Blue America targets Tim Griffin

OIL-STAINED: Tim Griffin
  • OIL-STAINED: Tim Griffin
Blue America, a liberal political group is raising money for ads opposing particularly terrible Republican candidates by asking contributors which they'd like to see their money used against.

One choice? " ... ex- GOP hitman and Karl Rove's special DOJ houseboy, disgraced U.S. Attorney, Tim Griffin. " Blogger Digby explains:

Just make a donation on the page dedicated to the culprit of your choice. If you click on the picture below (not the link, which will take you to a post or site explaining why they are on this page in the first place) you go directly to their Blue America donation page. Because we're progressives and not conservatives, a one dollar donation equals the same single vote as a one hundred dollar donation. Now, one of the great aspects of this is that each one of these exceptionally bad Republicans has an exceptionally good Democrat running for the seat. Believe me, that isn't easy to find. I mean, Republican John Boozman in Arkansas, for example, is just terrible but his Democratic opponent, Blanche Lincoln, is just as bad. We won't be offering any Hobbesian choices like that. In Arkansas, to stick with that state as the example, the woman running against Griffin is state Senate Majority Leader and proven progressive Joyce Elliott.

So, we're happy to announce that all of the money raised through this little contest will be used to help voters understand that there's a difference between the Republican and the Democrat running for the seat that gets the most votes. Who do you think is the worst of the worst?

Links lay out some of the dirty oil money flowing from Texas into the Griffin campaign.

PS — You did read Ernest Dumas' full recitation of the Griffin record, didn't you?
