In 1996, while managing the U.S. Senate campaign of Woody Jenkins against Mary Landrieu, Perkins paid $82,500 to use the mailing list of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. The campaign was fined $3,000 for filing false disclosure forms in a bid to hide the payment to Duke. Perkins has stated he did not know about the mailing list's connection to Duke.
On May 17, 2001, Perkins gave a speech to the Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist group that has described black people as a retrograde species of humanity. Perkins claimed not to know the groups ideology at the time, but it had been widely publicized in Louisiana and the nation, just two years earlier. The Duke incident surfaced again in the local press in 2002, when Perkins ran for the Republican nomination for the Senate.
In 2010, the Family Research Councilunder Perkins' leadershipwas classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center which characterized the group as "a fount of anti-gay propaganda".[
David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is a former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan,[In 1974, David Duke founded the Louisiana-based Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKKK), a Louisiana Ku Klux Klan organization, shortly after graduating from LSU. He became Grand Wizard of the KKKK. A follower of Duke, Thomas Robb, changed the title of Grand Wizard to National Director, and replaced the Klan's white robes with business suits.[7 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Perkins_ (politician)

Dick Morris, who has made a career out of dishonestly trashing the Clintons, suddenly and conveniently claimed on Monday night's Hannity that then-Attorney General Janet Reno threatened President Clinton in early 1997 by saying that if he didn't re-appoint her as attorney general, she was "going to tell the truth about Waco." After host Sean Hannity said, "I don't remember you telling this story before," Morris replied, "No, it's never been said before." Morris went on to say: "I know that he told me -- Clinton told me -- that I couldn't not appoint Reno because she would have turned on me over Waco. That's the phrase he used."
Predictably, the right-wing blogs immediately highlighted Morris' comments.
However, when Morris wrote about Clinton, Reno, and Waco in his 2004 book, Because He Could, he told a much different story. In fact, he indicated that he had no idea why Clinton reappointed Reno and merely speculated that it "may well have been" that Reno was "demanding reappointment as her price for taking the fall for Waco."

Sleazy Tale of White House Journalist Jeff Gannon
Talons and Gay Porn Websites
From Deborah White, former About.com Guide

Updated May 02, 2005
Gannon or Guckert? Guckert or Gannon? Apparently Jeff Gannon, Bush White House reporter for two years, is James Guckert, pricey gay escort, gay porn website owner and convicted tax cheat.
This tawdry tale would be amusingly juicy if it wasnt so scary. And slimy. Jeff Gannon, aka James Guckert, was repeatedly within ten feet of the President of the United States, yet no one in our faith-based White House seemed to know who he was.
Or did they?
It all started when Journalist Jeff (JJ) lobbed a softball question at a January 26 presidential press conference. You know...like those phony audience plants for Saturday Night Live guest monologues?
Shaking his head in disgust, JJ asked...
Senate Democrats have painted a very bleak picture of the US economy .How are you going to work---you said youre going to reach out to these people---how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?
The President as peacemaker. The President as victim. The President who works hard to reach across the aisle. It was a perfectly-phrased partisan question.
Inquiring minds want to know and that includes liberal bloggers. Who is JJ and where did he come from? Top bloggers DailyKos and Atrios investigated Mr. Gannons background. With a bit of Googling and what not, they unearthed a treasure trove of tidbits about JJ.
Here are the basics about escapade JJ. Bear in mind that new facts are still emerging. AmericaBlog reports today that JJ was photographed in early 2003 sporting a White House hard pass, implying he passed a Bush team background check.
- Feb 28, 2003 At a White House briefing, JJ asks Press Secretary Ari Fleischer a question. JJ is caught on C-Span camera that day in the White House briefing room. No one now seems to know what news outlet JJ was working for.
- Late March 2003 Talon News is formed right after the start of the War in Iraq. Talons volunteer staff has no journalism experience. Talons news consists of recycled RNC and White House press releases and stances. Talon has no subscribers.

Talon News is an American website which became newsworthy in January 2005 because alleged irregularities in the background of its chief correspondent, known as Jeff Gannon, came to light. Gannon, born James Dale Guckert, resigned from Talon on February 8, 2005. The Talon News website was shut down February 23, 2005, but was later revived as a parody.
2.1 Jeff Gannon/James Guckert
4 External links
 OrganizationA virtual organization with no physical office space or newsroom, Talon News was owned by a conservative activist group called GOPUSA. Robert Eberle, the president and CEO of GOPUSA, held both titles for Talon News as well.
According to Media Matters, "Talon News apparently consists of little more than (Robert) Eberle,(Jeff) Gannon, and a few volunteers, and is virtually indistinguishable from GOPUSA.com .
Initially, Talon News made its articles available on their website, but in September 2004, moved them to GOPUSA.com and simply re-directed visitors asking for the full news articles there with the statement "This story can be found on our #1 client GOPUSA!". In January 2005, during the controversy, Talon News removed information from its biography section regarding some of its employees, including the reporter at the center of the controversy, Jeff Gannon.
The Talon News site went entirely off line on February 23, 2005, to "re-evaluate operations." Since May 2007, the Talon News site has been a parody, and its pages link to The Firesign Theatre's site.
 ControversyMedia Matters raised the question of Talon News' legitimacy with respect to Gannon's loaded questions at White House press conferences, such as asking then President George W. Bush how he would work with Democrats who had "divorced themselves from reality." Washington Post columnist Dan Froomkin noted in his February 19, 2004, column that "Within the press corps, Gannon is known for asking softball questions." Media Matters also discovered that the Talon News operation seemed as more of an arm of the PAC GOPUSA than a legitimate journalistic enterprise. Both groups were run out of the same address (Eberle's home), Talon News items were culled from the GOPUSA website, and Talon News "journalists" lacked significant journalistic experience but had a lengthy history in conservative activism.
The Standing Committee of Correspondents rejected Gannon's application for a Capitol Hill press pass because of Talon News' lack of independence from a political organization. Committee chairman Jim Drinkard wrote in his letter:
The application for accreditation to the press galleries states that "members of the press shall not engage in lobbying or paid advertising, publicity, promotion, work for any individual, political party, corporation, organization, or agency of the Federal Government." Talon News has not demonstrated to the satisfaction of the committee that there is a separation from GOPUSA/Millions of Americans.com .
 Jeff Gannon/James GuckertMain article: Jeff Gannon
Gannon submitted his resignation from Talon News effective February 8, 2005. On February 10, Gannon said in a CNN interview that Talon News is a legitimate conservative online news service. He also stated; "Talon News is a separate, independent news division. I work for Talon News. I write articles for Talon News." On February 20, 2005, The New York Times quoted Eberle, who said he had no inkling that Gannon may have created pornographic web sites or offered himself as a gay escort. If he had known, Eberle said, "I don't think I would have brought him on."
In 2007, Gannon published a book titled "The Great Media War", in which he attacks his critics and criticizes liberal media bias. He maintained a blog through 2007.
