MD GOV: "We Will Soon Know Who MD4BUSH IS"
WBAL Radio ^ | 11-12-05 | self

(FR) BALTIMORE MARYLAND-Maryland's Republican governor announced this morning on WBAL-Baltimore radio that the mysterious identity of MD4BUSH would soon be revealed.

In response to questions about the MD4BUSH affair, in which a democrat operative got an aide to the governor to comment online about infidelity rumours of Baltimore Mayor Martin Omally, the Governor became angry over the double standard. "When this thing broke I had cameras and mics stuck in my face, now that it seems MD4BUSH is a democrat operative working in conjunction with a major media outlet...its a set-up...where are the cameras now?"

The governor laughed when a caller slyly suggested he subpeana Freerepublic.com in the name of "good government" in case MD4BUSH was actually an "evil republican on a state computer attacking not only Omally but (D) MD Sen Barbara Mikulski." He laughed again when the caller suggested "Surely the democrats would want the identity brought out"

The double standard of the media and was further discussed as the caller stated "Joe Steffen used sexual rumours to achieve a political goal, MD4BUSH did the same thing while in the process "outing" a fellow democrat-this just shows you how much MD democrats will do anything to stop you" The governor replied, "and again where are the cameras? Only 2 reporters have been pursuing the story from the democrat set-up angle" he continued "I'm not worried too much about it as we will soon know who MD4BUSH is, probably in the next few days"

Where's the Fitz guy when you really need a exhaustive and thorough investigation?

Sorry, I just can't read these posts.

Back in the 80s, there were these ads in the NYC subways for a doctor that would remove anal warts and perform other such "unspeakable in public" procedures. He was known by his phone number MD-TUSCH.

(I may have a letter out of place, the "C", maybe. But ask anyone who rode the subways back then. They'll remember.)

Fitzy would have charged Jim Robinson for drinking coffee while posting or something similiar.

The governor sounded pissed at the local press but at least WBAL has kept after the story. I read somewhere that there was a bit of a contretemps between reporter Dave Collins and someone at the mayor's office. Sucks to be them.

I remember MD-TUSCH about as well as Dr. Zizmore! Thank you, Dr. Zizmore!

Anyway, here's hoping Governor Ehrlich is correct and this whole sorry episode is put to rest once and for all.

The Governor missed an important opportunity to point out that Steffen did NOT use sexual rumors at any time in his public threads, and according to recent reports did not even do so in his private freepmails. All he did was to caution MD4BUSH that using sexual rumors was inappropriate.

What the governor should have pointed is that the cameras were all over the place when a lie was being spread about what Steffen had done, but that when an actual case of vicious rumor mongering by the Democrats was revealed, the cameras all disappeared.

Thanks.

The first thing that came to my mind re Fitzy investigating this mess, was Fitzy would have found some way to blame Jim Rob for the crimes of the rats.

If I remember correctly, Steffen said only said "I heard those rumours too" and it was MD4Bush who did all the talking. This was a setup from the get go.

Good work, and thank you! I really liked the way the Govenor kept mentioning the almost total lack of MSM attention once it was suspected that MD4BUSH was a Democratic operative working with a major media outlet (Washington Post).

Well, the Governor's staff isn't speaking to two Baltimore Sun reporters, so it's par for the course, I guess.

Have any idea who at the Mayor's office? There seems to be two main possibilities - Steve Kearney, who worked with Ryan O'Doherty and tried to get him a job at City Hall, or First Deputy Mayor Michael Enright, who spoke with Michelle Lane when she tried to get a job there. My guess is Steve Kearney.

Yeah, we'd be better off with Starr : he'd bring charges against the liberal operatives and then allow them to walk in return for a guilty plea, but at least he's one of the few who's programming even ALLOWS him to investigate a Democrat.

I am lost in the twilight zone...WHAT is this about?! I read a few posts on MD4BUSH but didn't find any interest in it! Is MD4BUSH the raging Cajun Carvillia?!! For some reason this little titty bitty scandal has gotten lost in the media...I hope it's EXPLOSIVE and will finally nail the dirty RATS!

The governor should rehire Steffin. That would bring the media back into the story.

Sounds familiar to the statements made by Libby and Rove, and that too was a set up, imho.

It takes a democrat hack to use "exhaustive and thorough" to describe calling only witnesses you wish in order to develop proof to a personal theory while ommitting witnesses who are either allies or may be damaging to the project.

AMEN!

You bet. They can't win at the ballot box or by voter fraud so get the CIA to set up the WH.

Can't someone submit this MD4BUSH story to Brit Hume ?

I would think this could at least get some mention in his "From the political grapevine" segment.

I don't think there will be much of a story until MD4Bush is unmasked.

The original story of the evil, no good Republican spreading rumors about the poor, innocent Democrat mayor of Baltimore, did make national news, of course. </ sarcasm> Even the New York Times wrote a story about it.

Justice delayed is Justice denied. Heard that somewhere more than once. ;-)

This drag it out in perpetuity legality process thing that has become so much of our culture is is need of a good swift kick in the butt, imo, as it oft time is used in politicoland to perform CYA and allow perps and conspirators time to cover their you know whats.

I realize that some things do take time, but there should be reasonable expectations that justice will be done before all the parties are pushing up daisies in some instances. It's not like we are talking a capital offense case here.

Let the chips fall where they may but let's get this thing done.

Who is MD4Bush? Enquirin' minds want to know.

Jim Rob will let us know when it is appropriated.

In the meantime the MD rats and the lying Whore$ of the Compost are on the shiskabob getting turned slowly over some intense heat.

I understand perfectly what you are saying.

I also understand that the Washington compost is owned by the same company that owns FOX news.

I still think that Brit Hume is smart enough to know that this story WILL be exposed, and has the stones to bring it forward.
Even if it means that someone from the WAPO takes a bad hit.

IMHO

That's not true. The Washington Post is owned by the Washington Post Company. Fox News is owned by News Corp.
