The president of Americans Coming Together, the group which hired the felons to canvas, writes:
“Meanwhile, just today, Republican Party Chairman Ed Gillespie, The Drudge Report and Fox News have been quick to stir up attention to an Associated Press story about some of our ACT canvassers. It’s the same old tactic—it’s disgusting and so predictable.
I’m writing to respond to these gross misrepresentations of our work, our supporters and, most importantly, our canvassers. And I urge you to stand with me today. “
Um, they really don’t respond to the AP story at all — or even link to it. They’re just trying to raise money off it and blame Drudge for linking to a story by that known rightwing organ, The Associated Press.
