Now, why would that guy lie?
To make Obama look bad. To be embraced by the GOP and get in the media. Or, like I said, the guy may be paranoid and imagining things.

But, facts are he did donate, his divorce records were summoned....I guess that is all a lie also. Also, why would you bring up your family, in a lie?

Hitting a little below the belt isn't it. If true, there is the thug style mentality coming out. And if true, what a freaking bully of the worse kind, and a bad sport. Don't want someone like that on my team!

I totally agree with that. I just meant that the title should read, "Donate to Romney; expect He!! from Obama," shouldn't it?

Prove his divorce records were summoned. All I have seen so far is one guy's statements; that is all.

It's amazing what a leftist will do to support this, I gave you Vandersloots own words and you cannot handle that, so here:

Frank VanderSloot | Teri O'Brien – America's Original Conservative Warrior Princess

Quote:
Frank VanderSloot is the CEO of Melaleuca Inc. The 63-year-old has run that wellness-products company for 26 years out of tiny Idaho Falls, Idaho. Last August, Mr. VanderSloot gave $1 million to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that supports Mitt Romney.
Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, “Keeping GOP Honest,” took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled “Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” the post accused the eight of being “wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.” Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being “litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.” About a week after that post, a man named Michael Wolf contacted the Bonneville County Courthouse in Idaho Falls in search of court records regarding Mr. VanderSloot. Specifically, Mr. Wolf wanted all the documents dealing with Mr. VanderSloot’s divorces, as well as a case involving a dispute with a former Melaleuca employee.
Mr. Wolf sent a fax to the clerk’s office—which I have obtained—listing four cases he was after. He would later send a second fax, asking for three further court cases dealing with either Melaleuca or Mr. VanderSloot. Mr. Wolf listed only his name and a private cellphone number.

Do you know what the word "summoned" means? I said, "Prove that his divorce records were summoned". They weren't summoned.

If the account you quoted and linked to is true (and I'll grant you that it probably is true), it is an account of an opposition researcher requesting to look at the divorce records of a major donor to a SuperPac that supports Romney looking for dirt. That is perfectly legal, and you can bet your bottom dollar that Romney has opposition researchers doing the same thing. If you didn't know that, you don't know much about presidential politics.

Read "We're With Nobody" to read of hundreds of stories just like Vandersloot's that both GOP and Democrats do.

.
Would you have rather me said "asked" instead of summoned?

No need to play words, we all know what I meant.

I'm sure Romney is doing it, but why would you promote what you are doing? Maybe to say, you donate to Romney and I'm going to investigate you, period?
