Another CT Post Political Writer
AKA "CT Blogger" Is Also Being Used As A Tool By Jim Himes's Campaign Manager Mark Henson
On August 11th Greenwich Roundup Exposed How Hearst Newspaper's Plagiarizing Political Writer Jonathan Kantrowitz Had Cut And Paste An Entire Post From A One Of Jim Himes' Fundraising Emails.
Less Than 48 Hours Later A New One Of Jim Himes' Campaign Emails Was Sent Out, But Greenwich Roundup Was No No Longer On The Email List.
But That's OK Partisan Blogger

CT-04: "Independent" Himes goes on offense
Fri Aug 13, 2010 at 09:39:35 AM EDT
I guess it's fair to say that Jim Himes has no problem throwing the first punch...
Today, in an email to his supporters, the congressman for the fourth district premiered a new ad on Facebook that focuses on two points:
Himes is a lawmaker who's not lock in step with the Democratic majority and
His opponent Dan Debicella is a reckless, extreme right Republican.
via Himes' email:
I've spent the 20 months I have been in Congress working hard to create jobs, reduce wasteful spending, and protect families, the environment, and consumers.
We will face an important choice this fall. We can either continue the progress that helped save us from the brink of another great Depression or return to the failed policies that drained retirement accounts, resulted in record foreclosures, and let organizations like BP run wild with no oversight.
It is absolutely essential that voters understand this choice.
For Over A Year Greenwich Roundup Has Published Both Of Jim Jim Himes And More Recently We Have Published Dan Debicella's Emails Unedited Without Comment.
During The Republican Primary We Published Rick Torres' Campaign Emails And Invited Rob Merkle To Send In His Emails.
We Put The Emails At Out Unedited, Because Republican Campaigns Only Target Republican Voters And Democratic Campaigns Only Target Democratic Voters.
Worse, Yet There Is A Bias In The Mainstream Media, So It Is Important To Let Both Sides Be Heard Unedited.
However, It Appears That The Jim Himes Wants To Leave The Debate, Because One Of His Partisan Connecticut Post Writers Was Caught Plagiarizing.
If He Wants To Ignore The 2,900 Daily Unique Website Visitors Here At Greenwich Roundup And The 5,850 Daily Unique Visitors At The Other Roundup News Blogs, Then That Is His Choice.
But In This Close Fourth Congressional Race Congressman Himes Might Come To Wish That He Chose To Ignore Thousands Of Highly Motivated Readers Who Are Interested In Local Politics And Events.
