Joe On The Dole
This is from a Moonie rag, so buyer beware:
The White House funneled millions of dollars through major Republican Party contributors to Sen. Joseph Lieberman's primary campaign in a failed effort to ensure the support of the former Democrat for the Bush administration.
A senior GOP source said the money was part of Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove's strategy to maintain a Republican majority in the Senate in November. The source said Mr. Rove, together with Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, directed leading pro-Bush contributors to donate millions of dollars to Mr. Lieberman's campaign for re-election in Connecticut in an attempt that he would be [wtf? -- RA] a "Republican-leaning" senator.
"Joe [Lieberman] took the money but said he would not play ball," the source said. "That doesn't mean that this was a wasted investment."
Seems to me the subliterate Moonie rag could name some of the donors if the story is true. And the rag doesn't quote either Chinless Ken or Triple-Chins Karl with either a confirmation or denial. On the other hand, Joe Fuckyourself undoubtedly got (and continues to get) a lot of right-wing cash; the only question is whether it arrived at the White House's command.
