IREY ADVISORY: DIANA IREY TO CALL FOR FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO MURTHA FUNDRAISING PRACTICES

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

(PITTSBURGH, September 26) -- Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey -- the woman standing up to U.S. Rep. Jack Murtha -- will hold a press availability today, Tuesday, September 26, on the sidewalk outside the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, at 700 Grant Street, in Pittsburgh, at 11 AM.

Irey will release a letter she is delivering today to U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan requesting an investigation into Rep. Murtha's fundraising activities.

Based on news reports, lobbying disclosure reports, Federal Election Commission Records, and a study released last week by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, there is reason to believe Rep. Murtha may have violated federal law.

WHO: PA-12 nominee Diana Irey

WHAT: Press availability

WHERE: Sidewalk in front of the office of the U.S. Attorney

700 Grant Street

Pittsburgh, PA

WHEN: 11 AM

-- 30 --

Paid for by Diana Irey for Congress

What are her chances of unseating Murtha in the election? What are the polls showing?

Murtha is as dirty as they come, but I doubt if they will investigate based on a complaint by a political opponent. It is not like Murtha is a Republican.

Murtha is up by about 12. It is defintitely in play, but it is still likely Murtha will hold on.

People haven't look seriously at this district in decades. The voters will probably be charged up to have a race this close. If Murtha's backers take it for granted and Irey's folks are charged up, the gap between them is easily surmountable.

Poll questions are forbidden on Irey threads. There's no good reason for that, but I enjoy lurking these threads because someone inevitably asks and gets flamed for it. :)

YES! Keep a close eye on Murtha because he and his group are so used to doing it their way they probably think they are entitled to do whatever they choose. He has to follow the law just as everyone does and it's time that is made clear to him.

To: Just A Nobody

I got this E-mail the other day. (yes I'm on their E-mail list)
I'm not too sure what these Republicans are trying to accomplish with all their attacks:

• The Republican Leader in the House says, "I listen to my Democrats friends, and I wonder if they are more interested in protecting the terrorists than protecting the American people."

• Dick Cheney says on national television that anybody who questions him is emboldening the enemy.

• Donald Rumsfeld compares anyone who questions their "stay the course" strategy to Nazi appeasers.

Give me a break. Let there be no doubt that Democrats are united behind the fight against terrorism. Democrats are united behind our troops. And Democrats are united behind a strong America.

But as far as Iraq goes, the truth is that the American people have been way out ahead of the Bush Administration. Sixty percent of the American people disagree with the direction in Iraq because nobody is being held accountable and we're not making any progress.

There's only one hope to get that change and get a new direction; that's a Democratic majority in the House. And the people at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) are leading the charge to make sure that happens. I know you have been a strong activist with the DCCC and that support has made a difference, but today the most important action you can take is to give a gift to the DCCC -- and that's why I'm writing today.

We are in a race against the clock with less than 50 days before the election. I am asking you not to wait until the last minute -- but act now. The House Democrats are pitching in from their own bank accounts and will match every dollar with THREE of their own. But, you have to get it in by September 30th.

Give $35, $50, or more now and triple your donation to help stop the Republican campaign of "smear and fear".

I've never been one to go out front and lead the charge in the elections -- but I learned that these Republicans in charge right now couldn't care less about getting it right in Iraq. They're not interested in what I or anybody else has to say.

While all Americans know that terrorism is a serious threat worth fighting against, the Bush Administration tries to confuse the Iraq War with the larger war on terrorism and continues to fight a war of rhetoric and political slogans instead of one of action.

We can't fly blind like this anymore -- as long as Republicans are in charge, they're just going to keep playing politics instead of doing what needs to be done for the American people. And that's why we need a new direction in this nation and new direction in Congress.

Give $35, $50, or more now and triple your donation to help stop the Republican campaign of "smear and fear".

These Republicans want to convince the public that they're "strong" and Democrats are "weak" -- it doesn't take strength to sit on your backside in an air-conditioned office, pound your chest and insist that our young men and women on the ground "stay the course" in Iraq.

These Democratic men and women running for Congress know things have got to change. They know that we need to stand strong against terrorists instead of just grandstanding. I've traveled around the country and met a lot of these candidates, and they're outstanding people, people I'd be proud to serve alongside in Congress.

We need to support the DCCC's efforts to help carry these candidates across the finish line. The DCCC is putting up television and radio ads exposing the way Republicans have laid down for this president; they are charging around the country building up the get-out-the-vote program that will make sure Americans know what is at stake and make sure their voices are heard. And they need our help to keep it up. It's that simple, and now's the time when your gift to the DCCC will be worth three times as much. Stand with them and stand with me today.

I know you have been a critical activist of the Democratic Party all year and I can't thank you enough. I hope that we can count on you to take the additional action of making a contribution today.

Give $35, $50, or more now and triple your donation to help stop the Republican campaign of "smear and fear".

Thank you for all your help.

Sincerely,

Jack Murtha
Member of Congress, Pennsylvania's 12th District

PS: Democratic candidates are standing up to fear and smear campaigns in congressional districts across the country, and they are fighting back against these ridiculous attacks by Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and all the other Republican leaders. But they need our support, and the DCCC can give it to them better than anybody else around.

Good point but remember:

And remember: Jefferson is going to look good in stripes! :-)

"Poll questions are forbidden on Irey threads"

Not forbidden that I know of, merely tiresome to the point where they've become something of a joke.

So far as I know, no one has released any poll results. If I ever see any, I can assure you that I'll post them, no matter what they say, just to pacify the the "poll junkies".

Frankly, given how easy it is to manipulate "polls" and the fact that they're hardly reliable predictors, I'm at a loss to understand the preoccupation with them.

It's rather like constantly repeating the *fact* that my county has a 2 to 1 Democratic majority of registered voters. Doesn't change the *facts* that: Bush won here in '04; we have 2 Republican county commissioners; even Johnstown voted in a Republican mayor; the vast majority of people in this area do *not* care to be "polled" and generally refuse(to put it politely ;)to participate in them. :)
