Skip to comments.McCain-Obama battle over Missouri "Truth Squad"
Posted on 09/27/2008 5:06:57 PM PDT by Charles Henrickson
With the Missouri polls showing a dead heat between Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama, every campaign move is igniting scrutiny.
Thats the backdrop over a two-day dust-up that is attracting local TV coverage, and has even ignited a Web fight between the Drudge Report and the Daily Kos.
At issue is a new Obama Truth Squad formed in the state.

Obamas Missouri Truth Squad members include St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer and St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch, among others.
The inclusion of such officials has led to Gov. Matt Blunt, among other Republicans, to accuse the Obama camp of planning to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

In a statement Saturday (issued from the governors office), Blunt went further and contended that the state Obama campaign and its allies, including U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics

This article was just posted on their website about an hour ago. The Post-Dispatch finally is covering this story, and then only a little bit. I guess that Governor Blunt's statement made it hard for them to ignore.
Here is what I wrote on the comment section after the story:
FINALLY, after several days of silence, you guys are covering this story! The fascist intimidation tactics of the Obama Goon Squad are absolutely outrageous! Bob McCulloch and Jennifer Joyce ought to be ashamed of themselves, blurring the line between their prosecutorial offices and their political activism for one candidate. Disgraceful! This is an assault on the First Amendment.
This controversy was posted on Drudge but it is now gone. ?????????
Great comment. I hope there is a tremendous backlash against Barack HUSSEIN Obama over this one.
Governor Blunt Attacks Obama Campaign's Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement...
McCain needs to turn Obama’s fascism into an ad.
The left in this country is playing with fire. They don’t see it, and they won’t see it until it comes down on them.
what sort of fight between Drudge and Kos?
odd, I don’t have it either.
Maybe Obama knows a shoe may drop!

Tipsville: Sneed hears rumbles that convicted influence peddler Tony Rezko, whose dealings have been linked to Barack Obama and Gov. Blagojevich, is singing to the feds.
To wit: “I’m told by a close friend of Rezko that he’s cooperating with the feds,” said a Sneed source. “I don’t know whether he’s talking about Gov. Blagojevich or Barack Obama or anyone else,” the source said.

The shocker: Rezko, a Wilmette businessman who was a top adviser and fund-raiser for Blago, has been locked up at the Metropolitan Correctional Center awaiting an Oct. 28 sentencing — one week before the presidential election.
Background: Convicted in June of wide-ranging fraud tied to kickbacks on state deals, Rezko’s involvement in real estate deals with Gov. Blago’s wife, Patti, are also under federal scrutiny.
It’s gone. It was in the left hand column, but now it’s gone.
Did the goon squad make them nervous?
There is a reason its called The DRUDGE REPORT not the BakerInSanJose Report.
>> and has even ignited a Web fight between the Drudge Report and the Daily Kos.
I was beginning to think Matt had a change of heart about abortion.
Gone now. RATS!
