Mock’s campaign is despicableThe Forum deserves a prairie rose for calling out Corey Mock and the despicable campaign he’s running against an honorable public servant, North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger.
The Democratic left has had the “Secretary of State Project” in play since 2006. It’s described as: “A project of the Democracy Alliance, the Secretary of State Project (SoSP) was established in July 2006 as an independent ‘527’ organization devoted to helping Democrats get elected to the office of Secretary of State in selected swing, or battleground, states; these were states where the margin of victory in the 2004 presidential election (between George W. Bush and John Kerry) had been 120,000 votes or less.” You can read the full description of it at http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid7487.
The object of the SoSP rests on Joseph Stalin’s famous quote that “It’s not who gets the votes, it’s who counts the votes.” The truth of this was demonstrated in last year’s senatorial election in Minnesota and how important that 60th Democratic senator proved to be to the Obama agenda.
Mock’s assaults, and there have been several, on Jaeger are just an extension of the SoSP so that he (Mock) will become the arbiter in close North Dakota elections. Jaeger’s performance over the years has been exemplary. He has performed in a quiet, efficient and, most importantly, nonpartisan manner to the benefit of all North Dakotans.
