It has been reported that Dan Cragg was referred to the press by George Allen's campaign to claim Jim Webb had a racial incident in California. That story may now be falling totally apart. From 9 News:
"Dan Cragg, who later worked with Webb at the Pentagon during the Reagan Administration, says Webb’s account is missing both from the tape recording and transcript of his interview with the rising star among Vietnam veterans. Cragg says he doesn’t remember if he erased that part of the tape or failed to record that part of the interview."
"According to Cragg, when Webb did not publicly repudiate the allegations against Allen, he decided to "level the playing field."
Meanwhile, the headline on MSNBC is another person accusing Allen of using the n-word. From that:
"When George Allen stood right up and said he had never used that word, and that just blew me away,” Waring said. “I thought, ‘Boy, you could, if you had any integrity, you would say yes, I may have made some mistakes in my youth, in my younger years, but, and I'm sorry.’ But to hear him lie about it when I know he is lying."
Allen's problem developing now is not the use of racial slurs two decades ago, but his comments on Monday denying it. What was otherwise a good day for him is suddenly turning sour once again!
Here's my NLS advice to George Allen: "As long as you continue to lie about this story, the noose will continue to tighten."
Given Allen's history- that's something he will understand well.
