Hillary vs. MoveOn (And MoveOn vs. the Truth)

The Huffington Post has obtained another audio recording from a private fundraiser, and this time it was Hillary Clinton who got caught on tape saying what she really thinks about Democratic voters. She complained about “the activist base of the Democratic Party,” which she claimed turned against her after MoveOn.org endorsed Barack Obama. “MoveOn didn’t even want us to go into Afghanistan,” Hillary told her donors. “I mean, that’s what we’re dealing with.”

MoveOn’s executive director Eli Pariser told the Huffington Post, “Senator Clinton has her facts wrong again. MoveOn never opposed the war in Afghanistan, and we set the record straight years ago when Karl Rove made the same claim.”

Back in 2005, when Pariser first denied that MoveOn opposed the war in Afghanistan, NR’s Byron York debunked their debunking: “Despite Pariser’s contention, there is solid evidence that MoveOn did in fact oppose the war in Afghanistan, and that MoveOn founders Joan Blades and Wes Boyd hired Pariser in significant part because of his activism against the war.”
