Patrick Hynes, Karl Rove, and Roger Stone dig for information
Patrick Hynes former political director at the New Hampshire Republican Committee.

That much I do know. I need democratic underground people to find links between Patrick Hynes with any of the two mentioned and any other person that has been part of the CBS Memo scandel.

Information collected and already known. This wil explain why I'm wanting all democratic underground members to research for connections. We know that this person has had a lot of inside information. Patrick Hynes might be our link to explain more how prepaired their bloogers were to attack CBS Memos.

1. On 9/9, from his website Crushkerry.com Hynes wrote a "memo" to Rove
advising that he should "turn Kerry into a joke."

3. Apparently, we've been busted, busting them - fresh from their website
Crushkerry.com Targeted-Pt.II:

"We're Busted. We've been found out. The radicals at Dem. Underground have the proof that our website was part of the conspiracy behind "Rathergate" And we would have gotten away with it - if it wasn't for those meddling kids!"

Then it posts the same link as you posted in this thread.

BTW, the original post contains a link to an article that includes info about Mellon Scaife, but you may want to check that address. The link didn't work for me, but I want to read it. He's behind half of the RW power, w/Rove behind the other...

Did you notice your "bloogers" typo? LOL!!!

8. Didn't even realize I spelled it that way.
Didn't mean to, but I didn't get much sleep last night. Been trying to find the connection all night.

5. Indirect link with Move America Forward
Hynes is currently Senior Account Executive and chief copywriter with Marsh Copsey + Scott. This Republican consulting firm was formerly (until 2002) part of Russo Marsh Copsey and Scott, which is now Russo Marsh and Rogers.

http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=Russo_Mars...

Russo Marsh and Rogers (RM+R) is a political public relations firm based in Sacramento, California.

In June 2004, RM+R formed a front organization called Move America Forward. Its stated aim was to "to stand up and support the brave men and women of our Armed Forces" <1>. However its chief preoccupation seemed to be a campaign against the showing of Fahrenheit 9/11 (movie 2004) in movie theaters.

RM+R also appears to trade under the name King Media Group. The website of King Media Group shows a nearly identical list of principals to that of RM+R, and it operates from the same postal address.

7. Hynes also previously with Russo, Marsh, Copsey & Scott
http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m2519/is_7_22...
September 2001

Sonny Scott has joined the Republican media firm Russo, Marsh & Copsey as partner, and the firm is re-named Russo, Marsh, Copsey & Scott. Scott comes from the National Republican congressional Committee, where he worked on top-targeted races in the 2000 election season. The firm - which has offices in Washington, D.C., Sacramento, CA and Atlanta, GA - has also promoted Patrick Hynes to account executive and Leif Larson to production manager and account executive....

9. Interesting Patrick Hynes story from 2002 campaign
It seems that Hynes was serving as press secretary for a Republican candidate in New Hampshire, even though he was working for Russo, Marsh, Copsey & Scott down in Washington, DC. He denied that he was actually working on behalf of the National Republican Congressional Committee, but this columnist is highly skeptical of that claim.


http://www.seacoastonline.com/2002news/08272002/col_cap...

An editorial that appeared in the Portsmouth Herald last week brought up something from the Corners "Just How Involved Is the National Party?" file.

The editorial was critical of Republican 1st District Congressional candidate Sean Mahoney of Portsmouth ... The newspaper editorial called Mahoney either extremely dense or verging on insanity for his statements, but instead of getting a call from the candidate or his campaign chairman, the paper was contacted by Mahoneys press secretary Patrick Hynes.

<snip>

However, the interesting part of all this was that Hynes works for a Republican PR firm - Russo, Marsh, Copsey and Scott - located not in New Hampshire or even Massachusetts, but inside the Beltway in Washington, D.C. Hynes described himself as a Republican operative and former Laconia native, but denied he was working for Mahoney on behalf of the National Republican Congressional Committee, the official arm of the national Republican Party.

The NRCC has said it would remain neutral in the congressional primary race, but would be active in the general election and in putting out information that could be detrimental to Clark even before a Republican nominee was chosen. But that raises the question of why Mahoney would chose a Washington-based PR firm to do his publicity. Just how connected could an inside-the-Beltway firm be to what is going on in New Hampshire?
