GotNews.com’s reporting has been confirmed yet again now that Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has dropped out of the race for Speaker of the House.
First, a little background. In January of this year we reported about the affair rumors plaguing Kevin McCarthy and Renee Ellmers. We reached out to both congressional staffs but there was no comment regarding the affair allegations. In the months since we heard from multiple sources in Bakersfield, North Carolina, and DC confirming those rumors.
Second, both the National Enquirer — don’t laugh they brought down John Edwards! — and Hustler Magazine — don’t laugh they brought down Bob Livingston! — contacted me about stories that they were going to run regarding McCarthy and Ellmers. So did a reporter from the New York Times.
Third, we targeted the stories we had written for the congressional districts of Ellmers and McCarthy and heard back from sources within those congressional districts.
Fourth, Congressman Walter Jones wrote a letter to his fellow colleagues saying that anyone suffering from moral lapses should not be speaker.
Fifth, using a computer program called Piwik GotNews.com tracks IP addresses of those who visit. Our traffic was very Capitol Hill heavy over the last few days.
Sixth, Ellmers’s high-priced counsel hit GotNews.com with a “cease and desist” letter. We will defend ourselves in court if need be.
Seventh, Ellmers gave an odd quote to the media about her vote for speaker. Even cuckservative Matt Lewis noted it:
Ellmers had a rather interesting quote in The Hill today that can plausibly be read as dovetailing with the rumors. “[McCarthy] has not spoken to me personally for my vote, and Jason Chaffetz has, so that’s where I am right now,” she said, adding: “I’m apparently not high on his priority list.”
Eighth, I am told by Bakersfield sources that when I asked Kevin McCarthy’s very religious wife about the Ellmers rumors she was taken aback. She was present today at the conference announcing he wasn’t going to run for Speaker.
Ninth, even the media is recognizing that GotNews.com scooped them.
Hate to give him attn but guy who wrote post outlining affair says he was hit w/cease & desist by Ellmers' lawyer: http://t.co/EmKPThL6HE

Our friend Weev gets it.
It's pretty fucking terrible that none of the media is giving Chuck Johnson credit for forcing McCarthy out over his infidelity.

Even cuckservative Matt Lewis recognizes it. (Though he’s wrong when he writes that McCarthy denies the affair. Only Ellmers’s attorney denies it.)
Hearing 2 theories explaining McCarthy's decision: 1. Freedom Caucus showed they were going to make his life hell, & 2. Rumors of an affair.

(By the way, Matt. It’s both).
Finally, you may, for whatever reason, not like me. You may not doubt my efficacy anymore. GotNews.com and Charles C. Johnson are here to stay. Like our heroes Matt Drudge, Joseph Pulitzer, and Andrew Breitbart we’ve become contenders despite persecution.
Charles C. Johnson has another scalp. Kevin McCarthy is done thanks to Chuck! pic.twitter.com/2wZ7adpLWZ
