Ad hammers Schaffer over Abramoff ties, sweatshop ‘investigation’

A campaign finance watchdog group unleashed a brutal attack on Republican Senate candidate Bob Schaffer on Tuesday, charging the former congressman with defending sweatshop operators at the behest of lobbyist Jack Abramoff in an ad set to air on Denver television stations. Campaign Money Watch also called on Schaffer to provide evidence for repeated claims he caused a sweatshop to shut down after his junket to the U.S. protectorate in the South Pacific.

Site sews up Schaffer connections to Abramoff

As reported by the Rocky Mountain News today, ProgressNow Action unveiled a new website within minutes of Jack Abramoff’s sentencing that shows clear links between the disgraced lobbyist and Colorado Senate candidate Bob Schaffer. The site, SchafferScandals.com, has an inviting front page with neat sound effects, like the sound of gunshots for Shaffer’s war profiteering and sewing machines (operated by small children, I’m sure) for information about the Marianas.
