WND's Klein Revives Teresa Heinz Kerry Zombie Lie
Topic: WorldNetDaily

It's suddenly 2004 in the brain of Aaron Klein, as evidenced by his March 14 WorldNetDaily article:

Secretary of State John Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, is a primary donor to the Tides Foundation, one of the country’s biggest financiers of the radical left.

Tides is a controversial clearinghouse that funds groups such as, ACORN, Media Matters for America and a litany of so-called anti-war organizations.

If that line of attack sounds familiar, that's because it is --  WND was making the exact same attack in 2004 when John Kerry was running for president.

But Klein ignores, as WND did then, an inconvenient fact about Teresa Heinz Kerry's donations to Tides: They are earmarked for specific projects in Pennsylvania.

Klein provides no evidence that any Heinz Kerry money funds any of the "radical left" programs he names -- he's merely playing a crude version of the dishonest guilt-by-association game that is one of his unfortunate fortes.
