TX-28: Michael Schiavo's TerriPAC Sends Contribution to Ciro

Posted by DavidNYC

In the wake of Congress's obscene intrusion into his family's personal affairs, Michael Schiavo decided to take action. He created TerriPAC (named after his late wife) to help make sure that the kind of politicians who saw fit to play politics with his wife's life get defeated - and to help those politicians who respect personal and medical privacy.

Henry Cuellar, you won't be surprised to learn, falls into the former category. When Terry Schiavo's last days should have been spent in quiet dignity, Cuellar instead sided with Bill Frist in treating her like a political football. Michael Schiavo has therefore decided to support Ciro Rodriguez, and he's directed TerriPAC to make a contribution to him.

I should add that even Frist has since acknowledged he was wrong to support the federal government's intrusion on a personal family matter. I haven't heard a single apologetic word from Cuellar.

Still, though, too little too late from Frist: the GOP has a great track record of only apologizing when they get caught (like the current "whoops, sorry I voted for the Patriot Act" rhetoric now that public opinion is turning the other way).

Of course. Frist's mea culpa is worthless - except as a political lever against guys like Cuellar. It puts them in an akward spot - "Even Bill Frist acknowledged he was wrong. Won't you?"
