Grassroots Fee-veh: Fake Doctor Plant Invited to Event By Obama Campaign Office Manager (Who You've Met -- the Che Guevera Fan)

But this is certainly not astroturfing. An Obama campaign office manager invites a lead organizer for Organizing for America Obama and lies about being a doctor to provide an Obama supporting Representative with the "cover" of authority but...

... it's not astroturfing.

Astroturfing is only what you do.

By the Way: The Chron runs a decent piece about this, finally. This time, they admit she's an Obama delegate, but of course they don't mention she's a lead organizer for Obama's astroturf organization, Organizing for America.

If they mentioned that, it would raise too many questions they don't want people wondering about, I guess.

But the link is barely visible on the front page. All the way down the the "Houston & Texas" section.

Burying it.

Now, they will say, "How much press do you think this is worth? It's just one person lying?"

Well, we don't know it's just one person lying just yet.

Further, it is the White House itself (and Nancy Pelosi and the DNC and the MSM as a whole) that has been pushing the "astroturfing" claim for two weeks.

The Chron finally has proof of a real live astroturfer, and they.... bury it?

Funny, I don't think that would be their response if they found a conservative-leaning astroturfer sent by the insurance industry.

I think they'd be proclaiming their scoop from the rooftops, not hiding it.
