REVEALED - Criminal Acts occurred at the Office of Faith Based Initiatives
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 11:17 AM by ck4829
MSNBCs Keith Olberman got his hands on a forthcoming book written by David Kuo, the former second-in-command in the White Houses Office of Faith Based Initiatives.

National Christian leaders received hugs and smiles in person and then were dismissed behind their backs and described as ridiculous, out of control, and just plain goofy, Kuo writes.

More seriously, Kuo alleges that then-White House political affairs director Ken Mehlman knowingly participated in a scheme to use the office, and taxpayer funds, to mount ostensibly nonpartisan events that were, in reality, designed with the intent of mobilizing religious voters in 20 targeted races.

According to Kuo, Ken loved the idea and gave us our marching orders.

3. Well, that is the main reason for a "faith based iniative"
other than getting rid of government programs that benefit the poor and such. That being, a GOTV machine.

4. What have these hypocritical bastards NOT corrupted?
I'd love to see Ken Mehlman spin, crash, and burn.

6. Right Wingers Compromised Their Morality
by clinging to fanaticism and authoritarianism. There is NOTHING spiritual or good left in these people... they have sold out all morality by aligning themselves with the most evil administration this nation has ever seen. What they say about God and morality is pure shit...

8. Is it finally being said by someone high enough up the chain for action?
People have been saying this since nearly the launch of the faith-based initiatives... special treatment to groups of certain religious ties and in key POLITICAL areas. No one has even bothered to wipe their nose on the story.
