Can You Smell What Linda McMahon’s $50 Million Is Cooking? Roll Call’s Story on Linda’s Lobbying Lie Is Buried

Except for a single tweet by the Hartford Courant’s Capitol Watch blog (which did not post an item on the same subject on the blog itself), there has not been, by my reckoning, a single substantial pick-up of the Roll Call report about video of Linda McMahon, in Waterbury in April, telling tea partiers that she has not lobbied.

Richard Blumenthal dribbles some politician’s b.s. about his military record – on which he deserved to get proportionately called out, by the way – and The New York Times goes all sticky-wet.

But a near-billionaire owner of a publicly traded corporation spends $50 million on her Senate campaign as an “outsider,” and lies about the company’s million dollars of lobbying expenditures, and it’s just another day at the carny-politico office.

For those of you who haven’t caught up with the Roll Call piece, probably through no fault of your own, see “Worse Than Minimum-Wage-Gate: Linda McMahon Lied About Lobbying $$$,” https://wrestlingbabylon.wordpress.com/2010/09/30/%E2%80%98worse-than-minimum-wage-gate%E2%80%99-linda-mcmahon-lied-about-lobbying/, and “Background on Roll Call Expose of Linda McMahon’s Lie About Lobbying,” https://wrestlingbabylon.wordpress.com/2010/09/30/background-on-roll-call-expose-of-linda-mcmahons-lie-about-lobbying/.
