Forrester, Martinez So Happy Together!

In case you missed it (BTW, this is the subject line of ever Forrester Mass email), Forrester had Martinez over for fundraising.

This makes total sense, Forrester has enlisted the help of a well known Republican to garner votes. Not the first time. This would be innocuous on the surface but recently, Mel Martinez has been up to not so good.
As fiscal hawks surrendered, would-be government contractors were meeting in the Hart Senate Office Building to figure out how to get a share of the money. A "Katrina Reconstruction Summit," hosted by Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) and sponsored by Halliburton, among others, brought some 200 lobbyists, corporate representatives and government staffers to a room overlooking the Capitol for a five-hour conference that included time for a "networking break" and advice on "opportunities for private sector involvement."

(hat tip to billmon)

So Mista Forresta, How many more times will you associate yourself with tax dollar looters? Wan't it enough to have Dick Cheney and Karl Rove over for fundraising? Aren't there so many more examples of good Republicans out there that Forrester can marshall to his aid? Here he is constantly boasting about change and not being like the other guy, this and that, and he enlists another Halliburton associated politcian to garner support?

One that sponsored the lobbyist orgy for Katrina Rebuilding funds?
