GOP FRINGE GROUP FAKES IT FOR AKIN!!!
Check a mainstream media newsie disagreement today regarding embattled Missouri Senate Candidate Todd Akin.
While we've repeatedly linked to national newsies noting that the Akin camp is old and busted and out of cash.
In Missouri there's a glimmer of hope . . . Or not.
Earlier today KMBC's Mike Mahoney broke news of a group announcing a quarter mill worth of support for Akin . . .
Conservative Group, Freedom Defense Fund, to Spend $250K in Missouri Senate Race
A few minutes later The Star's Dave Helling finished lunch and noted that the group doesn't have that kind of cash in the bank according to finance reports . . .
"If the group has that much to invest in the race, it will have raised virtually all of it in the last 60 days, federal records suggest. As of July 18, Freedom's Defense Fund had $128,148 cash on hand, according to FEC records. But it also owed $116,064, leaving roughly $12,000 in the bank."
In the final analysis . . . Once again it seems that Todd Akin can only bring discord and angst among any constituency.
Even worse . . .
FAKING CAMPAIGN CASH OR GETTING CAUGHT UP IN SOMEBODY ELSE FAKING IT REVEALS THAT TODD AKIN IS EXCEEDINGLY DESPERATE . . . BUT WE ALREADY KNEW THAT!!! BUT THE BLUFF STILL HURTS AKIN IN THE LONG RUN!!!
So, in the end not much has changed . . .
Nearly unbelievable GOP incompetence has handed a race to exceptionally politically vulnerable Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill who everybody expected to lose.
DEVELOPING . . .
