Someone who has posted anonymous comments to this blog thinking they will sway your opinion regarding Jason Chaffetz. They have posted a blog at www.thetruthaboutjason.com. Of course, I have to refer to this individual as “they” because I honestly don’t know if this is a male or female; I have no name to go on.
But that brings up an interesting point: Anonymity. Why be anonymous? Why not come out and boldly be counted? The Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to confront your accusers. It’s very telling when someone makes accusations like this and violates constitutional principles to do it. Anonymity guarantees the accuser they will never have to be held responsible for their accusations–they are free to say and do whatever they wish, without fear of retribution or punishment, even if they are wholly wrong.
I don’t know who this person is, but from their repeated references to David Leavitt, my guess is that they are an embittered Leavitt supporter. Prove me wrong–show some integrity and step into the light. Your anonymity speaks volumes about you–and not kindly.
They say they want a civil dialogue, yet they resort to smearing, false accusations, innuendo, half-truths and other rhetorical devices in order to manipulate your opinion. In other words, this person hides like a coward, speaks out of both sides of their mouth, and argues like a liberal.
