MSNBC: Liddy Dole Facing "Avalanche of Criticism"
by Jonathan Singer, Thu Oct 30, 2008 at 03:32:55 PM EDT
Endangered Republican Senator Liddy Dole, who is facing the fight of her political life in North Carolina, is getting hammered for her scurrilous and over-the-top attacks on her Democratic opponent Kay Hagan. Take a look:
This attack by Dole is totally outside the bounds of acceptable campaign behavior, with the closest thing coming to mind being her predecessor Jesse Helms' despicable "Hands" ad against Harvey Gantt in 1990. Faking a candidate's voice to make it seem as though her opponent said "There is no God"? Unacceptable.
It's time to fight back. Head over to the MyDD Road to 60 Act Blue page and make a contribution to Hagan's campaign now. At present, Hagan has received 172 contributions through the page for a total of about $6,000. Let's get that donor number up to 200 by tomorrow night and send the signal that this type of baseless mudslinging will not be tolerated in this country. Make your contribution today.
By the way... We were at 152 donors earlier today, so we're half way to the goal. So just a few more contributions will put us over the top.
