BUSTED! Obamabots caught faking letters of praise.


America’s newspapers have been flooded with letters to the editor praising Obama. However, WND found the exact same letter in 70 different papers. Each time claiming to be a local woman in a different city.

From WND…

Obama supporters are flooding newspapers with pro-Obama letters purportedly from average citizens – with duplicate messages appearing in more than 70 publications across the nation.

One writer identified as “Ellie Light” has published identical form letters in newspapers around the country. Sabrina Eaton of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Light claims to have different hometowns within the respective newspaper readership areas. Each letter is nearly identical in grammar, style and subject.

Light’s letters have appeared in many mainstream publications, including Politico.com, the Washington Times, USA Today and even Thailand’s Bangkok Post.

In numerous letters, Ellie Light lists various hometowns in at least 31 states and the District of Columbia.

The Patterico’s Pontifications blog posted links to 65 local publications, three national publications and two foreign publications that posted Light’s letters. The blog
invited readers to share additional links. Dozens of tips leading to additional publications are still pouring in.

The website noted that Obama “Astroturfers are coming out of the woodwork.”

Aside from Light’s messages, duplicate pro-Obama letters have been submitted to dozens of publications by writers identified as “Jan Chen,” “Gloria Elle,” “Cherry Jimenez,” “Janet Leigh,” “Earnest Gardner,” “Jen Park,” “Lars Deerman,” “John F. Stott,” “Gordon Adams,” “Nancy Speed,” “Sheila Price,” “Clarence Ndangam,” “Vernetta Mason,” “Greg Mitchell,” “Ermelinda Giurato,” “J. Scott Piper,” “Robert Vander Molen” and “Terri Reese.”

Just as news of Light’s duplicate messages broke, readers began finding various letters written by “Mark Spivey,” a man who simultaneously claims to live in San Diego, Calif., and Naples, Fla. His pro-Obama letter, “Considering Afghanistan,” was published by the Minnesota Daily, the Baltimore Chronicle, the San Diego Union-Tribune and Naples News.
