Obama has a fan!

Ellie Light sure gets around.
In recent weeks, Light has published virtually identical “Letters to the Editor” in support of President Barack Obama in more than a dozen newspapers.Every letter claimed a different residence for Light that happened to be in the newspaper’s circulation area.
“It’s time for Americans to realize that governing is hard work, and that a president can’t just wave a magic wand and fix everything,” said a letter from alleged Philadelphian Ellie Light, that was published in the Jan. 19 edition of The Philadelphia Daily News.

Miss Ellie has addresses in Pennsylvania, California, Ohio, New Mexico, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maine, Michigan, and Iowa.

Wonder where she really lives?

  • And to ADD the OP's finding...


    "In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-"independent" advocates to "cognitively infiltrate" online groups and websites -- as well as other activist groups -- which advocate views that Sunstein deems "false conspiracy theories" about the Government.  This would be designed to increase citizens' faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists."

  • Wow how did I guess she is another wah wah it's all Bush's fault cry baby. Never will this man own what he has done. He has tripled our debt and still UE is above 8%. But will he own it? Hello NO! I find it hilarious she is stealing addresses to do this. I hope she realizes that is against the law.

  • Been doing some reading, and I found this blog -- http://sisu.typepad.com/sisu/2010/01/these-letters-really-do-strike-that-blame-others-self-pitying-tone-we--have-all-come-to-know-so-well-in-obamas-411-speeches.html Evidently, quite a few bloggers are digging into this, and suspect that is due to a bit of astroturfing!! It is becoming curiouser and curiouser.........

  • BO has no credibility. Without the "covert" illegal crap he does, there is no way he would have won the election.
