Democrats Cry Foul Over New Republican Fundraising Effort Mentioning War on Terrorism

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats assailed the Republicans Friday for e-mailing a fundraising appeal mentioning the war on terror hours after British authorities disclosed they had disrupted a plot to blow up aircraft headed to the United States.

"In the middle of a war on terror, we need to remain focused on furthering Republican ideas more than ever before," former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said in a letter that asked for donations to the Republican National Committee.

The RNC blamed a low-level staffer for distributing the fundraising appeal, which the party said had been scheduled for release before news of the plot broke.

LSB: Was there ever any doubt that the RNC would use this recent terror scare to their benefit? Or that when caught with their hand in the cookie jar that they would blame some low-level staffer? S.O.P.
