Vanderboegh: “I stand by my sources.”

USA --(Ammoland.com)- “Issa spokesperson denies Fast & Furious ‘sell-out’ rumor,” Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman reported yesterday, citing exclusive information he obtained from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform

“The allegation, which appears to have been repeated by at least two different internet blogs, is that House Speaker John Boehner has hampered the congressional Fast and Furious probe, and that some kind of deal has been cut to derail or at least slow down the investigation,” Workman wrote, citing an initial blog by Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars that has since taken on a life of its own as others have repeated it, sometimes adding unsourced details.

“There is no truth to these rumors that the speaker or anyone in leadership is hampering Oversight or (Sen. Charles) Grassley’s investigation,” Committee Press Secretary Becca Watkins responded to Workman, flatly denying the allegation.

This follows a response from Boehner’s camp calling the allegation “absurd and untrue.”

“I am not responsible for others who take my stories and rewrite them with their own spin. I am responsible for what I write. As I told Workman, I stand by my sources. I still do,” Vanderboegh responded in a post this morning.
