Last week Dana Loesch attacked Peter Kinder's primary opponent, Brad Lager, over $51,850 that Lager received from Cerner in his 2008 bid for Missouri Treasurer. Loesch implies throughout that Lager's campaign coffers are tainted with the 2009 stimulus funding that Cerner received. Here's a screen grab--note the dates in the red boxes:
Let me slow this point down for Loesch's legions of lackeys who will undoubtedly leave comments below defending her anachronistic idiocy: donations for a campaign which concluded in November of 2008 could not have been made with stimulus dollars issued in 2009; however, 2012 campaigns are another matter.
A little over a month ago, in a May 31st email (above) Lt. Governor Peter Kinder's campaign solicted donations from Cerner, a privately owned company specializing in healtcare IT systems. The attachment mentioned in the email is now available on Scribd.
Will Loesch now invite Kinder on her radio show to explain why he was soliciting "stimulus-tainted" donations from Cerner last month?
Interestingly, Mark Reardon covered this story on his radio show on KMOX. Reardon admited that the Kinder campaign tipped him off (hat tip: Ozarks Politics). One implication of that fact is that Dana Loesch is running Kinder's press releases under her by line over at Breitbart.com.
At the risk of being accused of burying the lede I have to ask, is it really any wonder that Loesch is no longer the Editor-in-Chief of Big Journalism? Perhaps as a one-time media watchdog she should spend a few minutes writing a press release about that organizational change.
