Contraception Debate Bringing Dollars to Democrats

February 28, 2012
Democrats are capitalizing on the recent debate over whether religiously affiliated employers have to provide access to contraception as part of their health insurance plans, our colleague Shane Goldmacher reports.

Even after a White House compromise on the issue, "the mini-scandal has brought the political arm of the party money by the buckets-full," Goldmacher writes (for subscribers):

On Tuesday, Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said that since the issue of contraception burst onto the political scene, online fundraising for House Democrats has "shattered every record." In a period of several days, online donors emptied $650,000 from their wallets for the party, Israel said.

The DCCC has sent a steady flow of e-mail cash solicitations to donors, including three missives last week that appeared to come from Pelosi with the subject lines of "Appalling," "They're censoring us," and "no women?" The party's online petition reports more than 450,000 signatures from opponents of the "Republican War on Women."
