DSCC calls on Bush to condemn Allenís slurs; cancel Aug. 23 fundraiser

Bush Must Condemn Allenís Slurs Ahead of Fundraiser Next Week

Bush Should Cancel Next Weekís Fundraiser For Allen: Why Would He Want To Reward Allenís Despicable Behavior?

With George W. Bush scheduled to hold a fundraising event next week for the bully known as George Allen, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) issued the following the statement demanding that the President condemn Allenís comments or cancel the fundraiser:

ďBy not condemning what George Allen said, the President is giving tacit approval to comments that have no place in the public discourse. Itís not good enough for the President to say Allen apologized. Allenís remarks were despicable and Bush has an obligation to say so,Ē DSCC spokesman Phil Singer said. ďIf the President refuses to condemn Allenís comments, he should at the very least cancel his fundraiser for him next week or else it will look like he is rewarding Allenís behavior.Ē

On Wednesday, Bush will headline a private fundraiser for Allenís re-election campaign at the Fairfax County home of former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie. (AP, 8/9/06)

A new Rasmussen poll out today shows that after leading by double digits, Allenís lead has dropped to just five points (47-42). A month ago, Allen led by eleven points. Yesterday, a SurveyUSA poll showed Allenís approval rating falling and revealed that two-thirds of Virginians believe Allenís comments were inappropriate.
