Truth Equals Disinformation

According to a very prominent Democrat.

Democratic Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton denies any wrongdoing, but is lashing out at Andrew Breitbart for “misinformation” after his BigGovernment.com posted audio of a questionable voicemail message she left with a lobbyist asking for campaign cash.

“The conservative blogger, Andrew Breitbart, best known for his misinformation concerning Shirley Sherrod, is trying to mislead again,” reads a statement posted on Norton’s campaign website, referencing a past clip BigGoverment published that caused an uproar. Norton, a U.S. House delegate for Washington D.C., won the Democratic nomination for the seat Tuesday.

In the voicemail posted on BigGovernment, Norton says she’s a 20-year incumbent who is “handling the largest economic development project in the United States now,” among other projects. Then she asks for a campaign donation.
