Like many others I watched the “town hall” meeting in Portsmouth NH with the supposedly randomly selected audience.
The second person “randomly” selected to ask a question was a young girl called Julia Hall from Malden MA (asks question at 29 mins 25 secs into the video).
Julia read the following question off a piece of paper: “As I was walking in I saw a lot of signs outside saying mean things about reforming healthcare. How do kids know what is true and why do people want a new system that can help more of us”.
This randomly asked question gave Obama the perfect opportunity to dismiss talk about “death panels that will pull the plug on Grandma” and to blame Republicans for everything. Over on the town hall comments thread at AR15.com a user by the name of AtomicPunk09 discovered someone on facebook who might possibly be Julia’s mother and had a photo of her with Obama:
(Edit 8/12, 9.30am EST: Facebook page has now disappeared)
All old information and it cannot be proven that Kathleen is Julia’s mother, right????
Hold on, look who is sitting next to Julia in the video:
Another “coincidence” is that Julia said she lives in Malden MA and Kathleen Manning Hall’s campaign contributions list the occupation “Legal Asst, Looney and Grossman LLP” and a home address in Malden MA:
Looks like she donated $636 to Obama in 2008.
But wait, there’s more:
This lists donations to Obama of $230 on 6/15/07, $250 on 9/28/07, $500 on 9/30/07, $300 on 3/2/08
On that link we have the $636 previously mentioned from “Kathleen Manning Hall” but we also have $1,355 donated to Obama by “Kathleen Hall, Legal Assistant, Looney & Grossman” at the same address.
(as an aside Looney and Grossman loves Democrats – their employees donated $12,101 in total to Democrats and $0 to Republicans)
Back to Kathleen’s Facebook Page, here are some of her Facebook friends that had unique names so I googled to see if they were Democratic insiders:
Martha Coakley, (Democrat) Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts http://www.marthacoakley.com
Adam Parkhomenko, former aide to Hillary Clinton, Democrat running for VA House of Delegates (who has the support of the Brady Campaign, President Clinton and Wes Clark) http://voteadam.com

And one more thing… according to talk radio host Mike Gallagher, little Julia Hall was invited to attend the White House Easter egg roll earlier this year. Hmmm… I wonder why.
Oh, and just in case all you looney lefties out there think that planting people at town hall events is new to the Obama administration, Michelle Malkin has an informative expose’ titled ‘The Illustrated Guide To Obamacare Human Props’ on her conservatastic website. – http://michellemalkin.com/2009/08/12/the-illustrated-guide-to-obamacare-human-props
