RC called Mike Zullo. Wow! I wouldn’t have done that, not after the brouhaha resulting from the time I called Orly Taitz. But more power to RC, bless his heart. You can read about the call on the Reality Check Radio Blog. It’s an interesting story that’s still developing.
I have to be careful to provide the following information in sequence, so that I don’t mislead anyone about what I knew and when I knew it. I don’t want anyone to say that I gave out privileged information.
The story started when I first heard that RC had called Mike Zullo. I remember that at that time I wondered where RC had gotten Zullo’s number, but that thought quickly came and went. The question returned today when I read this at Obama Release Your Records:
Joe Mannix: Fogbow member R.C. from ‘Reality Check Radio’ got Mike Zullo’s private cell phone number and called him in his car? This makes me think R.C. does work for Team Obama and most likely got Zullo’s number through a NSA contact. I mean think about it. The only other person I can think of who would have gave out Zullo’s cell phone number to R.C. is maybe that disgruntled Brian Reilly fella who used to post here who sided with Orly and has been ridiculing Arpaio and Zullo lately.
Now remember, I hadn’t heard anything from RC about this at that time. The NSA idea is just silly and I hadn’t heard anyone in the anti-birther community say they were talking to Brian Reilly. My first thought was that the number might be on the Cold Case Posse web site. It wasn’t. I poked around and I could not find it on the Internet. Then I remembered that there are some birthers who claim to be close to Zullo, and I speculated that perhaps one of them betrayed him and gave RC the number. I said as much at ORYR:
Dr. Conspiracy: Hmmm. Where did RC get Zullo’s phone number? I think the birthers may have a mole.
I still wasn’t sold on the mole idea, so I thought I’d ask RC directly. I went over to his web site and said, partially tongue in cheek:
Dr. Conspiracy: So where, if I may ask, did you get you get Zullo’s super-secret shoe phone number?
I frankly was not expecting the reply:
Reality Check: If I told you I would have to kill you.
The evasion got me to thinking that I might be onto something, And indeed, a very specific person of interest came to mind. To let RC know what I was thinking, I responded frankly:
Dr. Conspiracy: The fact that you decline to make this information public reinforces my speculation left at ORYR that there is an Obot mole in the Cold Case Posse. …
I have identified a person of interest.
One more time: I had no private information from RC at this point, and I have truthfully disclosed the reasons for my speculation that there is an Obot mole in the Cold Case Posse. It was not from RC.
Since the events described above, I have received a confidential communication from RC disclosing the source. I’m not going to name names—I am ethically bound to honor RC’s request not to. Also I am ethically bound not to leave any hints. I do so love veiled hints, but don’t ask.
The source of Zullo’s phone number was not Brian Reilly.
