The Washington Times - October 22, 2009, 07:44AM

Today’s Water Cooler lineup of off the beaten path online stories are: A West Virginia woman has recanted her story of torture after she helped send six people to prison, MSNBC blames the tele-prompter for a race gaffe, and Rep. Alan Grayson’s new “listing of the dead” website has more problems than just being offensive.

  • CNN:  Woman recants story of West Virginia abuse

A 22-year-old woman whose claims that she was abused in a trailer in rural West Virginia in 2007 helped send six people to prison now says she made up the story, her lawyer said Wednesday.

Just imagine the coyote howls of “RAAAAAAACISM” that would be resounding right now if this gaffe had occurred on Fox News instead of “Real News” Network MSNBC.

The NRCC also noted that the new site links to both Grayson’s campaign website and his official House website. Commingling publicly funded congressional communications and campaign communications is prohibited.
