Letter writer is male health-care worker tied to Daily Kos, Obama-Ayers machine
A male health-care worker who appears to be Ellie Light – the letter writer whose name appeared in dozens of newspapers nationwide praising President Obama – also is a diarist for the far-left Daily Kos website and an online friend of an individual tied to a radical pro-Obama group associated with William Ayers' Weathermen terrorist organization.
Winston Steward, 51, of Frazier Park, Calif., told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer he made up the name "Ellie Light" to protect himself from criticism and possible physical attacks from "conservatives." He said he used fake addresses across the country to get local newspapers to publish his letters.
Steward was one of several individuals who claimed to be Light. The Plain-Dealer, which published some of Light's letters, reported Steward's e-mail address matched the address of Light messages sent to U.S. newspapers. The Plain-Dealer also said that to track Steward, it used phone interviews and public records, including those of marriages, property and professional licenses in California and Texas. More>>
