to use facts against the DNC. Don't you know better Paul?
This may be a first; me linking to a page on the DNC website - but there's a point to be made.
Recently the Kerry campaign filed a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission over the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. In the complaint, the Kerryites claim that the Swiftvets have illegally coordinated their activities with the Bush-Cheney campaign - activity that's illegal under Federal campaign law for IRS section 527 organizations like the Swiftvets.
In keeping with my pet theory about the Dems - that what they accuse the opposition of doing is precisely what they've either done or are doing - I present this page from the DNC website (scroll down to the bottom, under the heading "Raise Your Democratic Voice!" I'll quote the text lest the DNC later "sanitize" (read: delete) this:
The Democratic Party is partnering with MoveOn.org, People for the American Way, Campaign for America's Future, and dozens of other groups representing millions of Americans to organize a massive public mobilization. On Wednesday, May 14, join us by calling and emailing your representatives in Congress to let them know that the majority of Americans oppose more irresponsible tax cuts that go overwhelmingly to the wealthiest sliver of Americans.
The three groups that the Dems name as "partnering" with are all 527 groups. Does this not constitute exactly what the DNC (and for that matter, MoveOn) are accusing the Republicans of doing?
