The conspiracy theorists point to Brietbart’s speech at CPAC in February wherein he said he had video of Barak Obama in college that he would release during the heat of the presidential campaign to vette the president.
Here’s that portion of Breitbart’s CPAC address:
Later in the speech Breitbart said he had copies of emails that would prove that the mainstream media is conspiring with lefitist radicals to ensure Obama’s reelection and the destruction of the United States.
Here is the entire CPAC speech. The email comment is at about the 11:10 mark.
The Los Angeles coroner’s office is expected to perform an autopsy tomorrow.
Conservative Commentor Andrew Breitbart died unexpectedly of natural causes early this morning. He was 43 years old.
With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.
Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.
We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.
Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:
I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.
Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.
Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.
