Remember the door to door campaign to show support for Obama's budget? The DNC
sent 200 volunteers to Capital Hill with copies of the what theirthey claim as 640,000 "individual pledges." According
to Fox News, copies is indeed the operative word.
The president's e-mail list of 13-million resulted in just 114,000 individual pledges - a response rate of less than 1 percent. Party workers secured another 100,000 signatures by hitting the streets. The DNC arrived at its 642,000 figure by making three photocopies of each petition so that every signer's senators and representative could get one.
DNC spokesperson Natalie Wyeth responded: "This effort was designed to give our supporters the tools to influence their elected officials. Of course we delivered a pledge to each of their members of Congress - 642,000 pledges. That's what we said we were delivering and that's what we did."
