Rachel Maddow took on Fox News on Tuesday night for promoting a story about President Barack Obama having a sort of enemies list with which he’s targeted private citizens. Specifically, related to one Frank Vandersloot who’s been on Fox recently, discussing how the Obama campaign’s mention on him in a blog post has essentially smeared him, affecting his business. Vandersloot is also Mitt Romney’s national finance co-chair.
The story originated with a blog post on the Obama campaign’s Keeping GOP Honest website. The post, entitled “Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney’s donors,” listed seven donors, including Frank Vandersloot, who was noted as being “a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”
