something smells fishy...

The Washington Post reports Bush hosted a party for his top fundraisers...

The event was open to supporters who had raised at least $50,000 by June 30 toward a commitment of either $100,000, which would make them members of the donor group known as the Pioneers, or $200,000, giving them this year's new distinction of Ranger.

Campaign officials said 350 people, including fundraisers and spouses, were to attend. The officials would not say how many were invited, and would not release a guest list.

Transparency is key in campaign fundraising. Which is why I like Yeah, it is definitely a liberal-biased organization, but at least it gives us the facts.

A Grateful Wall Street Is Bullish on Bush
Only lawyers and law firms have given more to President Bush than the securities and investment industry – which already has donated nearly $2 million in "hard money" contributions. Twelve of the top 20 companies contributing to the campaign are from the finance sector, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Leading the way is Merrill Lynch, whose employees and their immediate families donated $240,675 as of June 30 – a figure that exceeds the amount given by any single company to Bush during the entire 2000 campaign.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Bush pushing through those tax cuts...
