The Swiftboating of Cindy Begins, Station Disses Cindy

After yesterday's victory (questionable, since now users of Free Republic are writing the station manager and saying they are interested in the anti-Sheehan barbecue/protest), the right-wingers are now going after Cindy Sheehan with fake documents.

a new letter comes from Casey Sheehan's (Cindy's son, killed in combat in Iraq) supposed, but not proven, aunt and godmother , Cherie Quarterolo, and it was obtained by a right-winger host named Melanie Morgan at the station KSFO. It is signed by "Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins", although there is no actual name. They are afraid to sign names, because it would then be forgery if they weren't her real relatives.


But in truth, Cindy's family does support her.

From the San Francisco Chronicle: :

"Pat and Cindy Sheehan father, mother and sister The Sheehans do not
believe that Iraq was an imminent threat to the United States or that the decision to invade was the right one. They said the war has made the nation less safe, and that the troops should be withdrawn. They support John Kerry for president. "

And from IndyMedia, here :

Patrick Sheehan, Cindy Sheehan husband, supports his wife in her activism, he participates in some events and drives with Cindy when he is not working as a sales representative. He spoke about the toll this work is taking in the family. "If she is not away traveling or speaking, she is home with her laptop, watching news, or talking on the phone...This is important, we try to continue to support her.""
