CREW takes down DiFi corruption thread - Updated
Update: Google/Yahoo cached version of the story "disappears"
Attorney Sloan, where is this page? www.citizensforethics.org/node/19923.
CREW: Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington uses high-impact legal actions to target government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests, or, so states the website’s self-description.
After leading the charge along with the NYT against Mark Foley (R-FL), it must have come as quite a shock to the radical left to see a popular Democrat come into CREW’s cross-hairs in a January 25 expose of the Feinstein - MILCON scandal. Still, CREW stood by their story, which was linked or referenced by scores of conservative websites.
So what changed? It’s not like anyone really believed that the Soros-funded “CREW” was anything but a partisan hit site. Maybe it’s a testament to the Digg Effect. Four days after the CREW article was posted on Digg, and some 900 diggs, the thread disappeared. Only Melanie Sloan knows for sure. Perhaps Sloan, a Democrat activist lawyer, decided that being true to her Democrat roots is more important than the high-minded mission statement of supporting ethics in government.
Here is the Google cache of the original story.
How long will the MSM continue to ignore this important story? As long as they can, of course.
