Ellison calls on donors after Fox loops his criticism of Bachmann, conservatives

The campaign of Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is using Fox News’ criticism of a recent comment he made about Rep. Michele Bachmann to appeal for donations for the upcoming 2012 election.

Ellison told student activists last week that conservatives, including Michele Bachmann, want to keep women barefoot and pregnant. Fox News picked up the clip. By Wednesday, Ellison’s campaign had posted an appeal for funds on his campaign site, saying the “right-wing noise machine” was targeting Ellison.

One of the Fox News appearances of the clip occurred Tuesday on “The Five,” a panel show that replaced Glenn Beck’s show this week.

Greg Gutfeld, host of a 3 a.m. show on Fox, referred to Ellison’s religion.

“It’s kind of rich coming from Ellison, who is a Muslim,” Gutfeld said. “There are plenty of Muslim countries out there that if Michele Bachmann was doing what she was doing would be killed.”

(Gutfeld also questioned why Ellison used such “florid” language to say that the goal of conservatives is to shrink government down to the size where they can “drown it in the bathtub,” which is actually a quote by Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist).

Eric Bolling, a Fox Business host, said he felt “bad for [Bachmann] having to share Minnesota with this [Ellison].”

The financial appeal from the Ellison campaign was up soon after the clips aired on FOX.

“In response to Keith’s strong support of women’s rights, the right-wing media has unleashed another vitriolic attack,” the statement declared. “As a supporter and friend to Keith, you know that his record of fighting for equal rights for women speaks for itself. But will you speak for him?”

The post on Ellison’s site boasted three separate linked appeals for donations.

Ellison’s 2010 opponent, Republican Joel Demos, raised a little more than $95,000 in that election cycle, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics, while Ellison raised almost $1.4 million. Ellison won the four-way 2010 race with 67 percent of the vote.
