Moore, not satisfied with his $21.8 million haul from the first weekend box office of his anti-Bush home movie, joined a national conference call and webcast on Monday sponsored by MoveOn to promote the film. The group claimed more than 30,000 friends and supporters dialed in.
Moore, according to a spy who joined in on the call, pleaded with his fans to vote for Kerry, and added, “The election is Kerry’s to lose. I’ve never spoken to the man. I’ve never spoken to anybody in his campaign.”
Yet almost immediately after stating that, Moore told his fan base that he had been speaking with Alexandra Kerry, who has been spending months working on media outreach for the Kerry campaign and is considered one of her father’s closest advisers.
As well, Moore spent a great deal of time campaigning for Wesley Clark, some of whose staff have signed on with Kerry and with whom Moore and his associates have kept in touch.
According to a Kerry campaign source, employees of Moore have been attempting to get Kerry to agree to a private screening of Moore’s film, but the candidate had been balking out of fear of being used by Moore for publicity, or that an appearance with Moore would prove embarrassing. Other intermediaries, from Moore’s distributors, have also been in contact with the campaign.
