Lee Fang’s Baseless Attack on Chamber Recedes into the Fever Swamp

Today the Daily Caller has a follow up story on the “foreign money” non-story kicked off several weeks ago by a blogger at Think Progress. Midway through the story comes this admission:

Several Democrats, including in Senate leadership, have told TheDC that the foreign money charge was a stretch. One Democrat Wednesday called it “a bit specious.”

DeeDee Myers, who was White House press secretary under former President Bill Clinton, said that she thinks “it’s the idea of ‘secret’ money that’s gotten people’s attention.”

In other words, this was a non-story promoted by the professional left for one purpose, to create a villain suitable for public consumption. And as Greg Sargent has gleefully pointed out, it may even have worked to some degree. Voters are concerned about this media invention and donations are up. Having achieved its aim this ripe bundle of nonsense can now recede back into the fever swamp from which it came.
