GOP: Smut-peddlers at fundraisers OK, as long as they're Republicans

I found this on AOL's web site:

Porn Star to Attend President's Dinner
GOP Fundraising Chief Has No Qualms About Taking Money


WASHINGTON (June 9) - The annual President's Dinner, a Republican Party fundraising event featuring President Bush, could get an extra dash of spice this year with porn actress and former California gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey planning to attend.


Hmmm....a porn star and gubernatorial candidate in California's miscarriage of justice at a Republican fundraiser...wonder what that could be about...

Carl Forti, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, which is co-hosting the dinner, had no qualms about Carey and her boss, adult film executive Mark Kulkis, attending.

"Their money was donated to the NRCC. The NRCC's job is to elect Republicans. We'll take that money and use it to elect more Republicans," Forti said.


So essentially, Forti is saying "We'll take anyone, even porn stars, if it means absolute power for God's Own Party! MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Now let's turn the clock back about five years...

LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Top Democratic officials removed California Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez as a speaker at next week's national convention after she refused to cancel a political fund-raiser to be held at the Playboy Mansion.

A spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee said late Thursday night the action was taken after Sanchez was told that holding the fund-raiser there of Hispanic Unity USA -- her political action committee -- was not "reflective of our party's values" and she decided to move forward with her plans anyway.


If you'll recall, when Representative Sanchez's plans first came to light, all the blowhards on the right, from the Oxycontin Junkie on down, piled on with craploads of manufactured outrage that just wouldn't stop, even after Sanchez's removal from the speakers' list. Now, there's nary a peep from these same holier-than-thou types when it's a Republican fundraiser...
