Sen. Lincoln regrets ...

... to inform Goldman Sachs that she won't be a guest at the Wall Street plunderers' fund-raising reception for her after all.


Halter campaign piles on:


"Earlier this week we learned that Blanche Lincoln had accepted thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs, a Wall Street firm whose risky behavior cost thousands of Arkansans their jobs and their homes by plunging our economy into the deepest recession in over 30-years," remarked Halter campaign manager Carol Butler.  "Now we have learned that she failed to tell folks that she had a fundraiser planned with Goldman Sachs.  Being untruthful includes withholding the complete truth -- and that's what Blanche Lincoln has done by failing to disclose her planned fundraiser with reporters who questioned her earlier this week."
Continued Butler, “This is a disturbing development that highlights the power of special interest money in Washington. I hope Senator Lincoln will give to charity all of the money she has received from Goldman Sachs, a company she is supposed to regulate. Bill Halter is proud that his campaign is funded by the contributions of over 50,000 individuals. He is focused on improving the quality of life for middle class Arkansas families not Washington special interests.”
