Anger at Giuliani 9/11 Fundraiser

Candidate Rudy Giuliani wants to be able to mention 9-11 as often and in as many different ways as possible, even when he has a fundraiser. Rumor has that the former mayor has even renamed his dog "9-11." He obviously feels he has cornered the market on terrorism:
The International Association of Fire Fighters accuses him of exploiting the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks.

[...]The Giuliani campaign says it did not plan the event, which is due to take place on Wednesday evening in California at the home of a supporter.

Nevertheless, the firefighters association said the stated theme of the fundraiser - "$9.11 for Rudy" was in poor taste.

"It is nothing short of disrespectful to the legacy of the thousands of civilians and 343 brave firefighters who died at Ground Zero," said Harold Schaitberger, IAFF president.

Democratic presidential candidate Chris Dodd described the fundraiser's theme as "unconscionable, shameless and sickening."
