DCCC accuses NRCC of 'forgery'

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is not amused with a Republican fundraising letter released yesterday that purported to be from Nancy Pelosi.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) sent out a satirical letter yesterday signed by Pelosi, in which the fictional Speaker of the House told Americans to stop worrying about jobs.

"Many of you have been asking, 'Where are the jobs?' But what you fail to realize is no one needs a job when the federal government takes care of you," the letter read.

The DCCC responded today, accusing the NRCC of "forgery," calling the email "despicable" and "full of lies, distortions, and even an electronic forgery of Speaker Pelosi's signature."

The response also points out that the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which is in town this weekend, will feature a Pelosi pinata.

"They're inciting mob violence against a pinata of Speaker Pelosi at this week's right-wing lunatic fringe fest. And now this," wrote DCCC Exective Director Jon Vogel.

Of course, Vogel asked supporters to "stand up for Speaker Pelosi" with a donation.
