An interesting addendum to the Moore Info story

UPDATE: As noted in the comments, Mr. Mapes' info was incorrect -- Bob Moore is not Mormon.
The Oregonian's Jeff Mapes reported yesterday afternoon that Bob Moore, the head of Moore Information in Portland (which is being investigated by New Hampshire officials regarding the anti-Mormon push-polling that occurred there in November), is himself a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I've been resistant to the idea that Mitt Romney has been behind those push-polls; it just didn't seem consistent with his character. But there are so many links to the Romney campaign -- Moore hired Western Wats, a Mormon-owned firm in Utah which employs several financial supporters of Romney, to conduct the polls -- that that the idea will not die.

If Mitt Romney thinks his finish in Iowa was damaging, that will be nothing compared to the damage he will suffer if it's revealed he ordered those push-polls against himself.

    Note that Jeff Mapes has corrected that story and now says Moore is NOT a Mormon. (I linked to the story from your site, and the story is now corrected with an editorial note at the bottom of the story). Not really a big deal to me one way or the other, just hate to see facts getting mixed up with fiction.
