Dean renews call for bush to return tainted cash
Last week, it was revealed that troubled Bush fundraiser Thomas Noe used his influence to attend a strategy session with Bush-Cheney '04 officials and also that the fundraiser who helped organize a lunch for the President appeared before a grand jury investigating the event. At least one attendee was later reimbursed by Noe so that they could attend the lunch, a clear violation of campaign finance laws.
"This is further proof of the Republican Party's culture of corruption," said Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. "Noe raised vast sums for Bush, sometimes using questionable methods and was granted access to the President's top campaign aides. Republicans in Ohio and Washington have made this pay-to-play atmosphere par for the course. I again call on President Bush to return all money raised by Noe for his campaigns."
