WASHINGTON (AP) — A television writer and fund-raiser for John Kerry is the first six-figure donor to a new group that is criticizing President Bush's National Guard service during the Vietnam War.

Daniel O'Keefe, a writer/producer whose work includes such sitcoms as "The Drew Carey Show" and "Seinfeld," donated $100,000 this week to Texans for Truth, an Austin-based group that plans to run anti-Bush television ads starting Monday.

The group spent about $100,000 on its first ad buy, an anti-Bush commercial that starts Monday in the presidential battleground states Arizona, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

In addition to his Texans for Truth donation, O'Keefe has given at least $29,000 to Democratic candidates and national party committees in the 2003-04 election cycle.

Why is this just a "yawn" for the MSM, while they were outraged that a Republican gave the Swifties $100K?

TFT is a spin off from another organization that has "generous donation of startup funds" from MoveOn.org.

TFT = MOveOn.org

Check out the TFT page at FactCheck.org and it "Democracy" something that MOveOn.org funded. TFT spins off from that so MOveOn.org has a "cutout" and plausible deniability. MoveOn.org has all of Tricky Dick Nixon's tricks down pat.

Soros, via TFT and MoveOn.org is the closest anyone has come to Nixon's Dirty Tricks since Nixon.

> Daniel O'Keefe, ... donated $100,000 this week ...

An over-limit amount?
To a 527?
After the BCRA cut-off date?
Do we have an FEC violation here?

(entirely apart from being money straight down the toilet)

TV screenwriting must pay pretty damn well. If you write suggestive, mindless drivel.

I have given up on network television, network news, and movies. I refuse to support these left-wing Commie hacks and my life is better for it. Try it...free yourself from the "programmers".

What I enjoy most about all these huge contributions is that if they are going to sinister kerry and his side kick all I can say is that they are going down the toilet. Remember to flush the Johns....I borrowed that line.

With all due respect to Nixon, he never thought of stuff like this.

Nope. Individuals can give as much as they like to 527s. It's unions and corporations which have to cease donating to 527s, as of last Thursday.

I trust we will be treated to his name and address as well, just like the SBVT supporter.

I'm sure every story written about this people will talk of how they are backed by big time Democrat donor Daniel O'Keefe.

Oh wait, he's a Democrat...

Heidi Fliess would have been a better investment for him. Either way he's screwed.

(bind rib-cage before reading following comment...you have been warned)

Impossible.
Everyone know that Campaign Finance Reform took the money out of political campaigns.

At least that what RELIABLE SOURCES like CBS told me.

You're right, Kerry's WORSE than Nixon. Though they BOTH lied about Cambodia.

No, no. no.

You don't understand, do you?

A story like this is relevent ONLY if a GOP supporter gives money to a 527.

(sarcasm off)
