That didn't take long

PA-10: Sherwood Nixes Event On 9/11; Blames "Aggressive" Aide

As we reported below, Dem candidate Chris Carney's campaign slammed GOP Rep. Don Sherwood today in an interview with Election Central for sending out an invite for a fundraiser set to take place on 9/11. Now a rep for Sherwood has gotten back to us -- he acknowledged the event had been planned and emailed a statement saying that that the event is now off. "The fundraiser scheduled for next Monday was postponed," Sherwood adviser Jake O'Donnell emailed Election Central. "The Congressman has an aggressive fundraiser who okayed it originally. The event will be rescheduled for a future date."

As with most Republican politicians when something goes wrong it's not their fault. In this case it was an "Aggressive Aide." I have it from a very unreliable source that the Congressman was unavailable for comment because he was finishing his summer reading list of the Kama Sutra and the complete works of the Marquis de Sade.

A big thank you to everyone who linked to my previous post. There are too many to list but I'm very grateful.
