A Smear Campaign! I'm honored!!!

Tonight, someone hiding behind the nom de plume "Michael Hahn" circulated an email alleging that I contributed to Republican Woody Jenkins' campaign in the 6th Congressional District. The email contained the image you see above, which purports to be a money order that I sent to the Jenkins campaign.

There is no doubt that Jenkins got the money. But the money did not come from me.

I have never voted for a Republican — nor ever contributed to a Republican campaign.

This is a smear campaign.

I guess this is my official welcome into Louisiana Democratic Party politics.

Thanks, "Mr. Hahn," for the honor!

Mike, this is bizarre, awesome, and hilarious for a few reasons:

Woody Jenkins can't accept "anonymous" money orders. He was running for United States Congress. Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't there some disclosure statements you would have needed to sign before he could have placed your name on his campaign finance reports?

This means someone completely forged a money order, took a picture of it, scanned it in, uploaded it on the Internet, and disseminated it via e-mail simply to impugn you.

Bizarre. And indeed, worthy of congratulations. Obviously people are listening.
