The Pink Flamingo is rather pleased that the rest of the conservative world is finally starting to see that their once precious little darling is nothing but a back-biting petty little creep who will stop at nothing to harm anyone who opposes him.
He treated Lindsey like dirt a few months ago, and the same bunch who saw him as the 2nd coming of Reagan, criticized Lindsey.
Now, though, Sanford has been caught in the act.
Several days ago rumors once again surfaced that SC’s Lt. Governor Andre Bauer is gay. The Palmetto Scoop now has proof that Sanford was behind the rumors. Baur had recently gone on record demanding Sanford man-up and resign. Unfortunately, Sanford doesn’t realize that there is more to being a man than shacking up with some little hottie from Argentina.
“...“During the last two months, we have discovered plenty of solid reasons to remove our current governor from office; but now there’s one more reason: the people trying to keep Sanford in power have stooped to a new low with this week’s false character assassination of Bauer,” Knotts wrote.
A national blogger wrote Monday that Bauer is secretly gay and that multiple male sources had confirmed having sexual relations with the lieutenant governor.
Knotts said individuals close to Sanford were behind the attacks, which he said were “100 percent false.”
“As a former target of a false rumor started by the Sanford Camp I can tell you with absolute certainty this attack was orchestrated on behalf of Mark Sanford, either directly or indirectly, and financially subsidized by him or one of his many ‘front-groups,’” Knotts wrote.
Knotts noted that he was the subject of similar Sanford-backed smears when “a former Sanford employee and political consultant made a totally false claim about me, designed only to damage my character and reputation and embarrass my family.”…”
There is more. Jake Knotts sent out a “dear collegue” letter as part of his press statement:
“…These same Sanford associates, no longer trusted by the local bloggers turned to a National blog to continue to spread their filth and lies, this time about Lt. Governor Andre Bauer. As one of Andre’s closest friends having known him since he was eight years old, I am 100% certain the rumor is false. There are numerous other witnesses who will attest the rumor is without any merit whatsoever. Using my background as an investigator, I noted so many inconsistencies in the original blog statement that I would have immediately concluded the blogger was lying even if I did not know Andre.
The timing of this smear campaign is obviously not a coincidence. Last week, Lt. Governor Andre Bauer called on Governor Mark Sanford to resign, and last weekend, the House Republican Caucus decided almost unanimously to move forward to ask Governor Sanford resign from office, under threat of impeachment. Two days later, the National blogger devised a carefully-crafted smear – intentionally worded to deceive the public about Andre — which was immediately spread across the Internet by Sanford associates and former staffers….”
One of these days, the libertarians, Ron Paul Bots, and far right will realize what the rest of us have known for quite some time. Mark Sanford cannot be trusted. His little bunch of flunkies are the ones who constantly attack Lindsey.
Maybe you’d better get a grip and realize you’ve been sold a bill of false goods and a bunch of lies.
