The Democratic Party couldn’t wait one night before it began fundraising on Tom DeLay’s indictment. Tom McMahon, executive director of the DNC, just sent a fundraising email to supporters:
People ask what the difference is between the two parties, and this indictment gives one clear answer.
Republicans are committed to pushing the legal limits to collect checks from special interests who want to use government for their own narrow purposes. Democrats are committed to funding our party with contributions from ordinary Americans so that when we take power, the government will represent the people.
You can make your personal commitment to changing the culture of corruption by getting your Democracy Bond — a monthly commitment to contribute to the Democratic Party.
