Dirty Election Politics Have Begun

The Democrat's dirty election politics have already begun, according to a Newsmax article. I never realized one of our own government parties could stoop so low. Is it unheard of to win on your own merit? What a disgusting, low-life party we have in the Democrats. Does this "Accountability Project" also work to hold Democrats accountable?

Here's the story printed in Newsmax:

Democrats Seeking ‘Macaca’ Moments

The Democratic National Committee has launched a website to recruit and display embarrassing video and audio of Republican candidates taken by ordinary citizens at public events. The DNC is seeking to record “macaca” moments, according to Politico a reference to an utterance by Sen. George Allen during his unsuccessful 2006 re-election campaign.

On Aug. 11, 2006, at a campaign stop in Breaks, Va., Allen twice used the word “macaca” in reference to S.R. Sidath, a 20-year-old of Indian ancestry who was a volunteer in the campaign of Allen’s Democratic opponent Jim Webb. The word is said to be a derogatory term for a North African. Allen’s mother grew up in Tunisia.

The flap resulting from the remark surely cost Allen votes in what turned out to be an extremely close race, and torpedoed Allen’s chances for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. Now the Democrats are evidently hoping to record similar slip-ups that campaigns and journalists can use in ads and news coverage, Politico reports.

The site was launched Tuesday with a mass e-mail from DNC Research Director Shauna Daly, with the subject line “The Accountability Project: Hold Republicans accountable.”

The e-mail notes that the “macaca” incident was “just one moment. Who knows that else is being said when the cameras aren’t running? We don’t but we sure wish we did. “That’s where the new ‘Accountability Project’ comes in. It’s a platform for citizens to document Republican candidates and their public statements at local events, as well as their campaign tactics. The Accountability Project allows you to submit videos, recordings and other items for publication online.”

The site also states: “If you hear of any upcoming public events for Republican candidates in your area, you can let everyone know, so that other concerned citizens can get out there. “The project will enable folks to keep track of Republican candidates running for every office, up and down the ballot.”

What dispicable tactics. No wonder we want to VOTE OUT ALL INCUMBENTS.
