Skip to comments.MD4BUSH: THE SAGA CONTINUES

The Baltimore Sun has the latest on the smelly case. An excerpt:
An e-mail address of a former state Democratic Party worker was used in a discussion about Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley's marriage on a conservative Web site, a spokesman for the site said yesterday.
Kristinn Taylor, a spokesman for free republic.com, said Ryan O'Doherty's Democratic Party address was one of at least three used to operate the identity of MD4BUSH, the mysterious Internet poster who appears to have coaxed an aide to Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. into talking about the mayor's personal life.
MD4BUSH sought out another freerepublic visitor known as ncpac, who was later revealed to be longtime Ehrlich political aide Joseph F. Steffen Jr.
Steffen confirmed to a Washington Post reporter in February that he wrote the e-mails discussing O'Malley rumors. But after publishing several articles, the Post acknowledged that the reporter, Matthew Mosk, had logged on as MD4BUSH from his work computer to verify the exchange, further complicating the story.
Taylor said the latest information about e-mail addresses - which the Web site previously refused to release citing privacy rules - indicates that the Ehrlich aide was unfairly targeted by the governor's opponents.
"I think people ought to be concerned that political operatives and Washington Post reporters will violate your Internet privacy for their own nefarious purposes," Taylor said.
Now, compare the Sun article with the Washington Post's coverage today. Note that the paper omits any reference to its own involvement in the matter.
The "MD4Bush" scandal
I know who MD4BUSH is.
Man, you've got to admit, Rove is good. His Right-Wing Sith mental powers have even co-opted Democratic activists and the Washington Compost...[/DU mode]
No Matthew Mosk? Shocking! :-/

It's a Mosk-free article. No pesky Mosk-itos.
Methinks Mr. Mosk may have just landed in Viveca Novak territory with this revelation.
Michelle Malkin on the case.
Nor should we.
A person lost their job unfairly I think.
The WAPO gets on FreeRepublic and, at best, reads posts and private Freepmail, at worst, actually makes bogus posts.
It was a dirty Dem trick and frankly I'm sick of this crap from them. Unless the drums keep getting banged they keep getting away with it.
gitty up Michelle!
I don't believe we are anywhere near the end of this.....
"I don't think we've heard the last of this saga."
That is probably the understatement of the year! :)
Hey, watch it! ;)
With Malkin on the case, this will get a wider audience.
Please FReepmail me if you would like to be added to, or removed from, the Michelle Malkin ping list...
