Mr. Yanukovych hired the swiftboaters PR firm, what strange bedfellows
It seems presidential type candidates can do some weird stuff!!!

snip...

So, first the list of firms and individuals, who worked on behalf and for Mr. Yanukovych in the United States in 2003 and 2004:
- Venable, LLP, registration number 5435;
- Potomac Communications Strategies, In, registration number 5588;
- Creative Response Concepts, file was not submitted;
- DB Communications, LLC, registration number 5634;
- JWI, LLC, registration number 4990;
- Aleksei Kiselev, registration number 5572.

snip...

In its turn, Potomac Communications Strategies hired a subcontractor to do the job of promoting Mr. Yanukovych. Creative Response Concepts is paid $10,000 to set up the press breakfast and to seek interview opportunities. It was that shameful press breakfast at the National Press Club in Washington DC in October 2003, at which both the UP Editor-in-Chief and the UP Washington Correspondent had been denied access by some Peter Robbio of Creative Response Concepts, a paid foreign agent of Mr. Yanukovych in the US, who hurled his own body to physically block the entrance to the press breakfast, thus declaring the event to be "for American press only", and thus off limits for Ukrayinska Pravda.

3. Creative Response Concepts? Oh, brother!

That's Greg Mueller's PR firm. It was intimately involved in the CBS memo flap as the firm that publicized "Buckhead's" phony claim that the memos were forged using MSWord. Mueller has been closely connected for years with L. Brent Bozell, who passed along the memo claims to Drudge. See http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Mueller was previously with the PR firm of Craig Shirley, who produced the 1988 Willie Horton ad and was recently a spokesman for "Stolen Honor." Mueller was also part of Bozell's fanatically anti-communist World Freedom Foundation back in the 80's. At that time, he had connections with Moon-related organizations, like Christian Voice and the American Freedom Coalition. See http://rightweb.irc-online.org/groupwatch/wff.php

This is not a good thing.
