Democrats Slam GOP's Fake "From" Foolery

BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, February 18 2010

Ruh roh. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee isn't too pleased with the NRCC's fakery involving Nancy Pelosi's "from" address. The DCCC just sent out a fundraising email to its list slamming the tactic:

Check out the despicable e-mail below that Republicans actually sent out yesterday full of lies, distortions, and even an electronic forgery of Speaker Pelosi's signature.

These childish and desperate tactics are nothing new for Republicans. They've hung Democratic Congressmen in effigy. They're inciting mob violence against a pinata of Speaker Pelosi at this week's right-wing lunatic fringe fest. And now this.

This is how they react to watching the House pass one bill after another to dismantle the failed Bush agenda and move America forward. These tactics need the most forceful response we can muster.

The email comes from "Jon Vogel, DCCC Executive Director." If that's his real name.
