Firefighters Outraged At Rudy Giuliani $9.11 Fundraiser - 09/28/07

Republican Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani is coming under fire from firefighters for the theme of a fundraiser in Palo Alto, California. Kellia Ramares has more:

The 9-dollars eleven cents party in Palo Alto is the only one of a series of national house party fundraising events that links donations for the former New York Citys mayor to the World Trade Center Attacks. Deputy Battalion Chief Jim Riches lost his son Jimmy in the North Tower. Riches is outraged by the fundraiser theme:

: I think its disgusting. All he says is 9-11, 9-11, 9-11, when he runs for President. He is running for President on the body of my son.

Both the party host and the Giuliani spokesperson have attributed the idea to young volunteers acting independently of the campaign.

1. As they ought to be. The pandering and fear mongering is pathetic.
And he tries to pass it off on "some young volunteers". What crap.

2. What a boneheaded stunt.
First the phonecall(s) and now this.

Maybe he's getting Marketing advice from MoveOn.
