John Cook of Radar has put a name on the mysterious person who seems to have set up the bogus Stopsexpredators blog that was instrumental in outing Mark Foley in a premature October Surprise op. The Human Rights Campaign was quick to disavow and fire the (at the time) unnamed worker for it. But through research, Cook discovered that the only person who fit the description offered by HRC (incidentally, a Soros—funded operation) was Lane Hudson. There is no firm confirmation, but only one person meets the description.
And Lane Hudson turns out to have a history as a staffer for Democrat office holders!
Hudson, a onetime staffer to Sen. Fritz Hollings (D—SC) and former Democratic South Carolina Gov. Jim Hodges, is 29.
Calls to the HRC and to Hudson were not returned.
To repeat a demand of many Democrats about 911, "connect the dots!"

Update from Clarice Feldman:
per a researcher at Just One Minute:
Lane Hudson of SC is referenced in a 2003 Kerry speech as,
"...former Governor Jim Hodges of South Carolina, and his staffer Lane Hudson...".
A Lane Hudson was also listed as staff in this report from the 2001—2002 Congress.
Lane Hudson is evidently on staff with HRC, or at least has an email address through them and organizes event(s) for them.
Per Radar, this connection may now be defunct.
If I read the abstract on this (now expired) link, Lane Hudson of SC is 27 and in real estate.

Delegate status: Congressional District ... T. Lane Hudson , Charleston, S.C. , 27, real estate.
I don't know if this is the same Lane Hudson that is affiliated with HRC and hosted at least 2 HRC events in Michigan this week. If SC Hudson is a former staffer of the Dem governor, that would seem to indicate a possibility that he was also a Democrat Senate staffer in 2001—2002 and a Democrat delegate in 2004.
Is it possible that the "leaked emails" routed not through a former page but a Democratic staffer / operative who may also be a gay activist working for HRC?
for the 2001—2002 Staff reference. You have to do a search and find,; it's buried in a list.
