Dems have spent $85 million on registering new voters
Now hold on, I always thought the BigEvilCorporation guys were Republicans. Check this out (from www.PublicIntegrity.org):
Newsmax: So far, the pro-Kerry 527s [non-profit committees that can raise unlimited donations from individuals, corporations and labor unions, registered under Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code] have spent $33 million on TV ads bashing Bush.
But the same 527s, backed by Bush-hating billionaires like George Soros, have spent more than triple that amount - some $85 million -- on registering new (read Democratic) voters. These voter registration drives are below the radar screen, but may prove decisive for the Democrats on Election Day.
Rosenthal doesn't lie. The Republicans -- already on track to be outspent by the Democrats by 2 to 1 -- have not mounted any comparative effort.
There is no hard data on how effective the grassroots voter efforts have been so far, but NewsMax hears that the 527s are pouring millions into building get-out-the-vote operations in two states: Florida and Ohio.
What's up in this country anyway?
