See the latest connect-the-dots at Taylor Marsh. It’s important to keep the communication ongoing between the two blogs so we can better understand and weave together the story, as we are kind of covering two different angles. Keep up the good work. Taylor’s main Murtha page is here. Great Kos diary on the possible profiteering angle.
To our new visitors: please help us track down and investigate and expose those involved in this enterprise. Read the post below and if you can help, please do so.

More as it comes.
This is about Ireys run against Jack Murtha . . . did some digging. . . went to corps watch. It seems that Ireys husband Bob.. was involved with a gentleman who was killed in iraq and not a solder.. a contractor(and as I read, arms dealer). Here is the url.. its good reading. Also found a blog post From Roger Morrow(Gerald Ford’s speechwriter), that you can read here.
Now I may be wrong. . . but it seems that some calls were made to our favorite Penn aparatchik, Mr. Santorum. Hope this helps.
More after the jump.
Update: Here is what we know so far, but we could use your help.
The person who set up the site is one Amanda P. Doss, and a quick google search turns up this site: www.operationstreetcorner.com, which is a wonderful site, as Billy found out, dedicated to: “The Vietnam Veterans’ Grassroots Campaign Against John Kerry and Jane Fonda, traitors to our country.” She may be tied to Jerome Corsi and some of the Swiftboaters, themselves, but we need your help. Please google around and look for associations and links. It is important and essential to pre-empt this crap before they get it out. Doss’ email: email@example.com Add any new info to the comments of shoot me an email: seanpaul-at-agonist.dot.org
Update 2: Amanda Doss is tied into Swiftboat liars a great deal, see this Newsmax story where she was an honoree. Scroll down.
Update 3: She’s got a client list.
Update 4: Apparently one of the folks involved in hiring Ms. Doss was Larry Bailey. I don’t much about him, but this is a start.
Administrative: First item of business is to get our website up and
running in a credible way. Amanda Prewett Doss of Texarkana, TX, who
handled the ’04 campaign, has been engaged to be our website manager,
and she has already purchased our domain name
http://www.murthalied.com/ What we need to do now it to develop the
download folder from which our volunteers will obtain the flyers that
they will post on their display boards. PLEASE keep your eyes open for
ANYTHING that could be used (to defeat) Murtha. For the time being,
send what you find to me; I have asked a very literate friend to stand
by to extract the most salient quotes for posting in large font on our
Listen, folks! Operation Street Corner will WORK, and I think its
effect will, after the election, be measurable. We just need to start
small and build to a crescendo in October and culminate in a Rally or
some major event just before the election.”

More from Graham:
“A group has formed to help Kerry out. Called “KerrysTreason.com,” the group has created a website on which they have archived Standard Form 180, in PDF format.”
“The site was created by Amanda Prewett Doss, the daughter of Vietnam veteran, Capt. Glen Prewett, and by Carol Gell Crowley, daughter of Vietnam veteran, Sgt. Jack Gell.”
The group is sponsored by the online newspaper, U.S. Veteran Dispatch, whose publisher is Ted Sampley.
Who is Ted Sampley?
As a friend writes in, “Always good to have a face with a name.” Indeed, here is Amanda:
