Yeah, Right

First para of LifeShite's report of today's preliminary hearing for Dr Tiller's alleged assassin:
Scott Roeder, the former militia member who has no ties to the pro-life movement, will face a September trial on charges of killing late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller. Roeder plead not guilty after a day-long hearing where witnesses talked about how he shot and killed Tiller at his church.

Yeah, no ties except for this:
In a phone interview Friday, Roeder said he was upset at the president of Operation Rescue, Troy Newman, who had condemned the killing and said his organization had nothing to do with Roeder.

“He said that I never was a member and I never contributed any money,” Roeder said. “Well, my gosh, I’ve got probably a thousand dollars worth of receipts, at least, from the money I’ve donated to him.”

Roeder said he wrote Newman a letter from jail.

“I told him, ‘You better get your story straight because my lawyer said it’d be good for me to show that I was supporting a pro-life organization.’ ”

Operation Rescue: InnocenceFAIL. He's pleading innocent, that means the dominoes are about to start falling.

Terry will have him killed and blame it on pro-choice folks. Mark my words...

Pleads innocent because he has no guilt.

LieSite was so desparate to disclaim Roeder as a member in good standing of the mainstream anti-choice movement that they said variant of "Scott Roeder is a former militia nut with absolutely zero ties to the pro-life movement" at least three times in that article.
