Oops, They Did It Again

When Armstrong Williams made the ominous claim that he wasn't the only writer under secret government contract to promote presidential initiatives, he wasn't kidding. Now there's Maggie Gallagher, who was being paid off by the Department of Health and Human Services. She was pushing Bush's welfare reform policies, "marriage strengthening" initiative, and gay-bashing. Howard Kurtz reports here.

Even the psychotically conservative National Review was annoyed that she didn't reveal the existence of her contract. Damn.
