A Giuliani Supporter's Bad Idea

It would be best if this idea were quashed:

A supporter of Rudy Giuliani's is throwing a party that aims to raise $9.11 per person for the Republican's presidential campaign.

Abraham Sofaer is having a fundraiser at his Palo Alto, Calif., home on Wednesday, when Giuliani backers across the country are participating in the campaign's national house party night.

But Sofaer said he had nothing to do with the "$9.11 for Rudy" theme.

"There are some young people who came up with it," Sofaer said when reached by telephone Monday evening. He referred other questions to Giuliani's campaign.

It is in bad taste and it can easily be turned against Giuliani as an example of his campaign using 9-11 for his own benefit. His staff needs to deep six this idea, and quickly.
