NRCC wants Herseth to return DCCC cash. All $608 of it.
From a press release yesterday by the National Republican Congressional Committee:
Does Stephanie Herseth Agree with Despicable DCCC Fundraising Tactics?
Herseth must repudiate tactics and return DCCC money
WASHINGTON – This week, the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) released a fundraising solicitation video containing images of caskets of U.S. soldiers killed in the War on Terror. Here is a link to the DCCC video: http://www.dccc.org/r/17033/483923.
The DCCC’s fundraising solicitation also contained a fabricated mug shot of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay marked “91108GOP” – a very troubling and short-sighted combination of numbers to use. At best, the DCCC is politicizing the tragedies of 9/11; at worst, they are suggesting that another terrorist attack is imminent as a result of a Republican-controlled Congress.
This cycle, Stephanie Herseth has accepted $608 in contributions from the DCCC.
“Washington Democrats have gone beyond the pale of politically acceptable discourse by exploiting the ultimate sacrifice of U.S. soldiers in order to raise campaign cash,” National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Rep. Tom Reynolds said. “If Stephanie Herseth wants to be known as a serious candidate who supports our men and women fighting so bravely abroad and the families of those who have fallen, she ought to repudiate this video and immediately return the DCCC money.”
