The Swifties Financial Backing


by Steve

Here’s some more information on our friends at Swift Boat Veterans for (Un)Truth, and their financial backing. The Center for Responsive Politics gives you a summary today of the top financial backers for this group. You will notice that Houston homebuilder Bob Perry, who has longstanding ties to George W. Bush and is a virtual ATM for the Texas and national GOP is the primary financial sugar daddy for this group. You will also notice that a former assistant to Ken Starr assists them.

But remember, they are nothing but a group of concerned citizens with no involvement with Rove or Bush, who are simply concerned about John Kerry’s fitness to be Commander in Chief, right?
