor Ray Nagin, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

DNC Chairman Howard Dean made the decision himself to back mayoral candidate and sitting Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu (D-LA), sources reveal.

Dean came to the decision to back the white challenger, over the African-American incumbent Nagin, despite concerns amongst senior black officials in the Party that the DNC should stay neutral.

It sounds like the Democrats are returning to their roots. They don't like the Republican Uncle Tom's, as they call them, and now they don't support blacks in their own party, either. Yet, the Democrats take the black vote for granted.

II. Website (Leftist) Issues 'Partial Apology' Regarding Rove Indictment Report... (from TruthOut)

On Saturday afternoon, May 13, 2006, TruthOut ran a story titled, "Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators." The story stated in part that top Bush aide Karl Rove had earlier that day been indicted on the charges set forth in the story's title.

The time has now come, however, to issue a partial apology to our readership for this story. While we paid very careful attention to the sourcing on this story, we erred in getting too far out in front of the news-cycle. In moving as quickly as we did, we caused more confusion than clarity. And that was a disservice to our readership and we regret it.

As such, we will be taking the wait-and-see approach for the time being. We will keep you posted.

I guess that the story is "fake but accurate." It will be hard to track this one as the web site is being constantly updated to try to justify their reporting error. They are still saying it's true, but that they are just too far ahead of the curve. If you think that organization is nuts, just read the first comment from one of their typical readers. This same organization concerned with truth also presents us with this other true story: "West's Failure Over Climate Change "Will Kill 182 Million Africans"

III. Caught On Tape: Dem congressman accepting $100,000 in $100 bills... (AP)

A congressman under investigation for bribery (Rep. William Jefferson, D-La) was caught on videotape accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded, according to a court document released Sunday. Agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer.

That's $100,000 in cold cash. We've heard about this Democratic congressman before: Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., who represents New Orleans, led a daring mission at the height of the flood crisis to help an African-American resident of New Orleans to salvage his possessions and to be evacuated.

IV. Give and take across the border...

Roughly 10 percent of Mexico's population of about 107 million is now living in the United States, estimates show. About 15 percent of Mexico's labor force is working in the United States. One in every 7 Mexican workers migrates to the United States.

Last year, Mexico received a record $20 billion in remittances from migrant workers. That is equal to Mexico's 2004 income from oil exports and dwarfing tourism revenue. Arriving in small monthly transfers of $100 and $200, remittances have formed a vast river of "migra-dollars".... The money Mexican migrants send home almost equals the U.S. foreign aid budget for the entire world....

Are our Mexican restaurants better than theirs? It must be something.

They must be hearing the Donks offering to lead them to utopia (for votes), Woody.
Good round-up of the dastardly!

There is a racist candidate in AL that the DNC won't boot off the ballot. So none of what you wrote about surprises me one bit.

You're right, Jo. I knew about that, but I didn't want to embarrass the fine people of Alabama with the racist reputation of the candidate backed by the Democrats. But, since it's out there, here it is:

Candidate: Holocaust didn't happen

A Democratic candidate for attorney general denies the Holocaust occurred and said Friday he will speak this weekend to a "pro-white" organization that is widely viewed as being racist.

Larry Darby concedes his views are radical, but he said they should help him win wide support among Alabama voters as he tries to "reawaken white racial awareness" with his campaign against Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson.

The state Democratic chairman, Joe Turnham, said the party became aware of some of Darby's views only days ago and was considering what to do about his candidacy.

Alabama doesn't need and doesn't want to "reawaken white racial awareness," but it appears that the Democratic Party a lot more time to determine if this is something that the Democrats should care about or take action on.

Interesting, The DNC is reportedly looking into lega action against drudge, claiming the story is false here.

To answer your question Woody- as someone who lives close to the Mexican border and vacations in Mexico all of the time: Yes, our Mexican restaurants are MUCH better here. No kidding.
