Now THAT's looting

Responding to the alarming cries from the right (including the Wall St. Journal's Peggy Noonan) to kill looters, Roger Ailes (no, not that Roger Ailes...) writes:

"I got your looter right here":


The Missouri attorney general, Jay Nixon, filed a lawsuit this afternoon against InternetDonations.org, the hub for a constellation of Web sites erected over the last several days purporting to collect donations for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Also named in the lawsuit, Mr. Nixon said, is the apparent operator of the donation sites, Frank Weltner, a St. Louis resident and radio talk show personality with ties to neo-Nazi organizations and the notorious Web site JewWatch.com.
Don't suppose this or massive government ineptitude will get much play in the same venues chastising looters? (Roger Ailes)
