UPDATE!From Bruce Kessler:
Click here: The Jawa Report: Hope, Change, & Lies: Orchestrated "Grassroots" Smear Campaigns & the People that Run Them
Within an hour of this post going up, YouTube videos implicating Ethan Winner were yanked, sockpuppet accounts deleted, and more importantly, the Wikipedia entry on David Axelrod began to edit out mentions of his well knowN astroturfing campaigns. Hmmm, it sounds to me like we're on to something.
A BlogFire has erupted over a new investigation conducted by Dr. Rusty Shackleford at The Jawa Report - suggesting that the Sarah Palin smears including reports she was a member of the Alaska Independence Party (advocating secession from the union) and has radical anti-American views begins and ends with the Obama campaign.
Must Reading here.
If the allegations of cyber ambush prove to be true, the Federal Elections Commission must get involved. The "astroturfing" or making it appear as if the smears began organically on the 'net instead of orchestrated by a political PR firm is morally wrong ....and it's illegal.
Stay clicked for further developments.
This is gonna be a Big One, folks.
