Skip to comments.Heard on the Hill: Hot-Button E-Mail
Posted on 10/06/2009 10:06:53 PM PDT by fidelio
Army Col. Conrad Reynolds is one of several Republicans vying to take on Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D) for Arkansas Senate seat in 2010. Reynolds campaign issued a press release last week blasting Lincoln for a vote, and among those who received it was Greg Chance, the news director of an NPR affiliate based at Arkansas State University.
It seems Chance attempted to forward the e-mail to Katie Laning Niebaum, Lincolns Washington-based communications director. In his forward, which HOH obtained, Chance mocked the press release and even the campaigns logo, which features the Army colonel insignia.
There was another one from this nimrod earlier today which I lost. I just love his logo. That ought to go over really well with the enlisted people. (ha ha), he writes.
One problem: Chance must have hit the reply button instead, because his message went straight to Kenneth Ryan James, the campaigns spokesman.
Not surprisingly, James did not find Chances e-mail terribly amusing. We dont necessarily appreciate Mr. Chance calling Col. Reynolds, who commanded troops in Baghdad, among other things, a nimrod, James told HOH.
James still hasnt responded to Chances e-mail. But he argues it was a conflict of interest for Chance to send Laning Niebaum the message, pointing out that his e-mail account is taxpayer-funded through the university. James also questioned whether Lincolns Senate office solicited the e-mail.
HOHs multiple attempts to reach Chance were unsuccessful. But we did get in touch with Laning Niebaum.
That is an interesting allegation from the Reynolds campaign, Laning Niebaum said. I did not receive the e-mail you referenced. Sen. Lincolns office has never solicited a reporter for any materials from a possible opponents campaign.

LIE-beral News Media BIAS ALERT.
I think Blanche Lincoln is going to lose.
No, no - we in the media aren’t biased and working against you wingnuts.
Now f**k off and have a nice day. :)
-your friends in the media
No Arkansas NPR bias alert!
A derivitive of the DeHavalid Comet 4. This Nimrod could also drop an active seeking torpedo on you. It could ruin your whole day if you were a submarine. The civilian version of this Aircraft was a piece of art and beauty.
Is that an F-111 in the background in the sky? If so that could be at RAF Lakenheath in the British Midlands.
She deserves to lose. The only time she sets foot in Arkansas is for a fund-raiser or to campaign. She and her doctor husband and twin boys live in Virginia. Her husband's practice is in Virginia.
Look like a Jaguar to me
