    Democrats' Anti-Bush Petition Seeks Funds
    By DEVLIN BARRETT
    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    WASHINGTON (AP) -

    A new Democratic effort to whip up indignation about the Bush administration's handling of Hurricane Katrina also tried to raise money for Democratic candidates.

    Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat and the head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued an appeal Thursday urging people to sign an online petition to fire the Federal Emergency Management Agency's director over his handling of the Katrina response.

    After an inquiry from the Associated Press, the DSCC quickly pulled down the page and said they would give the Red Cross any money raised by the anti-FEMA petition.

    When recipients clicked on a link to the petition, the top center of the screen - above the call to "Fire the FEMA director" - had asked for a donation to the DSCC.

    They could have waited a month or two for the survivors to get through their initial recovery before they went after the money.

    At least they waited a couple of days ...

    They took the ad down very fast after they were caught.

    I think they may have realized what you are saying is true, EG.
