Carter's Grandson Aided Romney Video Release

James Carter IV, a Dunwoody resident, admits 'satisfaction' over the controversial development.

The Dunwoody grandson of former president and Georgia governor Jimmy Carter arranged for the release of the controversial video of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, according to media reports.

WSB-TV and others have reported that James Carter IV of Dunwoody tracked down the person who did the hidden-camera video of Romney, then leaked it to the magazine Mother Jones.

The video has gone viral. It was secretly taped at a fundraiser in Florida. Romney told attendees that 47 percent of Americans “believe they are victims” and that the government should provide for them.

James Carter IV told WSB that Romney’s remarks fit the image that Democrats are trying to portray.

“One of them is he's this out-of-touch rich guy.  Another one he doesn't care about the middle class,” Carter said.

Carter IV said Jimmy Carter, a Democrat who was president from 1976-80 and governor from 1970-74, congratulated him on his involvement in the video’s release.

Carter IV, who is an unemployed opposition researcher, said he has received  job offers since the video's release.

As to your question, do I agree with C4's motive, 'Oh hell yeah!" In politics revenge is like foreplay, Mittens spent a good deal of time pointing the the many, obvious deficiencies of the Carter Administration. Note to Mitt: Assume everything you say is being recorded, Chicago rules in play.

Unemployed opposition researcer? Fancy term for loser. He is in the 47%.

By any chance, is this the same Carter grandson that was caught breaking & entering while under the influence of drugs, as reported by Channel 46 News, a few years ago? Just curious to know.

Romney should sue the pants off him!
