Here are just a few of the exchanges between NYTimes reporter Stephanie Strom and ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief last summer and fall over the increasingly obvious links between ACORN, Project Vote, and the Obama campaign. (Both Strom and MonCrief used pseudonymous e-mail addresses while communicating). It was my blog post on the ACORN/CSI money-laundering scheme that prompted MonCrief to push the story with Strom. Thanks to MonCrief’s continued campaign to get the truth out and aided by investigative crowd-sourcing predominantly on the right side of the blogosphere (in addition to MonCrief’s testimony for Pennsylvania lawyer Heather Heidelbaugh), a plethora of documents and information continue to pour across the web. I’ll have much more on this tomorrow and in coming days. But read these and compare with NYTimes public editor’s smug dismissal of the “Tip that didn’t pan out.”
To quote Strom: “The real story to all this is how these myriad entities allow them to shuffle money around so much that no one really knows what’s getting spent on what…”
How you like these apples now, Mr. Hoyt?
Note: Emails may be a bit hard to read. I’ll put up transcripts shortly, but wanted you to see the originals.
And one of my favorites, in which Strom (“Annie Maus”) writes that she is halting her ACORN reporting efforts and muses: “One of these days, the truth is going to come out.” Yeah, it is:
Kevin Mooney: Left-wing allies desperate to rescue corrupt ACORN.
Matthew Vadum: Crying distraction won’t work anymore.
Mitchell Blatt: ACORN’s Plan For Gerrymandering Districts
