Justice Dept. Gallup lawsuit came after Axelrod criticized pollsters

LINK

quote:

Internal emails between senior officials at The Gallup Organization, obtained by The Daily Caller, show senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod attempting to subtly intimidate the respected polling firm when its numbers were unfavorable to the president.

After Gallup declined to change its polling methodology, Obama’s Department of Justice hit it with an unrelated lawsuit that appears damning on its face.

TheDC is withholding the identities of the Gallup officials to protect them from potential retaliation from Obama’s campaign and his administration.


quote:

Internally, Gallup officials discussed via email how to respond Axelrod’s accusations. One suggested that it “seems like a pretty good time for a blog response,” and named a potential writer.

In response to that suggestion, another senior Gallup official wrote — in an email chain titled “Axelrod vs. Gallup” — that the White House “has asked” a senior Gallup staffer “to come over and explain our methodology too.”

At what point do we watch this Justice Department,and this Executive Branch, EASILY the most nakededly partisan in modern American history and start asking ourselves: Is this the Executive Branch or Organized Crime ?

But I guess government coercion against freedom of speech is "cool" and "historic" and full of "hope and change" when in the service of Liberalism.

Richard Nixon's wettest dream does not come remotely close to the shite that Obama and his lackeys do in terms of strong-arm tactics and just generally dirty shite.

The suit was started in 09. This story is bogus.

From the article: "In August, Justice signed on to a suit Lindley filed in 2009."

But Rex has told me repeatedly that the Oboe was the most honest Prez EVAH, how could this be? Go look at the many cases that have been the target of suits by the DOJ, all of them have in common its being in opposition to Oboe, I have dollars I can lose on a bet that none of the libtards touch this thread with a ten foot Polack.

It's Chicago politics. Obama's people are pieces of dog shite.

In April, Axelrod tweeted that a poll showing Mitt Romney with a 48-43 percent lead over Obama was “saddled with some methodological problems,” directing his Twitter followers to read a National Journal story criticizing Gallup polls showing a Romney lead.




The Daily Caller is trash

Jerkwad, really? Because I don't believe everything the Daily Caller posts?

Also from the article:
quote:


Lindley made his allegations under seal after leaving his Gallup job. A senior Gallup official told TheDC that the Justice Department began investigating the allegations in October 2009 and served the company with subpoenas in February or March 2010. Gallup, the source said, provided the government with about three terabytes of data

I know Justice Department investigations take some time...but over 2 years to actually enter the suit?

Considering the track record of this band of thieves, I'd venture to say that if Gallup's "methodology" was acceptable to the White House, that DOJ would have remained on the sideline for this suit.

It honestly wouldn't surprise me. I just can't believe they would go after Gallup for something so meaningless as poll methodology.

The investigation of whether Gallup had filed false claims with the federal government has nothing to do with their polling methodology

The writer of the article consistently produces trash

That was my point. I don't think the lawsuit has anything to do with Axelrod criticizing Gallup's polling methodology.

It is exactly what I would do in reverse if I was president. Only difference would be I'd use the IRS also. Give me four years of that kind of power and I'd hound democrats into oblivion.

In my lifetime of 51 years, I have never heard of the federal government sueing anyone. Why has this DOJ entered into so many lawsuits. I am curious if anyone else on here has ever heard of the DOJ sueing anyone ever?
