Nancy Armstrong, “MsPlacedDemocrat,” RIP; Pursued ACORN with Vigor


Nancy Armstrong was on the “Glenn Beck Program” recently to discuss the tea party movement.

I have just learned that Nancy Armstrong, an ardent researcher of all things ACORN, has died. No cause of death has been reported.

Armstrong ran the MsPlacedDemocrat blog. She lived near Wichita, Kansas, and was only in her mid to late 40s. Her family posted a notice about her passing on her blog.

After campaigning for Hillary Clinton, she became disillusioned with the Democratic Party and left it last year.

I just spoke to her a few days ago. She was a very thorough, determined person who cared about the truth.

Updated Aug. 2, 2009: It is reported that Nancy died of a massive heart attack. She was 49 years of age. I have been informed by another source that the autopsy raised further questions and that the coroner is not yet prepared to officially state a cause of death.
