Recent polls suggest that Senator Obama's coattails are not particularly helpful to downticket Democrats. More alarming though is news from reliable sources that Obama Democrats and others are teaming up to overtly support candidates running against Clinton Democrats. Sheila Jackson Lee is a case in point. Read on... (below is a copy of an email I received from a friend). Meanwhile, I have made a gift to a friend to enable her mother and her to attend the event. If you cannot attend yourself, please consider helping somebody who can.
Calling all Clinton Dems!
Hillary will be attending a reception for Sheila Jackson
Lee on September 21st in Houston Texas and they need your help! This is
no ordinary fundraiser...
There appears to be an all out effort on to oust representatives
that supported Hillary from their congressional seats. Sheila is one of
Big money players are supporting Sheila's opponent and really
putting the heat on. The "politics of personal destruction" is their
game. The smear campaign is in full swing.
Sheila stood with Hillary though her entire primary run and
received threats, intimidation and namecalling just for supporting her.
This kind of behavior can not be rewarded! Please come to her
defense by attending this Houston fundraiser.
If you can't be there, please consider donating to her campaign.
