The White House is
not .. . . pleased.

No, the WH doesn't care because
JW is a conservative, partisan organization.

They always target Democrats and
only mention Republicans when the
corruption is inescapable even to
FOX viewers.

So rational people take it FWIW;
namely, nothing.

Partisan organization? Pish tosh! Surely a partisan organization wouldn't include ...(counting)... 1 Republican on the list! This gives them great credibility.

PS>Poor token Republican :-(

Rightwing think tanks to the rescue!! Giving rightists their daily talking points, so they don't have to think for themselves or do any of their own research.

"Founded by conservative attorney Larry Klayman in 1994[4], Judicial Watch came to public attention after filing 18 lawsuits against the administration of Democratic U.S. President Bill Clinton and figures in the Clinton administration. The organization received considerable financial support from prominent Clinton critics, including $7.74 million from conservative billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife.[5] This led Clinton administration officials to accuse Judicial Watch of "abusing the judicial system for partisan ends.""

Further down:

"In all, between 1997 and 2002 Judicial Watch received $7,069,500 (unadjusted for inflation) in 19 grants from a handful of foundations. The bulk of this funding came from just three foundations – the Sarah Scaife Foundation, The Carthage Foundation and the John M. Olin Foundation, Inc.[27] According to MediaTransparency, "Judicial Watch is essentially a tool of Richard Mellon Scaife, who provides almost all its funding."[27]"

One wonders why "Judicial" Watch's list includes only one person related to (and not even employed by) the Judicial branch.

Also, this caught my eye: Holder's politicization of the Justice Department makes one long for the days of Alberto Gonzales.
Poor ol' Albie! What did he do in office again?

Hm, I can't recall.

Aww, I don't know what's cuter. The fact that they think anyone is fooled by them, or the fact that they think the White House even knows who they are.
