MassGOP Calls On Markey To Cancel ‘Disgusting’ Fundraiser With Eliot Spitzer
TOM KLUDT 2:00 PM EST, TUESDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2013
The Republican Party of Massachusetts on Tuesday called on Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), a Democratic candidate in the state's special U.S. Senate election, to cancel a fundraiser scheduled for next month that will be co-hosted by former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D).
In a statement, Kirsten Hughes, chairman of MassGOP, said that it's "disgusting" that Markey would "rub elbows" with Spitzer, who resigned in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal.
“You are judged by the company you keep and it’s disgusting for Congressman Markey to rub elbows with a man best known for his solicitation of prostitutes,” said Kirsten Hughes, MassGOP Chairman.“Instead of lining his campaign coffers with donations from the disgraced Eliot Spitzer, Markey should immediately cancel the fundraiser and denounce Spitzer’s abhorrent and unacceptable behavior. Anything short of a public condemnation and cancellation would send the wrong message to women everywhere.”
The fundraiser is scheduled to be held March 13 at the Washington, D.C. home of Spitzer's sister, Emily.

9. Sorry for sounding like my grandchildren, but
How come the GOP gets to make morality calls on Dems all of the time? When they do something gross or ignorant or illegal the response is silence. How come? Huh? How come?
