A former Obama staffer has been arrested in false ID scheme aimed at implicating a Republican office-holder in unethical behavior.
“So on its face, Edwards’s identity theft appears to be part of a coordinated effort by the Iowa Democratic Party to bring down the Republican Secretary of State so he can be replaced with a Democrat. We hope that Edwards will get the long jail term that he deserves, but the more important question is, from whom was he taking instructions? Circumstantially, one would guess from his boss, Jeff Link. But if so, who was instructing (and paying?) Link’s firm? The White House? Tom Harkin? Iowa’s Democratic Party?”
Of course, hoards of mainstream journalists are now gathering in Iowa to cover this story.
