Senate Minority Leader Fuels the Flames
ThinkProgress got the email that Mitch McConnell’s staffer claimed he had not sent out.
Seen the latest blogswarm? Apparently, thereâ€™s more to the story on thekid (Graeme Frost) that did the Demsâ€™ radio response on SCHIP. Bloggershave done a little digging and turned up that the Dad owns his ownbusiness (and the building itâ€™s in), seems to have some commercialrental income and Graeme and a sister go to a private school that,according to its website, costs about $20k a year â€¹for each kidâ€¹despite the news profiles reporting a family income of only $45k forthe Frosts. Could the Dems really have done that bad of a job vettingthis family?
Gosh. You think maybe the mainstream press, which claims to pride itself on its accuracy, will admit that this smear was not solely blog-driven?
Don’t answer that.
