Ross Kaminsky ‘corrects’ Maes supporter’s claims about attempts to get Dan Maes to quit
Did a Dan Maes supporter try to entrap gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo into making a deal with Dan Maes so that Maes would quit the race? Or was he really trying to make a deal without realizing that it would be illegal and that it would look like a last desperate effort to smear Tancredo?
Ross Kaminsky over at http://www.rossputin.com outs himself as the prominent (conservative) blogger who he alleges was approached by a Joe Harrington who is (was) a friend of Kaminsky and is a Maes supporter.
Both Harrington and Kaminsky say Tancredo and his staff knew nothing about their discussions and e-mails. Kaminsky does not work for or speak for Tancredo. He's just a supporter.
Since the story is long, complex and interesting, you've got to read Kaminksy's description of what happened in his post, Correcting Joe Harrington's claims about the Dan Maes non-deal, by Ross Kaminsky. Blogger: I never offered Maes money to quit the race, by Lynn Bartels. Evidence indicates any deal-seeking came from Dan Maes' direction, by Ben DeGRow. Dan Maes on Facebook. And: No deal! Tell that hypocritical, draft dodging, TARP voting, pot endorsing, thug to get out of the race, by Joseph Harrington. This is the Facebook posting that started this story.
