    THE ART OF SPIN...



    Judy, a professional genealogical researcher, discovered that Hillary Clinton's great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, a fellow lacking in
    character, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the
    gallows.

    On the back of the picture is this inscription: "Remus Rodham; horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the
    Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889."

    Judy emailed Hillary Clinton @NY. Gov for comments.



    Hillary's staff of professional image adjustors cropped Remus' picture, scanned it, enlarged the image, and edited it with image processing

    software so that all that's seen is a head shot.

    The accompanying biographical sketch is as follows:

    "Remus Rodham was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets

    and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility,
    finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad.

    In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during
    an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."
