Iowans for Romney: New York Times "Explaining Away" Romney's Fundraising Success

Excerpted from this post at Iowans for Romney

Seen this article from the NY Times yet? Their lead-off Paragraph: 'Mitt Romney's presidential campaign said Monday that it had raised $20 million in the first quarter, tapping two distant but rich networks - Wall Street and the Mormon Church - to easily outpace his better-known Republican primary rivals.' There are a full six paragraphs devoted to Romney's poltical ties with Mormons and they drag up the "pseudo-scandal" of Romney officials and church officials meeting to supposedly coordinate efforts. However, they have NO evidence (yet because this information has not been made public) that "the Mormon Church" helped him raise this money. I'm sure plenty of Mormons contributed . . . but that's not what the piece says . . . it says that "the Mormon Church" was "tapped". A slip of the keyboard? . . . or a targeted attack?
