Kos was on the Dean payroll. Here's the bigger news: However unseemly that is--and it's plenty unseemly--Kos's lone fig-leaf disclosure post is still better than Jon Lauck and Jason Van Beek, the South Dakota bloggers on Thune's payroll.
But here's the big question: Why was the Dean campaign wasting its money on Kos? Presumably Kos would have given them all the fawning coverage in the world anyway, right? Wouldn't Kos have wanted to do this because it's something he believes in?
What you have here is another example of Dean, who ran a campaign based in part on promises of fiscal responsibility, being wasteful with his money.
