Those poor underfunded Democrats, now that they have led the charge in protecting incumbents and silencing critics with CFR, are now leading the charge in soliciting international funds to further their cause.
Frustrated with the lack of domestic support, left-leaning website MoveOn.org has apparently been reaching beyond American borders to generate cash revenue over the internet!
The provocative international fundraising strategy threatens to embroil the presidential candidacies of General Wesley Clark and former Vermont Governor Howard Dean.
Both men are named on international fundraising websites suggesting donations to MoveOn.org.
Meanwhile, MoveOn.org, which has been running ads critical of the Bush Administration, has named an “International Campaigns Director,” the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
It is not clear how much money has been raised — to date– from foreign sources, but political websites from London to Portugal to Montreal are directing their citizens to stop the American president George Bush by donating to MoveOn.org!
Wesley Clark’s official campaign website has been offering a link to “Canada For Clark”, which in turn advises Canadians: “Non-Americans can’t by law, give money to any particular candidate’s campaign. But we can support pro-democracy, progressive American organizations like MoveOn.org, which do their best to spread the ugly truth about Bush and publicize the Democratic message. Click here to donate to MoveOn.org.”
The top traffic referrer to CanadaForClark.com is Clark’s Official Campaign Website.
Cute. I guess with Clinton out of office, the Chinese money dried up. At any rate, it appears the Swedes are a non-player at this time.
Er – didn’t China have them bought off years ago…
Now now, Katrina Leung was a Republican fundraiser. Let’s not get mixed up here.
How about that Billion lost by Rev. Moon on the Washington Times?
I know that isn’t a campiagn finance issue, but Republicans do get international $$$ also.
Ah yes. Drudge. The bastion of well researched information.
Slow news day, John?
John- not to pile on here, but is that the same Drudge who broke the scrupulously-researched “Hate Bush” party in Holywood?
When MoveOn.org has burned as much money as Rev. Moon (a non-citizen) has lost on his conservative advocacy newspaper, the Washington Times, let me know.
Are you suggesting that foreigners should not be allowed to own newspapers in this country?
Care to tell me exactly what law that’s based on?
