Fourth: Reprising Dan Rather’s role in the 2004 forged George Bush National Guard letter, Democratic political consultant Grebner neglected to note that not one of his 2004-2010 “images” bears the secretary of state’s official number stamp. Blinded by partisan zeal (at best), Grebner never considers how, if the secretary of state routinely discarded past petitions, the saboteurs would have had no past petitions to cut and paste into the 2012 set. He never explains why anyone would go to such lengths to manufacture blatantly fraudulent petitions, when it is far easier to get valid signatures. He never performs the elementary analysis that reveals the vast bulk of fake “images,” planted phony copies at the vacant headquarters, and sabotaged 2012 petitions were created at the same time by the saboteurs as they cobbled together frauds out of past unfiled, photocopied petitions. Such willful negligence is why Grebner — though he has a partisan motive for manufacturing and disseminating the false “images” — has continued to accuse McCotter of sabotaging his own 2012 petitions, something McCotter had no motive to do.
Enough. It’s time Grebner came clean and revealed if he was willingly duped; and, if so, from whom and when he got these fake “images.”
Presently, though the alleged “past petitions” have never been and can never be “authenticated” by the secretary of state or the AG, the saboteurs’ smokescreen of self-serving lies under oath, planted phony copies, Grebner’s fake “images” (and the cold-blooded, deceitful set-up of three McCotter staffers as human shields to camouflage the sabotage) has so far succeeded. How?
Because too many powerful people have heedlessly agreed with the AG’s novel legal concept for this case: “Motive is immaterial.”
No. Motive matters. Accordingly, in bringing to justice the criminals who stole your seat from “The People’s House,” next we’ll examine motive and unmask the saboteurs.
