A Right Wing Surrogate

During the week of the 2004 Democratic Convention, KFNX 1100AM Bob Mohan is scraping the dusky bottom rungs of the right wing staircase of nuts in a blatant unabashed partisan stumping for George W. Bush. How else can his refusal to cite information on Ted Sampley's background and biography be accounted for? Mohan granted air time for the Sampley "Hanoi Kerry" soapbox.
Ted Sampley is head of the Vietnam Veterans Against Kerry and is responsible for the 1992 fake photo of John Kerry shooting an American MIA in Vietnam with the caption: Kerry eliminates another MIA from his discrepancy list. Sampley has a long history of working against both John Kerry & John McCain dating to the POW/MIA hearings. He even served jail time for starting a fight with John McCain's staff. Sampley was also given a restraining order.

Senator John McCain called Sampley one of the most despicable people I have ever had the misfortune to encounter.

"I strongly caution reporters who may be contacted by or are interested in Mr. Ted Sampley and the various organizations he claims to represent, and his opinions on the subject of Senator Kerry, or any subject for that matter, to investigate thoroughly Mr. Sampley's background and history of spreading outrageous slander and other disreputable behavior before inadvertently lending him or his allegations any credibility."

Mr. Mohan didn't share that with his audience, at least from what I heard on the radio today. A few callers challenged the guest and called him out calling Kerry a communist, but nobody shared the skinny on this crazed right wing operative.

Wow, Mohan, I guess you'll be turning to that same cesspoll to drudge up more bigoted right wing fantasy. Hey, why didn't you interview the woman who filed a rape lawsuit against GW Bush? Oh, I forgot, she committed suicide. Just like Vince Foster. Down the conspiracy rabbit whole we go.
