WASHINGTON, DC — This afternoon, Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney fell victim to what was evidently a political assassination.
Gwatney was a major ally of Hillary and Bill Clinton, and was a leader of the strongly pro-Clinton Arkansas delegation to the upcoming Denver Democratic National Convention.
Gwatney’s Arkansas delegation was known to be a hotbed of anti-Obama sentiment, and was reportedly ready to walk out of the Denver convention if Senator Clinton were not to be treated fairly by the Howard Dean-Donna Brazile DNC leadership.
Observers in Washington are now asking whether the assassination of Gwatney can be read as attempted intimidation of the anti-Obama forces now gaining strength before the Denver convention.
Is the death of Bill Gwatney part of an Obama body count which already includes the names of Donald Young (the murdered gay choirmaster of Rev. Wright’s church) and possibly others?
