UPDATE: Rozita Swinton, the woman arrested today for falsely tipping off the police that she was an abused child bride at the FLDS polygamy cult in Texas is a PLEDGED BARACK OBAMA STATE DELEGATE!!

It was her initial false report that started the investigation which has led to the removal of 400 children from their parents' custody.

Patterico:

In an odd coincidence, a person named Rozita E. Swinton of Colorado Springs is listed on the El Paso County Democratic Party website as an Obama delegate.
From the webpage. The number next to her name indicates the precinct she's in.

How many Rozita Swintons can there be in Colorado Springs?

Another example of a Democratic activist making up a fake but accurate story? Sure, she lied about everything, but isn't the goal of removing children from parents who's lifestyle we don't approve of trump truth?

Thanks to RedHatRob in the comments.

UPDATE II: I'm going to put this in it's own post, but thought some latecomers (not from Ace's link since the morons are generally earlycomer, except maybe Slu) might benefit from seeing the added info.

McCain has an update and links this Houston Chronicle piece:

The Rangers are "actively pursuing Rozita Swinton as a person of interest regarding telephone calls placed to a crisis center hotline in San Angelo," the DPS said....

"In her little baby voice, she said, 'If you rescue me, and I get out of here, do you think the black people will hurt me?' " Walker said. "She had done her homework. She knew it was a racist cult. We know that these kids are very frightened of black people.

"The Texas Rangers told us she was obsessed with the FLDS. They confiscated tons of material on the FLDS (in the search of Swinton's home). She even gave real addresses and real names of FLDS people."

Hence, how Swinton would be able to "identify" the man who "Sarah" was allegedly married to, but didn't know that Dale Evans Barlow, the man originally pegged as the "50 year old husband", didn't actually live in Texas, but in Arizona.

But there's more:

“There is no verbage or terminology used that leads me to believe the statements were made by someone inside,” said Ezra Draper of Hildale, Utah, who left the FLDS sect six years ago. “I think it’s bunk.”

Examples: The term FLDS use to describe other people is “gentiles,” not outsiders, and they don’t observe such holidays as Easter Sunday, when the alleged victim claimed she was last beaten.

Susan Risdon, the crisis shelter spokeswoman, said the calls to the shelter were not recorded but that the two employees who spoke with the girl wrote down what she said.

“I think it’s the exact language,” Risdon said.

He points out that only the most worthy among the FLDS were called to live at the ranch. Those “FLDS wouldn’t have tolerated any abuse like that [the girl’s broken ribs] within their society,” he says.

Draper also wonders how the girl knew to call the shelter, given the isolation and control that authorities say those at the ranch experienced.

This entire story has stunk to high-heaven from the git go.

Stacey McCain notes that I'm a god. To quote Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, "I'm a god. I'm not the God, I don't think."

Remember the FLDS polygamy cult story that I've been saying sounds so bogus?

A Colorado woman named Rozita Swinton has been arrested for pretending to be an abused child bride on the Texas FLDS compound. ABC:

Texas Rangers participated in the arrest of a Colorado woman who allegedly pretended to be a girl locked in a basement. The Rangers were in the state as part of their investigation into the Texas polygamy custody battle, local police told ABC News....

But ABC News has learned that Texas Rangers flew to Colorado Springs, Colo., and participated in the arrest of a 33-year-old woman who was charged with filing a false report.

The FBI also told ABC News it is assisting local police in the investigation. Colorado Springs police said in a statement that "The Texas Rangers were in Colorado Springs Wednesday as part of their investigation involving the compound in Texas."

Like I said, a god. And if this doesn't prove my godness, this should: Abortion art fake, or real, but probably most definitely fake.

If not a god, can we at least agree that I'm a on the scene like a sex machine?

Sensationalist stories are like The Boy Who Cried Wolf: sometimes true, but 2 out of 3 times just a lot of hype.
