Debates between Mark Udall and Bob “I miss Jack” Schaffer are close to planned: hopefully there will be at least eight over the summer, scheduled around Udall’s Congressional work.
According to the NY Times, Schaffer’s ties to Jack Abramoff are but a parasailing memory away. To wit:
"In Colorado, former House member Bob Schaffer, the Republican candidate for Senate, has been under scrutiny for his 1999 Congressional trip to the Marianna Islands, a favored client of Mr. Abramoff. It was also a favored cause of former Republican leader Tom DeLay, whose connections to Mr. Abramoff were the original key to his rise. An ad by an independent group showed Mr. Schaffer preparing to go parasailing while traveling on the dime of an interest group tied to Mr. Abramoff. Mr. Schaffer has said he did not even know Mr. Abramoff." (Emphasis added)
Sometimes the fights are hard, and sometimes, they’re just plain right. Remember “Vote for the Udall Closest to You.”
