Bush Appoints Swift Boat Donor To Ambassadorship
In news from Washington, President Bush has appointed a controversial Republican fundraiser to become ambassador to Belgium. Bush gave Sam Fox a recess appointment a week after he withdrew Fox's nomination because of opposition from Democrats. During the 2004 campaign Fox donated $50,000 to the Swift Boat Veterans For Truth group that attacked the war service of Senator John Kerry. Democrats have expressed outrage over the appointment and questioned the legality of Bush's move.
