Allen Event Update

By Greg L | 31 October 2006 | US Senate | No Comments

This afternoon the blogosphere has been aflame with talk about an event that happened in Charlottesville today involving Allen campaign supporters who appeared to have roughed up someone believed to be a heckler.

My sources from Richmond have told me that today’s event in Charlottesville may have been caused by a “Michael Moore wannabe” who provoked the incident in order to capture it on film and promote his career. Although this would not fully exonerate the Allen campaign supporters involved, it would help to put this event into context. Perhaps over the next day or so we will learn the extent to which Allen’s folks were provoked, or may have been acting to protect the safety of their candidate.

Stay tuned for updates…

UPDATE: Now that the kids are done with haloween and in bed, it seems that the story has been fleshed out while I was having fun. Apparently this was provoked by a Daily Kos blogger by the name of Mike Stark who wanted his fifteen minutes. More here and here. I’m not impressed with the reaction of those who were around Allen, but this is hardly a case of some innocent questioner who got abused for simply asking an innocent question.

UPDATE: More here from Ward, and Michelle Malkin picks up the story here. There’s no question this was a deliberate attempt to provoke a reaction.

Allen’s former wife, Anne Waddell, issued a statement calling Stark’s question “a baseless, cheap shot.”

Waddell, who lives in California, said she and Allen divorced more than 22 years ago, and because it was a personal matter they sealed the divorce records…

In a Monday posting on “Calling All Wingnuts,” the blog Stark publishes, he hinted that he would attempt to provoke Allen before the TV cameras.

“Im also trying to `Roger and Me’ George Allen whenever I can,” Stark wrote, referring to director Michael Moore’s 1989 documentary in which he repeatedly tried to confront former General Motors’ chief executive Roger Smith about the company’s downsizing.
