Darn SCLM!

Jake Tapper gets caught 'carrying water,' condoms for GOP Gov Sanford.

The ABC "journalist" joins the Moonie Times, Faux Nooze, and rightwingnut bloggers in pandering for an interview with the disgraced horndog.

ABC News White House reporter Jake Tapper e-mailed [Sanford spokesman Joel] Sawyer twice on June 23, both to note [somewhat disparaging] coverage of competitor NBC.

With a subject line of "NBC spot was slimy," Tapper e-mailed Sawyer a "Today" show transcript of Sanford coverage, calling it "insulting." Later, Tapper forwarded Sawyer a Twitter post by David Gregory, who may or may not have called him an amoral douchewad with mommy issues and a bad comb-over.

Jeff Schneider, a vice president at ABC News, said Tapper was "carrying some water for producers who knew he had a relationship with the governor’s office."

Bonus: the gauntlet has been thrown, and the dKossacks are still waiting for Mr Tapper to make his promised appearance to explain himself.
