India's Business Standard newspaper reported [back in January (?)] on the RNC's 'smart' use of campaign funds - using low-paid sweatshop call centre workers in Noida, India to call up Americans and pump them for campaign funds to support the Bush re-election campaign.
The Republicans deny it, including this remarkable assertion that, rather than the RNC, the company "could be referring to some other Republican Party entity or conservative organization."
Oh yeah, one of those other "Republican Parties." That Indian magazine must not be fair and balanced. Certainly no American rag would publish such an unsubstantiated tissue of ... whatever.
The rebuttal also says
"A check of Federal Election Commission disclosure reports through July 22 by WorldNetDaily confirm neither HCL Technologies nor eServe received disbursements from the RNC."
Gee, if their call center is off-shore, who knows where the bank account is, or whose name it's under....
Another great thing about the web is that we can finally have some kind of long-term memory for the media. This stuff can resurface over and over, under god-knows-what circumstances.
