USW: Soptic Not in Video

By on 8.16.12 | 10:41AM

The United Steelworkers in the person of one Tony Montana has contacted me in response to my query yesterday to say that the man in the 2008 video mentioned in my article today is in fact not a younger Joe Soptic. He is Ken Flanagan, a member of the USW Local 1375 from Warren, Ohio.

Thanks, Tony.

Unsure myself, there was a need to ask for positive ID, which is now in hand. The question still stands, however. How did the Obama campaign and the Obama SuperPAC learn of Joe Soptic? Was it through Leo Gerard… who holds an official position in the Obama Administration? And as such is forbidden to have any contact/interaction with the Obama SuperPAC?

The Obama campaign has a problem here. Caught in the act of lying by Sean Hannity, with tapes to prove it, they have created their own campaign scandal.
