Reverend Jeremiah Horndog???

Just when you thought there weren't enough bad things to report about Reverend Jeremiah Wright (former pastor for Obama), there's more...

Seems that Rev. Wright stole his wife from a parishioner who sought counseling for his troubled marriage, according to the New York Post. Delmer Reed, a former investigator for the Illinois Secretary Of State, explained it all to reporters about how his marriage was on the rocks for a time, and how he tried to save it by seeking counseling at UCC Trinity. He wouldn't go into too many details for the sake of his children, not wanting them to have a negative view of their step-father. Too late for that.

The Wright family, soon to move into a $2 million house with a $10 million expense account, denied the allegation. Naturally.

I can't say one way or the other if the Rev.Wright had anything to do with the marital troubles between Delmer and Remah Reed,but if a man is to be believed than he should start by being truthful.
Delmer Reed worked for the Illinois Secretary of State's office as a Manager and not as an Investigator.

The occupation of Delmer Reed is as it appears in the New York Post story.

But since we are now using Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus as the standard then Reverend Wright is not to be believed in anything. Nor is Hillary Clinton...or her husband...or Barack Hussein Obama for that matter,
nor anyone posting comments under the name ANONYMOUS.

I just happened to come accross the
comment by anonymous...I read the New York Post article after which I checked with the Illinois Secretary of State's Office and I confirmed that Delmer Reed who allegelly gave an interview to a reporter for the New York Post was employed by the Illinois Secretary of State and held a position as a manager and never held the title of an investigator which is a sworn law enforcement position within that office.
What anonymous posted was in fact correct.
Whether or not Delmer Reed's allegation is true the Doctrine of
Falsus in uno,falsus in omnibus would be applicable as used in Anonymous's argument since it appears that Delmer Reed misled the
New York Post reporter by misrepresenting the last position he held when he was employed by the Illinois Secretary of State's Office,hence his(Reed)allegation takes on a nebulous appearance of truth.
because a person use anonymous as
his/her identity does not render the Doctrine of Falsus in uno, falsus in ominbus ineffective.

Okay, let's come back down to Earth here for a second.

First of all I think we can all agree that the NY Post article states clearly that Reed was an investigator whether or not it was actually correct.

Second of all, both of you are assuming that the NY Post was told by Reed himself that he was an investigator rather than a manager. None of us know this for sure, but it would serve no purpose for Reed to lie about his job title in spite of the fact that "investigator" is a sworn law enforcement position. If it mattered that much the reporter would have verified that information. It is also quite possible that the reporter himself either made an assumption about the job title or was given false information by the Illinois Sec of State's office.

Thirdly, as a former loan officer, finance company manager, and investigator of credit worthiness, all in the State of Illinois (at the time), my experience with state employees is that Illinois only verifies employment by mail. This may have changed since I changed occupations, but either way the office is closed until Monday.

Forthly, I suppose it is true that one using ANONYMOUS as a name doesn't automatically make them false. But it does lower their credibility in my view, as does someone who makes up a name just to make one comment posting. My real name is on my blog, above my picture on the left and at the bottom of every posting. I see no reason to misrepresent myself, nor hide my identity. For responding to comments I use the title name of the blog so the reader knows immediately they are dealing with the blog author.

Thanks for stopping by.
