Specter Uses Kemp's Death to Raise Funds

Arlen Specter (D-PA) went on the Sunday morning propaganda shows this past week and made an interesting statement.  He said that if it weren't for the Republican party, "Jack Kemp would be alive today."

He's backing up his words.

Specter has set up a website that will save many millions of lives.  It's called "Specterforthecure". He called this "a giant leap in turning research into cures."

Before you go there to make a donation, however, you should be aware of one thing. The money donated to the website doesn't go to cancer research. Not a penny of it. The website is a campaign fund raising website for Specter. 

You could be forgiven if you thought otherwise.

The question is, should Specter be forgiven for misleading the public and diverting funds that many people think will go to cancer research into his personal campaign fund? Instead of saving lives, it appears that Specter may be costing lives. But then again, this sort of thing is typical for Democrats ... even recent converts.

I'd say its pretty typical of any politician, not just democrats. The GOP uses things for personal gain all the time. Have you seen their newest campaign videos? They use 9/11 images to promote themselves.

James,
The Republicans should use 9/11 as the DemocRats sure as hell do not care about it.
And Specter is a classless clown.

They are still manipulating things for their own political gain. My point is that both sides are guilty of the same things, just in different ways.
