Jesse Macbeth 2.0

Remember all that vetting the IVAW did of their members prior to Winter Soldier and after the Jesse MacBeth fraud was outted? Uhuh!

Jonn Lilyea at This Ain't Hell e-mails this tip:

An escaped mental patient rose to prominence in the anti-war movement in Colorado until he was taken down by Denver FBI agents. His affiliations include, but are not limited to, Iraq Veterans Against the War and VoteVets. He endorsed anti-war Congressman Jared Polis and celebrated the 5th Anniversary of "Mission Accomplished" with Polis.

Read the whole story, and thanks Jonn!

And as with one at IVAW had any suspicions????? Same for VoteVets?

Denis : Nice story. I hope you can get something on the story that I sent you. A problem that almost all organizations have is incomplete vetting of their membership. Every one should remember that it is not your open enemy that you must look out for but the "friend" who is not all there. During the Goldwater campaign, we were approached by an interested citizen who wanted to help with out "get out the vote" effort. We were desperate for people that would go "door to door" but kept putting him off because something 'did not smell right." Turned out he was a KKK member seeking new converts.
