Purchasing Political Silence

The Campaign Finance Reform "movement" was bogus.
CAMPAIGN-FINANCE reform has been an immense scam perpetrated on the American people by a cadre of left-wing foundations and disguised as a 'mass movement.'

But don't take my word for it. One of the chief scammers, Sean Treglia, a former program officer of the Pew Charitable Trusts, confesses it all in an astonishing videotape I obtained earlier this week.

The tape - of a conference held at USC's Annenberg School for Communication in March of 2004 - shows Treglia expounding to a gathering of academics, experts and journalists (none of whom, apparently, ever wrote about Treglia's remarks) on just how Pew and other left-wing foundations plotted to create a fake grassroots movement to hoodwink Congress.

'I'm going to tell you a story that I've never told any reporter,' Treglia says on the tape. 'Now that I'm several months away from Pew and we have campaign-finance reform, I can tell this story.'
Senator McCain, anything to say? My gut tells me that a "fake, but accurate" moment is coming.
