Documentation of GOP event with Swift Vet smearers
This weekend a flyer a 'PRO USA Rally' by the Swift Boat Vets for Truth was found at Alachua Co Republican & Bush/Cheney Campaign Headquarters. The event they were promoting took place this weekend at Gainesville's Community Plaza.
The Community Plaza is owned by the City of Gainesville and any application to use this venue is public record. This afternoon I received copies of the Use Agreement for this rally.
There are four separate agreements for using the Plaza on August 21, 2004 from 2:00 to 10:00 PM and on August 22, 2004 from 12:00 to 8:00 PM. Four groups made the agreements, one each for 4 different but consecutive time slots.
The groups are:
1. Alachua County Republican Exec Comm
2. Swift Boat Vets
3. Vietnam Vets Against Kerry
4. Veterans for Bush
All four agreements are signed by Dineen Wolfersheim. Four separate checks were written by two different individuals from their personal accounts.

Those both look like the same handwriting too. Bush is soooo busted!!
Another Lying GOPer Covering for Smirk
Dineen Wolfersheim, secretary of the Alachua County Republican Executive Committee, said she helped organized the event as a private citizen and blamed an unidentified "overzealous Republican" for placing the flier in the party's headquarters. She said once local Republican party officials learned of the promotion's placement, they removed it.
In addition, Wolfersheim said she pulled the permit needed for the event and helped others organize and raise money.
REC Chairman Travis Horn said he was aware Wolfersheim was participating in the event, but said she was not doing so as a representative of the party.
"The Swift Boat Vets for Truth, Vietnam Veterans against Kerry, Veterans for Bush have asked us to participate and join them in a political rally at the downtown plaza," according to the e-mail, which is signed Dineen Wolfersheim, Events Coordinator, ACREC Secretary.
