The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which raises money for Democratic candidates, didn't mince words in an e-mail to supporters about TD Ameritrade co-founder Joe Ricketts' briefly considered plan to run ads againt President Obama featuring Jeremiah Wright. The subject of their message: "Race-baiting."
"It’s disgusting, vile and a few other words I can’t print," the e-mail from DSCC executive director Guy Cecil reads. I’m itching to fight back, hard. Republicans have to learn that coded racism is out of bounds. Stand with us to show they can’t get away with it. Tell the Republicans to stop – and take a stand against despicable race-baiting."
The e-mail asks supporters to sign onto an online petition reading "I demand Republicans stop their despicable race-baiting campaign."
