Local ties to 'swiftees' ad $$

Philadelphia Daily News

REMEMBER where the whole Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth controversy was at a couple of weeks ago? The Bush White House has always maintained that John Kerry's Vietnam record was honorable, and so reporters and politicians - including Bush supporter John McCain - asked George W. Bush if he would repudiate the Swift Boat ads.

And now it comes out that when President Bush flew to the Philadelphia suburbs to campaign last Thursday, he held his rally at the business of a major donor to the Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth. The Bush campaign said it selected Byers Choice Ltd., a maker of Christmas figurines in Colmar, Pa., as a way of showing its support for small business.
