"$9.11 for Rudy" AP 9/25/07


Giuliani party draws criticism from Dodd

By LIBBY QUAID, Associated Press Writer 57 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - The International Association of Fire Fighters accused Republican Rudy Giuliani of exploiting the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks because a supporter is holding a $9.11-per-person fundraiser for the presidential candidate.

The union — already a vocal critic of Giuliani's — said Tuesday that the fundraiser's "$9.11 for Rudy" theme is an abuse of the image and symbols of the 2001 attacks.

"It is nothing short of disrespectful to the legacy of the thousands of civilians and 343 brave firefighters who died at ground zero," IAFF president Harold Schaitberger said.

The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Chris Dodd called the theme "unconscionable, shameless and sickening." The firefighters' union has endorsed Dodd.

Another Democratic candidate, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, said the event was "overdoing it."

"You know, we shouldn't use a tragedy for politics," Richardson told New Hampshire reporters on a conference call.

A Giuliani spokeswoman said the $9.11 idea was selected without the campaign's knowledge.

"These are two volunteers who acted independently of and without the knowledge of the campaign," Giuliani spokeswoman Maria Comella said. "Their decision to ask individuals for that amount was an unfortunate choice."

Giuliani supporter Abraham Sofaer is slated to hold the fundraiser at his Palo Alto, Calif., home on Wednesday, when Giuliani backers across the country are participating in the campaign's "National House Party Night." Givers at the parties are generally being asked for $25, $50 or $100 and not for $9.11, according to the campaign Web site.

Sofaer said he had nothing to do with the decision to ask for the $9.11.

"There are some young people who came up with it," Sofaer said when reached by telephone Monday evening. He referred other questions to Giuliani's campaign.

"I'm just providing support for him. He's an old friend of mine," Sofaer said.

Sofaer was a State Department adviser under President Reagan and is a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. Federal election data indicates Sofaer has given nearly $50,000 to Republican causes and candidates, including Giuliani, since 1995.

According to the invitation, "$9.11 for Rudy" is an "independent, non-denominational grass-roots campaign to raise $10,000 in small increments to show how many individual, everyday Americans support 'America's Mayor.'"

Giuliani was mayor of New York during the Sept. 11 attacks.

Abraham D. Sofaer

Google this guy. Ignore the deceased Burmese actor who oddly happens to share his name. He was one of the legal voices calling for preemptive war - what was he up to before 9/11? In any event, this guy loves Rudy and he loves 9/11, obviously because it made his dreams for the Middle East come true, at least the invasion part. Another question: Who is tracking Giuliani right now? We should be networking to determine all the stops he is making and send out protesters to humiliate him. This $9.11 for Rudy event has not been canceled yet! WHO LIVES IN THAT PART OF CALIFORNIA?

These people have no shame.

These people have no shame.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Gooliani Associate Micheal Mukasey

Has an interesting past with "terrorists"

"Worse, during the 1995 trial, Judge Mukasey helped bury the significance of Ali A, Mohamed, a shadowy figure who was working at the time for both Osama bin Laden and the FBI.

If Mohamed had been called to the stand and cross-examined in open court, defense lawyers could have ripped open the scandal of how the FBI failed to stop the first Trade Center attack. More important, they could have exposed the depth and breadth of al Qaeda's shocking plan to attack America, six years before 9/11."
