NRCC Shakedown

From WSJ’s Washington Wire:

Illinois caterer Steve McMonagh complains he was duped by the National Republican Congressional Committee into donating $100. He says he thought it would finance a newspaper ad after a telemarketer told him he had been nominated for Bush’s Business Advisory Council. “The word Republican was not mentioned,” he insists. An NRCC spokesman said the partisan nature of such solicitations is mentioned “right off the bat.”

Anybody who gives us a donation today will be nominated for our super special hunky dory NRCC is Stupid Council, and will also become Businessperson of the Millenium and master of all he or she surveys.
