Jimmy Carter's grandson has emerged as a key player in the release of a secret video that has embarrassed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

James Carter IV, an opposition researcher, put a reporter from the liberal magazine Mother Jones in touch with a source who had the video of Romney talking to a closed door meeting in May, New York Magazine reports.

In the video, Romney tells the meeting in Boca Raton, Fla., that his role in his campaign is not to worry about the 47 percent of Americans who, he says, "believe that they are victims, who believe that the government has the responsibility to care for them."

The younger Carter told the magazine's Intel section, "I've been searching for clips on Republicans for a long time, almost every day. I just do it for fun."

The magazine says small clips from the $50,000-a-plate gathering, which was held on May 17, after Romney had effectively clinched the GOP nomination, have been floating around the web for months. But Carter managed to find the person New York calls "the mystery uploader of the clip" and put him or her in touch with Mother Jones Washington bureau chief, David Corn.

Carter told New York once he had put the two people in contact with each other, he "butted out."

"Any time that you can find a clip that strengthens the narrative already established, that's what becomes a big deal," he said.

True that.

Those Carters don't fall far from the tree, did they? The grandson is unemployed, or was. Now I heard he has the offers piling in from the liberals and has the personal praise from "Poppa". :frown-new:

If my grandfather held the title of "Worst President in Modern Times", and there was a chance that his title could be taken by another bad President, then I would probably support the challenger.:biggrin-new:

The article says the young Carter does opposition research: "James Carter IV, an opposition researcher..."

That is actually a job. A distasteful one for a bottom feeder, but one does get paid for it. So this guy is Amy's kid?

Good catch, Gina! It's amazing how only a minute and a half of tape can feel like hours! The guy is the most BORING speaker. But he does indeed say, "I believe in redistribution."
