Obama-Era Officials Plotted Conservative's Demise
One of them has already admitted to his participation.
The Daily Caller's Chris White reports:
Former President Barack Obama campaign organizer, Mikey Dickerson, was instrumental in a disinformation campaign targeting Moore, reports show. He was not alone. Evan Coren, who has worked for the National Archives unit since Obama’s first term, also targeted the Republican’s campaign.
Dickerson is best known for fixing the glitches on HealthCare.gov after the Obamacare website's disastrous launch.
Coren, for his part, is a progressive activist who handles classified documents for the Department of Energy. He has not responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the nature of the campaign, which was designed to fool conservatives into believing Moore intended to reimpose prohibition.
Coren and other operatives created a “Dry Alabama” Facebook page with a blunt message attached: Alcohol is evil and should be prohibited, The New York Times reported Monday, citing sources familiar with the matter. The page included images of car wrecks and ruined families, the report notes. Its contents were targeted at business conservatives who are inclined to oppose prohibition.
Two wealthy Virginia donors who wanted to defeat Moore funded the project, according to a person who worked on the project and who spoke on condition of anonymity. The Dry Alabama project was one of two $100,000 campaigns designed to help Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, who barely won the 2017 special election.
Jones claims his campaign knew nothing of the malicious tactics and also demands an investigation.
Pundits believe credible allegations that Moore sexually assaulted teenage girls decades earlier played a larger part in his demise.
The beleaguered Republican only lost by 1.7 percent.
