Abbe,

Can one take a story from a White House Press Release and openly make it their own nearly verbatim? The GAO must thinks so but that is so ridiculous. On his site, he writes -

June 10, 2005 GAO rules Gannongate did not violate propaganda law

"The General Accounting Office told House morons Rep. John Conyers and Rep. Louise Slaughter that Gannongate did not violate a federal propaganda law. More vindication! LETTER"

GAO's decision: http://www.gao.gov/decisions/appro/304829.htm

Doesn't this man have a media consultant? What are you messing with him for? He is really an idiot to "crib" these documents verbatim before leaving Talon News as a freelancer, and then say that he is "vindicated". I mean, how stupid is that?

After all of the advice that you have graciously given him, my advice to you is "move on".
