From Think Progress:
Yesterday, ThinkProgress reported that there was mounting evidence that a staffer for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) may have been involved in the right-wing campaign to smear Graeme Frost and his family.
ABC News reported earlier in the week that an e-mail sent to reporters by “a Senate Republican leadership aide” in McConnell’s office suggested that “GOP aides were complicit in spreading disparaging information about the Frosts.” A McConnell spokesman refused to deny the office’s involvement in the affair.
ThinkProgress has obtained an email that congressional sources tell us was sent to reporters by Sen. McConnell’s communications director Don Stewart.
What the hell is this? The most powerful senator in the United States has his communications director rely on blogs for information used to falsely attack children? When did the private lives of non-officials become fair game in political smear stunts? Do we really want to go there? Because we will if we must.
Mr. Stewart must resign and McConnell needs to apologize. Now.
Where’s the mainstream media on this?
