Daily Kos sticks up for Weiner by publishing identities of underage girls
Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller 1 hr 25 mins ago
Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas allowed the publication of underage girls identities on his blog in an attempt to vilify Andrew Breitbart and exonerate New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner. Tommy Christopher, an openly left-wing journalist at Mediaite, reported Friday morning that Moulitsass site published personally identifiable information about two young women who have become somewhat involved in the #Weinergate scandal.
Christopher refers to the two 16-year-old girls as Betty and Veronica in order to protect their identities. Christopher said Betty approached him on Sunday with information about how Dan Wolfe or @PatriotUSA76, would regularly harass Weiner and young women who follow the congressman on Twitter. Betty never wanted to be a public part of the story.
Bettys friend Veronica then approached Christopher with a made-up story about Weiner sending her lewd pictures on Twitter. Several conservative Twitter users, such as Wolfe and @GoatsRed (Mike Stack), had been encouraging people to come forward with such stories. But Christopher told TheDC that no one was asked to lie and Veronicas story was not published before being debunked. Daily Kos bloggers, however, alleged that the conservative Twitter users were soliciting false stories about Weiner.
Christopher writes in his story that these Kos bloggers were able to track down Betty and Veronica based on clues left behind in his Twitter feed. Christopher contacted Moulitsas to ask him to stop publication of information that could be used to identify the young girls. An email back-and-forth between Christopher and Moulitsas shows the two liberals disagreeing on whether or not the young girls identities should be published. Christopher told TheDC hes really livid with Moulitsass actions.

What a stupid defense
Pricks of a feather...
That was stupid of Markos Moulitsas.
He has now opened himself up to lawsuits from the girls’s parents.
Real classy. What a jerk.
Mediaite is trying to gain hits. Never heard of them, until this stuff.......now, twice in one day?
Why talk around thing. This guy is one stupid bastard. I hope the parents of these girls sue the crap out of him.
When will people see these lying liberal morons for the filth they really are?

I know, you can stop laughing now !!!
Looks like the left is down to fighting children,such bravery.
Anyone want to send Kos a strong letter telling him that he should be causing trouble for children. BTW - That address is public record, found at the FEC's website.
I hope the parents of these girls sue the crap out of him.
If they were my daughters I’d BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF HIM, not sue him
