Steve Doocy: David Brock’s ‘American Bridge’ Research Group Has ‘290-Page Bag Of Dirt’ On Paul Ryan

On Monday, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy spoke with The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese about the connection Media Matters founder David Brock (pictured) might have to the Obama re-election effort, specifically in the form of a PAC going after new VP pick Paul Ryan.

American Bridge, Coglianese explained, an opposition research group, had “flopped financially,” with Brock lying to the New York Times about how much money the group had taken in. But now — thanks to the financial backing of George Soros — it’s back on its feet and going after Romney and Ryan. What’s more, he added, the group shares office space, workers and funding with Media Matters, with Brock at the helm of both.

The group has now come out with a “290-page bag of dirt,” as Doocy described it, about Paul Ryan. “I just don’t see how this is legal,” he said. Doocy gave no hint about what information that “bag of dirt” might contain, but as we reported on Saturday, it does cover Ryan’s childhood allowance policy and his stint driving the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile.
