    About time the media picked up on this. The Dems shout the loudest for CFR and then immediately circumvent it...

    'Shadow Party' Collects Millions for Dems
    By SHARON THEIMER, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - Political groups trying to help Democrats win back the White House have raised more than $25 million this year despite complaints about their activities from Republicans and campaign watchdogs.

    The Media Fund, which is airing ads opposing President Bush (news - web sites) in several states, raised more than $12 million from January through March and spent roughly $10 million, a new finance report to the Internal Revenue Service (news - web sites) shows.

    America Coming Together, which focuses on get-out-the-vote activities in support of Democrats in competitive states, raised at least $6.5 million during the period. The MoveOn.org Voter Fund, also advertising against Bush and his policies, collected about $7 million and spent more than $9 million in the first quarter.

    None of the groups I saw mentioned are democrat controlled, so there isn't anything they can do.

    What...and the NRA, GOPAC, and the Christian Coalition don't to this same stuff for the Republican Party. Kwitcher bitching! Democratic and liberal supporters have to do this to keep up with the money Republicans raise from oil companies, logging interests, corporate hog farms, etc. etc. etc.

    Kill'em all and let God sort'em out:D
    Just kidding.

    George Bush has more money in his warchest than just about any other President who has ever run for office.

    Enough said.
