Jeb Eddy joins thousands of demonstrators to protest the war in Iraq on Saturday.

The only problem is that he’s a complete fraud. Here’s the information on his political contributions, from the FEC (via Newsmeat):

It’s the same story at OpenSecrets.org

Crockspot at Conservative Underground was the one who first used a little Google-fu to debunk this guy’s con job. The San Francisco Chronicle has fallen for this guy’s act on more than one occasion, which should hardly come as a surprise.

Shock & Blog has more links to the Google evidence against Eddy.

Update: In case you’re wondering Jeb Eddy is not a fake identity. See the photo (first picture in the third row) on this page for proof.

Update 2: Vlae Kershner, news director for the San Francisco Chronicle web site, responds to a reader inquiry about the Eddy’s identification, “Thanks for writing. It’s an Associated Press photo. I removed it from the two articles where I could find it on the website.. No word on wether a correction will be issued for this February 24, 2005 article. The other suposed Republican in that article, Margaret Garvin, she’s a Democratic plant too…

Update 3: (April 24, 2006) He’s back!!!
