Skip to comments.Irey to Murtha: Do you Approve of Using Fallen Soldiers as Democratic Fund-Raising Tools?
Posted on 07/12/2006 2:24:49 PM PDT by Just A Nobody
(MONONGAHELA, July 12) Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey responding to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraising video using images of caskets of fallen American soldiers today released the following statement:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee this week sent out a fundraising video using images of caskets of fallen American soldiers. Raising campaign cash off the deaths of our honored dead is revolting. Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel should be ashamed of themselves and so should any Democrat who stands for this.
Consequently, I have a new question for Jack Murtha today: Do you approve of exploiting fallen American heroes for political fundraising purposes? If not, will you join me in demanding that Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel apologize, and then insist that the DCCC forward any funds raised off this disgusting solicitation to appropriate charities?
The DCCC video can be seen here: http://www.dccc.org/multimedia/archives/new_directions
Wow! She is one tough lady. Every GOP candidate for Congress should be so bold.
I sent some $$ to the Irey campaign online. As a side note, I also sent a check to Catherine Davis, who is running against Cynthia McKinney in GA. Ms Davis sent me a handwritten note of thanks! That is a class act. Compare her to the wretched Cynthia.
Check this out!
"New star Murtha is worrying Dems
Asked by moderator Tim Russert about sites for redeployment, Murtha replied: ''We can go to Okinawa. . . .
Federal prosecutors designated him an unindicted co-conspirator in the Abscam investigation 26 years ago. I was reminded of it after Murtha became a candidate for majority leader, not by a Republican hit man but a Democratic former colleague in the House. In a long political career, Murtha has made bitter enemies inside his party who are alarmed by his new stature.
In 1980, the FBI named him as one of eight members of Congress videotaped being offered bribes by a phony Arab sheik.
The other seven targets took cash and were convicted in federal court.
The videotape showed Murtha declining to take cash but expressing interest in further negotiations, while bragging about his political influence.
Murtha testified against the popular Rep. Frank Thompson, which created lifelong enemies in the Democratic cloakroom. The House Ethics Committee exonerated Murtha of misconduct charges by a largely party-line vote, after which the committee's special counsel resigned in protest."
She's going to beat murtha and we're all going to dance on the moon!
I like that guy with the Twilight Zone comercial.
There is no limit on how low the Rats will sink. Scum is too nice a word to describe our enemy within, the Rats.
It's Sick and just makes the comlib Moonbats even more slimier.
We can dig in on Wake Island!
That video is sick. Both my Dem Senators and Dem Representative are getting calls and emails from me this afternoon.
Didn't the Dems say this same thing when Dubya had images of flag draped caskets in his commercials?
Am I wrong?
That's the one. His commercial is great.
The lesson seemed to be that big things can come from extremely small beginnings. Irey's campaign seems to be a mustard seed that is sprouting and growing rapidly.
It is time to clean the HOUSE!
WooHoo! From your lips............ ;*)
Yes she is! I would venture to say, "we ain't seen nuthin' yet!"
