PA Republican Party Disavows the Email It Hopes Voters Will Believe

You'll be pleased to know that the Pennsylvania Republican Party agrees (when confronted) that it has no reason to believe Barack Obama "taught members of Acorn to commit voter fraud." The Party also admits it has no evidence that "known terrorist William Ayers ... thought the terrorists didn’t do enough on 9/11." Forced to make those concessions, the Party blamed and "fired the strategist who helped draft" an email containing those assertions that was "making the rounds among Jewish voters in Pennsylvania this week."

The email also

equated a vote for Senator Barack Obama with the “tragic mistake” of their Jewish ancestors, who “ignored the warning signs in the 1930’s and 1940’s.”

Because of the two factual errors (lies) in the "unauthorized" email, the Party plans to send a correction to the 75,000 recipients of the original. Whether that will happen before or after the election is unclear.
