Lieberman Hack Attack Proved A Phony: "Will They Apologize?"

You gotta hand it to the Lieberman camp. They played the media like dupes---easy marks. When Holy Joe's site went down on the day of the election

hb-lamont.jpeg You gotta hand it to the Lieberman camp. They played the media like dupes---easy marks. When Holy Joe's site went down on the day of the election, we all knew what had happened because---we're bloggers and actually maintain websites. Check out my entries on 08/08/06 that followed the day. Now it's finally official.

The U.S. attorney's office and state attorney general have cleared former U.S. Senate candidate Ned Lamont and his supporters of any role in the crash of U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman's campaign Web site hours before last summer's Democratic primary. State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal confirmed the joint investigation "found no evidence of tampering or sabotage warranting civil action by my office." Both men declined to provide additional information, such as what might have happened to the site.

Calls to Lieberman went unanswered yesterday.

I remembered this clip of Matthews badgering Ned about the phony hack story like he had some magical influence to alter things---when really all Joe Lieberman had to do was pay a few bucks more and his website would have been fine. Will they all apologise now for their behavior? Will they?

Lieberman and Dan Gerstein accomplished their mission, and they'll never have to answer for all the crap they pulled to make it happen -- from the many lies, to the hundreds of thousands of dollars in street money they spent without reporting to the FEC.
