The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has sent out a fundraising e-mail to its supporters, seeking to bring in money as a reaction to the Tea Party protests that have disrupted Democrats' town hall meetings.
The e-mail links to this Web video, attacking three villains Michael Steele, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck for being behind this:
"We must stand against this tiny, vocal minority," the e-mail says. "The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has set a goal to raise $50,000 online by Friday, Aug. 14." (Emphasis theirs.)
Check out the full e-mail, after the jump.
All week, fringe, far-right organizations funded by shady, unreported sources have been ginning up their supporters to disrupt Democratic town hall meetings. The goal: kill every attempt at health care reform and wound President Obama. One leaked memo written by a leader of the Tea Party Patriots tells protesters to "Watch for an opportunity to yell out. ... The goal is to rattle him."
Things have really gotten out of hand. Just see it for yourself:
We must stand against this tiny, vocal minority. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has set a goal to raise $50,000 online by Friday, Aug. 14. Make a contribution toward the goal today. Even a gift of $5 can make a difference.
