The Department of Justice has hired a team of partisan Democrat campaign bloggers to work at the Department.....Tracy Russo is one such blogger from the campaign of John Edwards. The unit is housed in the Office of Public Affairs....They are also tasked with posting anonymous comments, or comments under pseudonyms, at newspaper websites with stories critical of the Department of Justice, Holder and President Obama....There is clearly a designed effort to rebut stories that are exposing the Holder Justice Department as more political than the last. Weve seen a change in the pattern of anonymous emails we receive and comments posted at our papers webpage.

This absolutely the real deal by the way. Please folks, start investigating, send it to newspapers, whatever you gotta do. We can’t allow our tax dollars to be used against us.
Why don’t they just do the right thing, instead of doing the wrong thing and then spinning it. It’s alot cheaper
( for us )
Where do we begin? Help me get started!
Just send it to your newspapers, email your friends (God I hate saying that by the way...but this is for real). Whatever. Please note that this guy seems to know a lot about the DOJ, just read through all his other articles (skim them). One of them was reported by Rush not 20 minutes after I posted his article here, some months back. That was the one where Holder said whites/Christians wouldn’t be protected under hate crime legislation.
I was hoping this was satire. Doesn’t appear to be.
Is it legal?
Ya, this isn’t satire. I have a satire blog that I write for, which may confuse some folks granted, but this is the real deal.
Not certain, I’m no legal guy. But “anonymous bloggers” posting for the government to make Obama and Holder look good is certainly creepy as hell.
Wow. First the NEA and now this.
The government and The Party are now one and the same.
Turning government agencies into a part of the Democrat Party is not legal. But whose going to stop them?
Tracy Russo currently directs the new media strategy at the United States Department of Justice. Prior to joining the Justice Department she formed Russo Strategies, LLC, a progressive political consulting firm that specialized in new media strategies.
During the 2008 presidential primary, as the chief blogger and deputy director of online communications for the John Edwards campaign, she directed and executed an online communications and outreach strategy. She also helped to develop and execute an aggressive online fundraising strategy and mobile media plan.
Prior to joining the Edwards campaign, Russo worked at the DNC. She has been a featured speaker at the YearlyKos Convention, the Take Back America Conference and the Center for American Progress' Internet Advocacy Roundtable and Personal Democracy Forum. In addition, she has worked partnership with a variety of organizations, including the DNC, DLCC, EMILY's List, Campaigns and Elections Magazine, and the New Organizing Institute and George Washington University training individuals at home and abroad in the best practices of online engagement .
They’ve been doing this for two years on the CBS website. I called them on it because there was one guy with multiple nic names posting 24/7 through the campaign, and now the administration. Every time I mentioned it in a post, CBS banned me. I’ve been banned over 350 times by CBS, including three times yesterday after posting negative comments regarding this administration and the democratic hypocrites.
Their ilk were caught on several blogspots, including our own, and quickly banned. One woman who started posting on obamacrimes.com claimed to be a lawyer and kept making ridiculus legal assumptions about Berg’s cases. She also was posting 24/7 which puzzled me regarding the obvious neglect of her legal practice. When our website opened she followed us over there and we were able to get her ISP address and traced it to some small time political candidate assistance group and come to find out she answered the phones there.
These people are rabid, almost like an infestation of bad bugs or something. Also, reminds me of a pack of hyaenas ripping and tearing at flesh intent on destroying free thinking individuals.
Wow, this is all news to me. I guess it should have been obvious that this kind of stuff was going on.
| WHOA this is not right and I bet there are some LEGAL and codified ethical breeches with this as well!
This is PROPAGANDA, just like the National Endowment for the Arts scandal, by our own government against the First Amendment and MORE SPECIFICALLY, by our Justice Department which should be politically-neutral.

Anonymous DOJ Blogger Campaign Attacks Media and Critics Exclusive News from the Muffled Oar
The Department of Justice has hired a team of partisan Democrat campaign bloggers to work at the Department. The Muffled Oar has learned this decision was treated with a great deal of skepticism both inside the career ranks at the Department but also among some Obama loyalists who expressed concern that such a decision would lend itself to the growing appearance that the Holder Justice Department is more political than the Bush Justice Department was ever accused of being. Tracy Russo is one such blogger from the campaign of John Edwards. The unit is housed in the Office of Public Affairs. Not only is the Department of Justice Blog Squad going to reach out to nontraditional media like TPM Muckraker or the Muffled Oar, but they are also tasked with placing anonymous comments at conservative leaning blogs such as the Free Republic.
I KNEW it seemed the tone of some of the postings on Free Republic had changed very recently! We need to contact the author and get more proof. If it all pans out, I smell another Obama scandal and possibly lawsuit in the works ...
They want to make it where you cannot un-elect them. Even if the GOP comes to power how would they undo it?
