    Sen KKK Byrd knows how to take care of his own, even though it means to condone the smearing of Gen Petraeus



    BUCKS FOR BYRD

    Sen. Robert Byrd, president pro tempore of the Senate who joined the most liberal senators in voting against censure of MoveOn.org, received $824,000 from the left-wing organization for his 2006 re-election campaign. Only 25 senators refused to condemn MoveOn.org for its newspaper ad belittling Gen. David Petraeus, the commander in Iraq.

    Federal Election Commission figures show Sen. Hillary Clinton, who also voted against the resolution, received only $5,700 from MoveOn.org. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, second-ranking to Byrd among the organization's recipients with $389,000, voted for the censure resolution.

    Byrd received his MoveOn.org money in a torrent of 2005 Internet giving after delivering a fiery attack on President Bush's Iraq war policy. It was thought then, incorrectly, that Republicans would seriously challenge Byrd's election to a ninth Senate term from West Virginia.
