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.
< snip >
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.
< snip >
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!
Here’s the link I used earlier today:
I just checked and it’s still there. Shocking read. We’ve got to stand up to il Dooshobambi and his goon squad.
What is the Daily Kossack connection here?
“I’m very sure some got to him.”
GOT TO HIM?
Wow, there is a pogrom going on in the US of A.
Pray for America.
Obama Goon Squad ping from St. Louis County, Missouri!
I could not locate McCullochs from the same site. I sent here an email from her form and might suggest others do the same.
Click the stltoday link above and they have a further link to KOmmieland.
PJ, Paul, as someone living in the People’s Republic of St. Louis, I may want to DUFU (tomorrow or Monday) reaction to this story in KOmmieland and/or DUmmieland.
Its gone!! Nothing on Drudge! TOO HOT FOR DRUDGE TO HANDLE?
Other than Drudge, I don’t think the national Obama media has mentioned anything about this.
Obama is giving us all a taste of how he means to govern. If he gets to remake the USSC then that will all be effective. Freedom of speech will have a rapidly increasing amount of exceptions and more and more things will be defined as “shouting FIRE! in a crowded theater.” The Fairness Doctrine will be resurrected even before he gets to make changes on the court. With control of the Executive and the Legislative this time around, especially if he gets sufficient senators I expect him to try to add a couple of Justices to the Court, put it up to 11 Justices or so. If he gets that then the Constitution will complete the transformation into a document with no meaning at all.
Seriously, do you think Drudge took it down out of fear?
I thought it would be reported as some scandal, but the acted like it was nothing.
Do these officers of law have bosses????????????????
Was Drudge threatened also? Why did he remove it?
Il Snot Nose!
My buggers are haloed, they are divine!
Bow before me! all ye pigs!
Maybe Obama knows a shoe may drop!
Larry Sinclair can drive down there in one day and challenge these uneducated monkey to do battle with him.
Ask Drudge what the **** is going on?
Really hate to think Drudge is a Coward on
the biggest story ever! The Loss of Our First
Amendment Rights to an Indonesian Con Artist!
I did. Everybody here should ask. There’s a little box in the lower right hand corner of his site to submit comments. Go to it.
yep! I asked Drudge what happened and is he “afraid” of bambi?
Get a sticker, go to Mo., get a ticket, sue the hell out of them. Hey gang, they’re giving money away in Mo.
Intimidation or fear? That may seem a little paranoiac but, look at the tactics used by the 0bama campaign. Not much of a stretch.
To those who completely dismiss the likelihood of the 0bama campaign from using these kind of tactics...? In the words of Senator McCain..."Oh, please!"
The encouraging part (if there IS one) is that no one defended what the O-boy campaign did in the comments section under the article. If anything, several folks pointed out the truth about O-boy’s associates and his childhood as a Muslim, and those facts may get to someone who hasn’t seen them before now. (I’m trying to be positive here, no flames, please.)
It is under recent headlines. He took it off the front page.
....this should get real good come Monday when Rush gets a hold of it
I hope Sarah brings up the Truth Squads in her debate with Biden.
This is the kind of stupid assed crap Obama spends money on, he is such an amateur and a loser and is unfit to lead! Whining crybaby who is so afraid we will all find out the truth about HIM that is why it is the Truth Squad and even that name is so cartoonish and lame!
