It’s Like Watching A Train Wreck

The Republican National Committee, hit by a grass-roots donors’ rebellion over President Bush’s immigration policy, has fired all 65 of its telephone solicitors, Ralph Z. Hallow will report Friday in The Washington Times.

Faced with an estimated 40 percent fall-off in small-donor contributions [bold mine-DL] and aging phone-bank equipment that the RNC said would cost too much to update, Anne Hathaway, the committee’s chief of staff, summoned the solicitations staff last week and told them they were out of work, effective immediately, the fired staffers told The Times. ~The Washington Times [1]

Maybe to add insult to injury, the RNC can have its phone solicitors outsourced to Bangalore or some place.

Good call Roach. Or maybe they can beg Ron Popeil to do an infomercial for them, as Joe Francis probably won’t be available.
