GA Smackdown: Wingnut 'retracts' Khan Family hit

Smear blog blocks access to "stolen document" AFTER confrontation with GA 


Folks, I just have to share.

A wingnut blog purporting to having "see[n] and verify[ied]"   an "original" Wells Fargo wire transfer statement showing  $375K moved from the Clinton Foundation to  "KM Khan Law Office" on "8/1" appears to have backed off on the cyber-smear after an online/email exchange with GA.

SCORE!

Blogger claims to have seen and verified the "original" Wells Fargo bank statement that shows a $375K transfer to war-hero dad's Mr. Khan's bank account  from the CLinton Foundation

After late night/ early morning exchanges with GA, morning, the smear piece no longer loads for visitors- their IPs are automatically redirected to the home page.  No, I am not linking to this shitty blog, but have downloaded the original post, including my "moderated" comments if any execs at Wells Fargo are interested.

In GA's opinion, the smear blog's biggest problems lie with Wells Fargo- not Kahn nor anyone in the political world- with the blog's publication of an alleged bank statement "stolen" from its servers by hackers who call themselves "Anonymous."

Oh yes, the smear blogger used those words "stolen document" verbatim, see below:



In a nutshell, here's what happened.

When GA saw the alleged Wells Fargo statement on Facebook (some dimwits bought into it), I traced it's original publication to a wingnut website.

A blindfolded person would know the alleged Wells Fargo "account statement" is a fraud.   Yet, the smear-merchant giddily frames it as though he/she believes the "altered document" will put his/her shitty blog on the map, like Linda Tripp did for Matt Drudge.  

GA had to pluck that low-hanging fruit.  Here are my two comments which went unpublished (remind you of anyone?)


Today I awoke to two very long diatribes in my Inbox.  Here is the first paragraph of one:



My reply:



Well, what do you know?

No reply from the "please@getoffthebs.com" but the blog no longer allows access to their "stolen document" trashing Mr. Kahn, father of fallen war hero U.S.Army Captain Humayan Kahn.

Coincidence?

  3. GA, take a look at the rants by a newly appointed commissioner of the HHA on his and other reformers facebook pages attacking the Khans and supporting a Muslim Ban.
    An appointee of this administration, not their fault, but just a fact - he should be removed

    2. Not that complicated. The question is whether it interferes with his role on the HHA. People tried to get GA kicked off the ZBA for years for blogging.

    3. Can we debate objectionable comments posted on Facebook ON FACEBOOK? This is not Facebook. I dropped a comment over there myself, feel free to respond in kind there.

    4. Would love to know who you guys are talking abut? Why can't you name the person? Maybe it IS "complicated" for some people. Who is it?

    5. Well he is attacking the Khans so it is germane to this topic and he is a public official.
      He also posted on this very topic in a public post.
