thanks for doing the research. the Democratic ticket is target rich enough without needing to add false accusations to the mix.

false accusations and baseless rumors are wrong as a matter of principle and they also (as we see in the case of the various smears against Sarah Palin) have a tendency to backfire.

I don’t think it’s wrong to post a rumor that has not been verified, as long as you state very clearly that you are posting it in the hope that someone can either prove it or debunk it. That way, if someone just reads the post and doesn’t follow the discussion they will not run the risk of passing on a lie. Also, it will challenge folks to do a bit of digging, rather than just forwarding (as the liberals have been doing with Sarah Palin rumors all week).

See just above.

I confirmed this with Mr. Riddle.

These were NOT baseless rumors - and the matter was resolved with the current campaign debt owed a corporation being paid, BUT the old debt owed personally to the CPA for his work being written off after 20 years. NOT PAID.

Mr. Riddle adds...

Thanks. This has been a nightmare week. About 600 phone calls and 700 e-mails. I have not been able to work.
