‘Congressman Grimm’s Re-election Funded By Chinese Prostitution Money?’

It looks like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will probably win the award for the most creative press release title this week.

“Foreign Chinese prostitution money is allegedly behind the groups funding Congressman Michael Grimm’s (NY-11) Republican Majority,” a statement sent out by the organization began.

The press release, sent out earlier this afternoon, proceeded to a fairly generic attack that has nothing specifically to do with Mr. Grimm: Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is investing a lot of money into Republican efforts, Mr. Grimm is a Republican and Mr. Adelson allegedly approved of prostitution at his casinos in the Macau province of China.

The Politicker undoubtedly received the statement about the Staten Island congressman because we are based in New York City. Our colleagues around the country are likely enjoying similar Chinese prostitution proclamations about other GOP incumbents occupying districts targeted by the DCCC this year.

“It’s past time for Congressman Grimm to reject the support of these groups funded by foreign money from a Chinese prostitution strategy,” Jesse Ferguson, a spokesperson for the group, declared.

And there you go.
