ORYR posts doctored letter from Rep. Kenny Marchant R-TX

Watchdog. org is reporting that a letter purported to be signed by U. S. Representative  Kenny Marchant, R-TX 24th that was posted at Birther blog Obama Release Your Records was doctored to make it appear that Congressman Marchant said that articles of impeachment were being prepared against President Obama and that he supported investigations that would lead to them.

From the article by John Cassidy:

A July 8 letter [2] apparently signed by U.S. Rep. Kenny Marchant, R–Texas, which expresses sympathy with a constituent calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama, has been turning up on tea party-oriented sites and conservative message boards over the last 10 days.

After repeated mentions of impeachment, the letter cites “investigations underway in the House, the Senate, and at the FBI” regarding multiple recent administration scandals. “I am involved with and support these investigations…in order to hold them accountable. Namely, the President is under the most scrutiny and will have to face the truth of what we know to be fact in the many investigations.”

Aside from the giveaway illiterate phrasing, the paragraph is in boldface and highlighted.

“The letter floating around there was indeed altered from its original text and doctored-up,” Marchant’s legislative director, Scott Cunningham, wrote in an email. “We do not know who did this.”

The ORYR article said that the letter was given to them by someone going by the handle DOUGSTER.

We are certainly not surprised ORYR would publish a fake letter without doing any fact checking. Their record for lows in journalism may only be exceeded by those of Sharon Rondeau at the blog we affectionately call the Pest & EFail.
