Swift Boat Battle Heats Up

The battle over 527 ads run by a Swift Boat group that supports Bush is heating up. In the last 24 hours, a Bush attorney was found to serve both the Bush campaign and the 527 group who is posting the negative and false ads. Bush did come out yesterday and say that, "he thought that he had done away with 527's when he signed the McCain/Fiengold bill earlier in his term." Bush also fell short of actually condemning the ads that claim Kerry did not serve in Vietnam as he has described and is clearly documented. Today, the attorney for the Bush campaign resigned. Around the same time, former Sen. Max Cleland, from Georgia, flew to Crawford, Texas to deliver a letter to the President. The letter was signed by 9 current Congressional members, asking the President to condemn the Swift Boat ads. Neither the President nor anyone on his staff elected to receive this letter. I am sure this sends a mixed message. He doesn't like the ads and thinks Kerry served admirably, but he won't do anything about it. Read more about it at Yahoo:
