"Black Wednesday." Melson on suicide watch? Or just about to roll? Hearing revelations hit fifth floor of ATF HQ "like a bomb."
Heard from two sources today that the revelations at yesterday's hearing (dubbed "Black Wednesday" over at CleanUpATF.org) about Acting ATF Director Kenneth "Gunwalker Man" Melson hooked into Internet video of the Lone Wolf Trading Company hit the Fifth Floor of ATF HQ "like a bomb."
One source said, "Melson looks like he's been suckered punched and then run over by a Mack truck." He added, "I hope they've got him on suicide watch."
Another repeated a rumor to the same effect and then added, "The whispering is that he's ready to roll. He's been waffling back and forth on the decision for months, but the thinking is that this latest stuff at the hearing will push him into Issa and Grassley's lap. He's the (administration's) designated goat, he knows it, and he really doesn't have much choice."
Well, Ken, all I can tell you is if you want to roll and don't have Grassley's number, give me a call. I'll be glad to help you out. I've got Sharyl Attkisson's number too.
