Now they're even doing stealth fundraisers

From today's Philadelphia Inquirer:

Cheney photo-op for Weldon

Vice President Cheney turned out for a quiet fund-raising event on Friday in Washington to help U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon (R., Pa.).

Weldon, who will face a November challenge from Democrat Joe Sestak, probably got a nice chunk of change from the luncheon at the C2 Group offices on Constitution Avenue. His campaign wouldn't say how many attended, but the suggested donation was $1,000 for lunch - or $2,100 if you wanted your picture taken with the veep.

It was the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that made the event known. It charged that Weldon would never have held the event at home in the Philadelphia suburbs - not with President Bush's approval ratings sinking.

I guess the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee thought we might not notice how supportive Curt Weldon has been of the bankrupt policies of the incompetent administration of George W. Bush and Dick "eagle eye" Cheney?

Kind of like they think we might ignore Weldon's ties to Jack Abramoff?

Kind of like we might forget the coziness (or was it dual role) of Weldon's campaign staff with lobbyists?

Come to think of it, that is a lot to keep track of...
