    Judge stops investigation into Battleground Texas

    Battleground Texas, who is supporting Wendy Davis in her run for Governor of Texas was being investigated because of James O'Keefe's latest video.

    “The Veritas video was little more than a canard and political disinformation,” the prosecutor’s report said. “The video was particularly unprofessional when it suggested that the actions of Battleground Texas were advocated by a Texas gubernatorial candidate and that the actions of a single volunteer deputy registrar may even involve private health data, which is not involved in the voter registration process.”

    Angelini and Del Prado referred all questions to Economidy.

    “We looked at the facts, we applied the law and the round object would not fit into the small square hole,” Economidy said. “The law is or it isn’t. It either fits or it doesn’t fit, and it didn’t fit one bit.”

    Since he has had to pay damages to people he misrepresented in his ACORN video and now this, can we please stop taking anything he is presenting as truthful?

    Truth is like a diamond. No one owns the whole thing, though it's the same light that shines through all facets. The more we can step back and see other people's facets, the more beauty and truth we can appreciate.

    Yeah, this was surprising to absolutely nobody who's paid a lick of attention to this guy. James O'Keefe is a fraud.

    I wonder if the posters who breathlessly pimped this video as more "proof" of Democratic corruption will return to issue a mea culpa for believing in this known liar? Let's ask the Magic 8 Ball ...

    Just noticed that this being covered in the end of that 53 page thread I didn't read all the way through, shame on me.

    Sorry about posting a story already covered.

    Yea, O'Keefe is a hack and a liar, but I also have to tell you that Wendy Davis is fresh meat for the Republicans to chew on. I wonder why O'Keefe chose a loser to spread his BS propaganda on. 'Ya know. He might actually be helping her a little. LOL.

    He's a hack and a liar but most of the right wingers immediately believe every video he puts out despite the fact that all of them turn out to be bogus.
