Fake FLDS tipster an Obama delegate?

April 19, 2008

The Jawa Report and Patterico have broke this story before the MSM. The questions is not when the MSM will cover this, but if they will.

Rozita Swinton, the woman arrested today for falsely tipping off the police that she was an abused child bride at the FLDS polygamy cult in Texas is a PLEDGED BARACK OBAMA STATE DELEGATE!!

It was her initial false report that started the investigation which has led to the removal of 400 children from their parents’ custody.

Details in the Deseret News and the Houston Chronicle.

It appears that this Obama supporter had no problem playing the race card herself.
From the Houston Chronicle article:

Department of Public Safety officials declined to discuss the case as part of an ongoing investigation, but issued a statement Friday saying the Rangers accompanied Colorado Springs police to search Swinton’s home for items related to previous false reports to authorities.

Officers found several items indicating a possible connection between Swinton and calls regarding FLDS compounds in Colorado City, Arizona, and the one near Eldorado.

Child Protection Project founder Linda Walker and the Phoenix-based group’s executive director, Flora Jessop, said Friday they were stunned when they learned the woman’s identity.

“In her little baby voice, she said, ‘If you rescue me, and I get out of here, do you think the black people will hurt me?’ ” Walker said. “She had done her homework. She knew it was a racist cult. We know that these kids are very frightened of black people.

“The Texas Rangers told us she was obsessed with the FLDS. They confiscated tons of material on the FLDS (in the search of Swinton’s home). She even gave real addresses and real names of FLDS people.”

…at least in this one case. Here is his statement on the death of the Rev. Fallwell:

“My mother always told me that no matter how much you dislike a person, when you meet them face to face you will find characteristics about them that you like. Jerry Falwell was a perfect example of that. I hated everything he stood for, but after meeting him in person, years after the trial, Jerry Falwell and I became good friends. He would visit me in California and we would debate together on college campuses. I always appreciated his sincerity even though I knew what he was selling and he knew what I was selling.”
