Money Bomb

By Libby

Today is the anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation and also the day of the Strange Bedfellows money bomb. The Caucus has the short version of the current plans for the money.
AccountabilityNow, which aims to play a political role from which groups like the American Civil Liberties Union are barred, plans to buy print ads with the new funds criticizing Mr. Hoyer and Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Miami-area Republican, for co-sponsoring a measure endorsing a naval blockade of Iran, and they also plan to buy space to call for Congress to look into the F.B.I.’s handling of the anthrax investigation. By 2010, AccountabilityNow hopes to field primary candidates that support its civil libertarian, anti-war positions.
We could certainly use more candidates with those kind of creds.
