The Soros-McClellan Connection

Think there is no more news about Scott McClellan’s Bush-bashing book?
It seems that George Soros, the same guy who donated large sums of money in a failed effort to defeat President Bush's bid for re-election in 2004, is really behind Scott McClellan’s disgraceful book.
From Little Green Footballs:
The company that published Scott McClellan’s new Bush-bashing book is PublicAffairs Books, and their Editor at Large is a guy named Peter Osnos: About The Century Foundation.
The owner of PublicAffairs Books is a company called Perseus Book Group. Here’s their ownership tree: Perseus Books Home.
The firm is owned by Perseus Funds Group (holding company Perseus LLC), a capital management firm that grew from about $20 million in 1995 to over $2 billion now. Big infusions of cash seemed to help it grow exponentially, and it closed funds almost as fast as it opened them. The board has tons of liberals from the Clinton and Carter Administrations, with far-left credentials that almost put Osnos’ to shame. Their web site is here: PERSEUS - merchant bank and private equity fund management.
If you go to the New York Department of State web site and enter “Perseus” in the "Business Organization" search, you get this on page 2 of the results:
They go on to show a direct link between the two companies. It would seem that Soros has gotten the last laugh after-all...
How does this get by us? This has been on LGF for over two days and no on picked up on this little fact? I mean, I myself just learn of this from see-dubya via michellemalkin.com and so I can understand a little. I just hope this becomes big news all too soon.
