Gillespie charges Dems with 'abuse of power' October 10, 2010
Republican strategist Ed Gillespie on Sunday described the Democratic attack on Republican spending - led by the White House - as an "abuse of power" and an "attempt to silence political opponents."
"This is the kind of abuse of power, in a lot of ways, and the kind of attacks that most Americans are rejecting and it one of the reasons they are in such trouble in this election," Gillespie said on CBS's "Face the Nation," referring to mounting calls by Democrats for the government to investigate whether foreign money is funding American campaigns.
CBS Host Bob Schieffer asked Gillespie, who has assisted two major groups, American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS, why the donations shouldn't be disclosed.
"That is a debate for Congress to have," Gillespie said. "This kind of intimidation to silence political opponents, Bob, you wonder why people may not want to be disclosed?"
But wouldn't it be a good idea to know who is funding campaigns, Schieffer asked.
"If everyone plays by the same rules, I’m for everyone playing by the same rules," Gillespie said.
