Today in Mississippi, Attorney General Jim Hood told the Clarion-Ledger that his office is investigating “political blogger” Charles C. Johnson (who is NOT ME), after a self-proclaimed pastor admitted to the AG’s office that he was paid by Johnson to lie about participating in a vote-buying scheme.

Right wing hatchet man Charles C. Johnson

Hood said he wasn’t sure of the blogger’s name but that he was the one who posted a video. When asked if it was Charles C. Johnson of gotnews.com, Hood said he believed it was.

Hood said Stevie Fielder claims he was paid $2,000 to lie on a recording where the Meridian man said campaign staffers with U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran asked him to pay people to vote for the incumbent. Fielder told Hood’s office he was not asked to do that and had not done that.

Fielder later recanted most of what he told Johnson and what Johnson reported on gotnews.com.

According to Hood, Fielder says he was told what to say by the political blogger and others involved in recording the video.

Maybe now that he’s being relentlessly exposed as a dishonest hack, people will stop paying attention to this buffoon, and I can take a rest from pointing out that Charles C. Johnson is NOT ME.

(But knowing how the right wing echo chamber works, this will probably just boost his credibility in that closed system.)
