Sanders mentions AZ shooting in fundraising appeal
A fundraising e-mail distributed today by the campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., refers to the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others over the weekend. The letter begins:
“Given the recent tragedy in Arizona, as well as the start of the new Congress, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few words with political friends in Vermont and throughout the country.”
From Shay Totten at Seven Days:
Timing, is everything in politics, and this one breaks new ground in bad timing. The usually political savvy pol may have some explaining to do with this one. His fundraising letter is the talk of Washington this afternoon, and little of it good.
