    The Kerry campaign is gloating this weekend over the resignation of Bush-Cheney volunteer, former Vietnam War POW Ken Cordier, who's featured in the latest Swift Boat ad - saying it proves illegal coordination between the Swiftvets' 527 group and the official Bush campaign.

    But Kerry has no plans to fire Zach Exley, a key campaign staffer who served as the organizing director for MoveOn.org throughout the presidential primaries.


    What's more, MoveOn, whose sole mission is to defeat President Bush in November, maintains that Exley is allowed to "communicate" with the 527 group even as he works for the Democratic nominee.
    "Col. Cordier did not inform the campaign of his involvement in the advertisement," the Bush campaign said in a statement late Saturday. "Because of his involvement [in the ad] Col. Cordier will no longer participate as a volunteer for Bush-Cheney '04."

    But there's no doubt that Kerry knew all about Exley's background when he hired him.

    In April the Kerry for President Web site proudly announced: "Zach Exley joins the [Kerry] Internet team as Director of Online Communications and Online Organizing. He was previously the director of special projects for the MoveOn.org."

    He should not fire him. He has a right to assemble with as many groups as he wants. The fact taht it may violate the McCain Feingold act just shows how unconstitutional the act was. Of course Kerry and Bush supported it so it will not hurt either of them more than the other!

    For once i agree with you. You know McCain is so vulnerable the next time he is up for reelection. All someone has to do is paint him as the anti free speech candidate and then prove it by orchestrating one of these ads and watching McCain try to shut it up. Not only would it make McCain lose, it could take it back to court again.

    Wonder if Bush will be blamed for this:

    HANOI (Reuters) - The family of a 17-year-old Vietnamese boy who died 36 years ago kept his body in their home after a fortune teller told relatives they had buried the teenager alive by mistake.

    The boy's family thought he had died in 1968 of illness, but a herbal medicine man said told the father his son was still alive after the burial, the Ho Chi Minh City Police newspaper said on Tuesday.

    Stricken with remorse, the father dug up the body and displayed it in a glass-covered coffin, keeping it in the family home in southern An Giang until he recently confessed the macabre secret to a police news reporter.

    The newspaper ran a photo of the dead boy's brother posing with his arms folded next to the coffin of his sibling. The body of the boy had not decomposed, the report said.


    Maybe it's another right wing conspiracy to schmear Mr Kerry? The boy in the box could be the one Kerry shot you know...............
