Ed Failor Digs A Larger Hole

From Ron Paul's campaign:

Jan Mickelson of WHO News Radio 1040 in Des Moines interviewed Ron Paul 2008 chairman Kent Snyder today about Ron Paul being excluded from the upcoming candidates forum sponsored by Iowans for Tax Relief and Iowa Christian Alliance. Ed Failor of Iowans for Tax Relief joined the interview later to explain why his group decided to keep Ron Paul out.

Here is the MP3 that was made available by the Ron Paul campaign. Fast forward to 1:01:16 to hear the interview and exchange with Ed Failor.

I just couldn't believe what I was hearing coming from this gentleman's mouth. The host of the show Jan Mickelson couldn't either because you can hear him laughing. He even called Ed Failor's explanation "lame".

Well this is a call out to those who live in Iowa to call Ed Failor at his office number. He says that Ron Paul is not a credible candidate. He says that Iowans aren't interested in Ron Paul! He says that we have "fringe type behavior". I do not know if this is true but he accuses Ron Paul supporters of hacking into his website. I find that completely absurd, but what do I know.

I do wish Jan Mickelson was a little more pointed in his questioning, but I think he was caught off guard. Let's not forget that Ed Failor has ties to a whole bunch of companies through the organization American Legislative Exchange Council. To show his involvement you can see this page that includes his profile. He also has given the McCain Campaign $1250 on March 31, 2007.
I would like to hear his response to this.

Wow. Mr. Failor takes the time honored full defense position when the tough questions start flying.

Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make false accusations. Watch Ed spin, folks! Notice how he never touches reality! Absolutely spectacular.

How the host holds it together to keep from laughing at him outright or hanging up on him is a wholey different feat of intenstinal fortitude.

Well it's time to make a stand against that tactic. Ed Failor is playing with a fire that is going to burn him bad. He'd better stop adding fuel to it if he knows what is good for him.

As one of the groups sponsoring the event is a religious non-profit organization, the event cannot exclude nor endorse any candidate. That organization will lose it's non-proffit status if it does so.
