A Rudy Giuliani supporter has managed to create a 9/11 theme for a fundraising party that even the campaign doesn't like. For tomorrow's official campaign event of grassroots house parties across the country, Hoover Institution fellow Abraham Sofaer of Palo Alto, California, is asking for a suggested donation of $9.11.

"These are two volunteers who acted independently of and without the knowledge of the campaign," said Giuliani spokeswoman Maria Comella. "Their decision to ask individuals for that amount was an unfortunate choice."

Close, but no cigar, Rudy. You may be trying to "distance" yourself, but did you ask them to stop or change the amount? Imagine the outrage from Giuliani's camp if the Senator from NY did a similar fundraiser. Chris Dodd's campaign sent a statement asking Giuliani not to exploit 9/11 for fundraising and PERRspectives has some ideas for other Guiliani fundraising events.

In more Giuliani exploitive machinations, WaPo asks if Giuliani shouldn't fork over the higher ad rate that MoveOn agreed to pay for his anti-MoveOn/Hillary ad.
