Ellison uses Palin visit to raise money

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., isn’t the only one hoping to raise some campaign cash when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin visits Minneapolis this week.

Palin is hosting a fundraiser for Bachmann, but Rep Keith Ellison, D-Minn., wants a piece of the action too.

Ellison’s campaign sent out an e-mail fundraising appeal today noting that the GOP fundraiser is in his district:

With tickets selling for as much as $10,000, they are positioned to generate massive financial resources to spread their lies and misinformation about our work to expand prosperity for America’s working families.

In the wake of our health care victory, Rep. Bachmann has falsely claimed that “all Americans will be forced to have to pay for federal funding of abortions”. Worse still, former Gov. Palin recently posted a map on her Facebook page featuring crosshairs over the Congressional Districts of Representatives who voted in favor of health care reform.

I need your help to send a strong message to Bachmann and Palin that their scare tactics are not welcome in my District. Can you help me reach 100 donors by making a contribution of $5 or more?

    The lies and misinformation are being spread by the leftists. I will be making another donation to Bachmann and also Palin, to help oust the marxists in congress.

    “The Truth” is anti-American. Palin and Bachmann are anti-American. The Republican Party is anti-American.

    “…our work to expand prosperity for America’s working families.” HA ha. Keith must be taking comedy lessons from Sen. Smalley.
