STATEMENT BY WINNER & ASSOCIATES
It has been alleged by Fox News and a blogger that our firm may have “ties” to David Axelrod, the media advisor to the Obama campaign.
This allegation is completely false.
No member of the firm, including Ethan Winner, has a relationship with Axelrod, and no member of the firm has had any contact, direct or indirect, with Axelrod in at least 10 years.
Pssst: I was being ironical.
PS: Amanda will be on O'Reilly pretty quick talking about it.
UPDATE: Wow, what an arrogant dismissive ..... Hell, I don't even know if there's an Axelrod connection. That's why I'm asking the MSM to look into it. Because, you know, I'm just some dude with a keyboard.
They're the ones that can afford to sick "investigative journalists" on to the McCain campaign to find out what is really public record and that I could have done sitting on my ass.
What I do know is that Ethan isn't telling us all the facts. Maybe we're way off. Maybe Arianna Huffington herself paid Ethan to do it. I don't know. But now that Ethan is trying to get other people to buy airtime for the video? This doesn't pass the smell test.
