Move over Joe - Palestra.net reporters are the new targets of the left

If you've been following the issues of voter registration verification and voter fraud in Ohio on my blog, you'll recognize the names Tiffany Wilson and Shelby Holliday as reporters for Palestra.net, a college broadcast news service.

They've done tremendous work investigating and exposing out-of-state campaign workers who registered and cast ballots in Ohio, even though they are not eligible to do so. As a result of their inquiries, some of the ineligible voters have withdrawn both their registrations and ballots - but not all have done so.

Since posting the proof of voter fraud, there have been numerous searches on the individual names of these potentially fraudulent voters that ended up on my blog. The Ohio Democrat Party, and its supporters, seem to find my posts on voter fraud particularly interesting, as my tracking shows that they accessed these posts from emails they've received. And they're not taking the exposure well.

According to Greta Van Susteren's blog, GretaWire, these intrepid college reporters are being threatened by one of Sen. Barack Obama's campaign lawyers.

From the post:

So what is the students’ reward for exposing crime??? An intimidating letter from the Senator Obama campaign lawyer to one of the students?? See below and then you tell me…

Hello,

I’ve been looking into temporary residents registering to vote in
Ohio, and came across a _______ in _____ where four
voters are registered, one of whom Tiffany Wilson, your reporter, who
has returned an absentee ballot in Columbus. Is she a permanent
resident of Columbus?

Joe Knapp
Columbus

Rather than address the fact that some people supportive of Obama have registered and voted incorrectly, these Obama campaign workers want to demonize the individuals who've exposed them. Just like Joe the Plumber who, in asking a simple question of a presidential candidate who came into his neighborhood to campaign, ended up with various government agencies running illegal background checks on him.

Joe Knapp, as indicated above, seems inclined to challenge whether or not Tiffany Wilson is properly registered to cast a ballot in Ohio, since she's a student here. But Knapp had better be careful about going that route, considering the vast number of Ohio students liberal organizations have registered. If Wilson's not a valid Ohio voter, then none of those ACORN-registered students would be either...

The scary part of this whole scenario is the penchant for those on the left to attack the individuals sharing the truth with people. Silly me - I thought that's what the media was supposed to do.

To Tiffany and Shelby: keep up the good work! You know you're getting to them when they start attacking you personally. Also remember that when logic and reason no longer can support their positions, they resort to a personal attack. You two, and the rest of the Palestra.net reporters, are doing a great job!

I got to tip my hat to Shelby and Tiffany, they are doing the job the MSM is supposedto be doing. But if it hurts The ONE, the MSM is not going to go near it. But if it is Palin's wardrobe cost, hell that is fair game, but Voter Fraud, nothing here move along. They should get an award for doing this

My congratulations and hoist of a dry martini to Tiffany and Shelby.

Maggie,

Tiffany and Shelby have shown a courage in their investigation mostly unknown in the "mass" media these days. The attacks however, are hardly a surprise, having probably come directly from the Bill Clinton book of tactics. (Can you say Jennifer Flowers?)

Scott said...

Indeed, I hope they know how much their courage is appreciated.

Maggie, the new leftist version democracy is keeping your mouth shut.
Joe the plumber is a shining example of one little man who opened his mouth, questioned Obama and felt the wrath of the left come down on him.
Even though Obama totally blew the answer, his rabid supporters went after Joe the plumber.

Threaten a person's family, means of support, reputation and home and not only will he shut up and cease asking questions. He will serve as an example to anyone else who dares question Obama.
The same tactics were common in the East Blok countries and stifled dissent rather effectively.
Typical that Obama's base would use those tactics.
Tiffany and Shelby are doing the right thing but, may pay dearly for the endeavor with their jobs and reputations. And if they're in school, they might start failing classes they had once done well in.
