This appears to be nothing more than rumors on the Internets, but it’s jumped into talk radio so I guess it’s worth covering. The backstory, according to Melanie Morgan at KSFO, is that Lew Rockwell has been posting over at the Huffington Post, but that it only started after he met Cindy Sheehan (who incidentally has posted quite frequently over at LewRockwell.com).
MOTHER SHEEHAN’S MARRIED LOVER
Activist breaks camp in Crawford to do ‘damage control’
Cindy Sheehan packed her bags and left Crawford ,Texas, Tuesday afternoon and arrived home in Berkeley, Ca. late Tuesday evening. Sheehan rushed back to do damage control after explosive information became public today about an alleged affair that began while she was still married to her husband Patrick, and after her son Casey Sheehan died in Sadr City, Iraq attempting to rescue members of his trapped squad.
Sources are telling authors Melanie Morgan and Catherine Moy, (American Mourning, Cumberland Press) that Sheehan is furious that the news of her affair has gone public. Sources have identified the boyfriend as former right-winger Lew Rockwell of the Ludwig Von Mises think tank located in Alabama, who is himself married.
Sheehan was in Texas for over a week to confront President Bush about the war in Iraq, demanding a second meeting with the man she calls a ‘murderous bastard.’
Sources say that Sheehan met Lew Rockwell in an Internet chatroom, and exchanged 600 text mail messages before her husband learned of the affair through phone records.
Rockwell, who has a blog at HuffingtonPost.com and his own website www.lewrockwell.com has not responded to inquiries for comment.
Now, I’m going to get the whole ewwww out of the way, because I honestly didn’t want to think about the prospect of Sheehan having any kind of affairs, extramarital or not.
But if this is true, at least we know that it isn’t Arianna who you have to blow in order to be a blogger at the HuffPo. And damn if this doesn’t put the term “link whoring” in a new light.
