Irey to Murtha: Do you Approve of Using Fallen Soldiers as Democratic Fund-Raising Tools?
Irey for Congress ^ | July 12, 2006 | Irey for Congress

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.

"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."

I'm sure this is a stupid question, and I love to out the Dems like the idiots they are just as much as anyone else, BUT...

Didn't the Dems say this same thing when Dubya had images of flag draped caskets in his commercials?

Am I wrong?

I am reminded of the biblical references to the "mustard seed".

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.

I believe this is a completely different thing.

A burning, blown up HumV. Flag draped coffins in an aircraft. A rifle with helmet over it.

They are taking the anti-war stance and exploiting our dead military to raise funds for their Party, it's outrageous.

I can only assume it is as misleading and depraved as everything else they print/do/say when it comes to national defense and the war.

Not to mention everything else.

"DUMP the EX-marine NOW!"

I've heard some Marines saying he should not say he was ever a Marine. This Airman agrees with them and he can shove off. He doesn't care about out people in uniform, all he cares about is the lobbyist brother of his that fills his pockets with money because of the money he sends in his direction.

Can I get on the ping list?

I sent Irey a little money from Tennessee, and plan to be at the Gore/Murtha lovefest here Aug. 12. I also contacted Phil Valentine (conservative radio show host from Nashville who led the state's tax revolt a few years ago)today and alerted him about the meet.

Let's come out in force and show Murtha and his ilk what we Americans think about their despicable behavior.

Any suggestions on the upcoming freep of Murtha here in Tennessee? I'm bookmarking all threads with his quotes and articles about his corruptness for ideas.

She has to hit hard. They will try to slaughter her and she is making excellent preemptive stikes. She's a hardworking fireball, that's for sure. She's got the moxie to make some real positive changes for western PA. Murtha is an old mule who needs to be put out to pasture.
