The super sleuths did their super sleuthing and figured out who sent the email- Jeff Vath, the proprietor of this fine website.
The problem is, that's not true.
I know that because the email was written and sent by me, TheOnlyTrueConservative. Mr. Vath had no involvement in the project, didn't write the email and didn't have any say in the content of the website that the email refers to. The only connection between Mr. Vath and this recall effort is that I blog on this site, and I created the other site.
But let's not let facts get in the way of a good anonymous smearing, right?
I'll go ahead and give you some facts anyway, in case you're the kind of person that cares about those types of things.
The email that started this, which I suspect you'll see a copy of on Monday, told Tom Morrissey about an effort I have started to attempt to recall him, and included a link to the website for that effort. I told Tom that I'd rather keep this quiet and not have to go public, so I gave him the weekend to consider resigning, for the good of the party. If he chose not to resign, the site would launch on Monday, the anniversary of his 100 days in office. As I mentioned before, I wrote the email. I built the website. Nobody else.
(Since it's not Monday yet, I'm not linking to the website in this piece. You see, I like to keep my word.)
I blog anonymously. So do many other people, such as the bloggers at Seeing Red, TruGOP, and some of the Sonoran Alliance bloggers, most notably the fake founding fathers from Michigan.
Some people have told me that by not revealing my "true identity" the recall effort looks less serious. They are entitled to their opinion. I respectfully disagree. I think it keeps the effort focused on Tom Morrissey, his bad judgement, and his (lack of) qualifications to do the job he was elected to do, instead of me. If people choose to focus on the messenger instead of the message, then that's their problem.
Besides, I know that there are several independent efforts underway to Recall Mr. Morrissey, so if you don't like me or my tactics, feel free to find one of them instead.
You can feel free to disagree with this website, or the humor that we use here to make our points. But the bottom line is that everything we print is true to the best of our knowledge.
For instance, Tom Morrissey, Chairman of the Republican Party in Arizona, has been married 5 times. I know this because I've seen emails from his fourth ex-wife, and he's married again. 4 + 1 = 5.
Mark Spinks, a paid consultant for the Republican Party of Arizona, is a criminal sex offender. I know this because I've seen court records that say so. He is unrepentant about his criminal past. I know that because he told the Arizona Republic that his nakedness was "far less harmful than drunken college bar fights for which he was never charged."
Brett Mecum, Executive Director for the Arizona Republican Party allegedly tried to sell an endorsement for $2,000. I know this because it was mentioned in an investigative report.
If you can find an example of something that is not true in any article that I have written, I would hope that you would email me (TheOnlyTrueConservative@gmail.com) so I could correct the record.
I doubt you'll get the same offer from the anonymous bloggers over at Seeing Red, TruGOP or the fake founding fathers who post at Sonoran Alliance. And I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for them to retract or correct their stories smearing Mr. Vath.
Stay tuned for Monday, when the effort to recall Tom Morrissey officially launches.
