Toe-sucker chronicles

Posted By on Fri, Dec 3, 2010 at 4:36 PM

Remember when Dick Morris came to town to campaign for Beth Anne Rankin, the other Republican who ran for 4th District Congress?

Rankin described Morris' visit as an "endorsement." Hah. She paid the reptilian prostitute toe-sucker $10,000. But she sure got her money's worth, if in typically slimy Morris fashion. From Media Matters:

Fox News has another ethics problem to not care about.

According to Federal Election Commission records, the congressional campaign of Beth Anne Rankin (R-AR) paid Dick Morris $10,000 for a speech. Morris spoke at Rankin rallies on October 15. In the week following the paid speech, Morris used his Fox News position to tout Rankin's electoral prospects on three separate appearances without disclosing he was paid by her campaign.

Rankin, who Morris said is "probably going to beat" incumbent Rep. Mike Ross, lost her race by 17.4 points.

Fox—ethics—Morris? One of these words is not like the others.
