UPDATED: Who really wrote the objectionable content ?Submitted by oneof5 on Tue, 12/27/2011 - 04:25
..... well, maybe the guy that is now screaming the loudest:
The following is a partial quote from some comments by Jake Witmer (who apparently knows Eric personally) on a blog that was posted 30 weeks ago:
"I strongly suspect that Dondero was the racist element of Paul's "newsletter days" office, and that he slipped some of his sabotage into the newsletters (or at least encouraged it). Lew Rockwell was the editor then, and perhaps less aware than Eric of the damage it would later do to Paul. (So, Eric, as a backstabbing saboteur, may have been fairly effective. I can easily see him thinking "Lew's the editor, he'll take the blame for this, if I can just convince him it increases fundraising, or sneak it past him when he's overworked!")."
There's a lot more info about Dondero and his apparent propensity for sabotaging various political endeavors he is in close proximity to, in just that one comment by Jake. Being a one-man walking and talking disaster, it is apparently the one thing that Dondero is quite good at - a man who is quite capable and willing to be your own personal Judas.
You can read the blog article and the comments there - but just be quick about it - keep your eyes on the prize and get back to work [grin]:
I have some other stuff on Dondero that's not quite ready for prime time yet - I'll keep workin' it and pullin' the string ....
UPDATE: Jake Witmer's Christmas Present to Eric Dondero
... a rather large lump of coal in the stocking - some tasty snippets:
"Dondero is a disgruntled former staffer of Paul's who was fired for disavowing Paul's noninterventionist stance on foreign policy. Later, after being fired, he threatened to run against Paul, before he realized he was delusional and didn't stand a snowball's chance in Haiti of beating Paul.
2) Ron Paul fired Dondero when Dondero started claiming at press-releases and public events that Paul had reversed his position, and favored the Iraq war. Paul had to yell at him and remind him "You work for me." (Not a lot of people have seen Paul this angry, which further points to how principled the man is.)
8) Interestingly, Eric Dondero is also a racist eugenicist. He stated to me at one point, in 2004, "Blacks aren't as smart as whites." I roundly criticized him for this, and he tried to justify it by referencing "The Bell Curve," by Charles Murray ...."
