Earlier, I wrote about the Swiftboat machine that Forrester’s camp is gearing up to smear Jon Corzine.
Please welcome the newest member of the smear machine: Enlighten-NJ. They’re setting the stage for media outlets to pick up on unsubstantiated rumors:
…itâ€™ll make Jim McGreevey look like a Cub Scout compared to Jon Corzine.
The fact that the Forrester camp is using Enlighten to put out this information means they can’t get anyone respectable to bite.
The lies that Enlighten refers to originated on online message boards from anonymous posts and have already been repeated on NJ 101.5 radio. These smears are salacious. (Note: I’ve removed one of the rumors I mentioned here before. They are gross, unsubstantiated smears and don’t even deserve repeating. Also, it appears that the link to the nj.com board is no longer working – the smear appears to have been removed from their site as well.)
Then there are idiots like Michelle Malkin who claim that Jon Corzine has been buying the votes of blacks. Last time I checked, it was the other party that was struggling with support from African Americans.
These people know they’re about to lose, and rather than do it with dignity, they are choosing to smear Jon Corzine’s name with rumors and lies. They aren’t worthy of licking the bottom of his boots.
They are lies, which is why they haven’t been repeated by any reputable news organizations. To the mainstream media – thanks for keeping these nonsensical rumors out of your pages.
Update: In the comments, Frogsdong reminds us that Enlighten is no stranger to smear tactics. In fact, it’s all he knows.
