This morning, you might have seen an article about me and my blogging on Atlanta Progressive News.com. While most of the article is correct — except for that part at the end about me donning camouflage attire, wearing nightvision goggles and being a covert campaign operative trying to steal secrets from former state Sen. Donzella James’ congressional campaign offices — there are three important things that Matthew Cardinale, news editor for Atlanta Progressive News, failed to mention.
1.) In 2006, Atlanta Progressive News received $145 from former Democratic Secretary of State candidate Angela Moore right before they endorsed her candidacy [Sources: State Ethics Commission; Atlanta Progressive News, “APN Issues Candidate Endorsements for 2006, Update 1”, July 6, 2006];
2.) This year, Atlanta Progressive News received $280 from the congressional campaign of former state Senator Donzella James and…big shocker…they endorsed her too [Sources: Federal Elections Commission; Atlanta Progressive News, “APN Announces 2008 Primary Endorsements for US House and Senate”, June 22, 2008]; and finally,
3.) Atlanta Progressive News endorsed “Able” Mable Thomas for Congress after they received $150 from the Thomas for Congress campaign [Sources: Federal Elections Commission; Atlanta Progressive News, “APN Announces 2008 Primary Endorsements for US House and Senate”, June 22, 2008].
Based on these three pieces of important information, it appears that the endorsement of Atlanta Progressive News is up for sale and for that reason, their criticisms leveled against me are somewhere near the top of Mount Hypocrisy.
The entire piece is laughable.
