Secret donors funded Feingold questions to judicial nominee; Washington Post involved.
(Page 5 of 5)
The answer we are supposed to get here comes from one Fred Wertheimer, quoted in the New York Times “Secret Donor” article as saying these conservative organizations are all about “guaranteed corruption.”
And Mr. Wertheimer? The Times identifies him as “a longtime supporter of campaign finance regulation,” a former head of the liberal group Common Cause “who now runs Democracy 21, which pushes for campaign reform.”
Sounds so lovely, doesn’t it? But wait! What has the Times mysteriously left out of its story?
That’s right. Democracy 21, the group which longtime reformer Fred Wertheimer runs, gets money from — you guessed it — the Open Society Institute.
Which is to say, like Russell Feingold — the Senator from Soros who was the recipient of Soros Secret Donor Money used to influence his conduct during a long-ago hearing for a federal judicial nominee — Mr. Wertheimer has a tad of a PR problem on his hand, if not an ethical dilemma..
You see, Mr. Wertheimer’s grand reform group Democracy 21 is taking Secret Donor Money its very own self. You may find that undisclosed information right here.
Sometimes you just can’t make it up.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
