Here's a heartwarming tale of how the GOP is struggling to attract small donors this election cycle. The article comes from the Moonie Times, so please consume with the usual grain of salt, but it's such pleasant reading that I figured y'all would enjoy it anyway. The enclosed piece is actually a teaser for a more complete story that will appear in tomorrow's edition of the Washington Times.
"The Republican National Committee, hit by a grass-roots donors' rebellion over President Bush's immigration policy, has fired all 65 of its telephone solicitors, Ralph Z. Hallow will report Friday in The Washington Times. Faced with an estimated 40 percent fall-off in small-donor contributions and aging phone-bank equipment that the RNC said would cost too much to update, Anne Hathaway, the committee's chief of staff, summoned the solicitations staff last week and told them they were out of work, effective immediately, the fired staffers told The Times."
