    Democrat tipped blogger about Republican lawmaker meeting with white nationalists

    isn't politics wonderful.

    ------------------------

    NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The campaign manager of a Democrat who challenged U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana tipped off a blogger that the Republican lawmaker had spoken to a white supremacist group in 2002.

    However, Democrat Gilda Reed did not expose the meeting during the 2008 special election for the House seat because she believed it would not sway the district’s conservative electorate.

    “I felt strongly that it would not have walked,” Reed told Reuters on Wednesday. "I was running in a district with a lot of bigots."

    Good journalism, huh?

    Don't release the story because it wouldn't change the results of an election.

    Then, after sitting on the story, release it when they think it can do the most harm.

    That's politics in 2014, oops 2015.

    Business as usual.

    And both sides do it.
    Thanks from MaryAnne and Snikitz
