“Rightwing” Michigan Militia Member a Registered Democrat

Jacob Ward, a “Rightwing” militia member arrested last month, is a registered Democrat.  And the Mainstream Media stays silent…  You just know they’re still trying to link them to the Tea Party movement.

From Newsbusters via Gateway Pundit:

Militia member Jacob J. Ward voted DemocratNewsBusters reported:

Liberals in the media have been busy parading around Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center to bash the right. As befits his organization’s MO, Potok, pictured right in a file photo, has done the best he can to link recently-arrested militia members to the Tea Party movement and conservatism generally.

Potok’s job may have just gotten a bit harder, and the liberal media may need to find another way to discredit their political opponents. It turns out most of the militiamen were active voters, and at least one was a registered Democrat. Party registrations for the rest are not yet known.

The Blade, a newspaper in Toledo, Ohio reported today,

Most of the indicted militia members accused of being anti-government extremists have active voting records, a check with area voter registration offices showed yesterday.

One is a registered Democrat, and the party affiliations of the rest could not be determined.

Jacob J. Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio, voted as a Democrat in the 2004 and 2008 primary elections. He also voted in 10 other elections since 2000. Party affiliation in Ohio is determined by which party’s ballot they requested in the most recent primary election.
