Sen. Warner’s Office to Collect Pentagon Memorial Fund Contributions at “Pig Roast” on 9/11/10


    Sen. Warner’s office sent me the following statement about his “pig roast”, which at least one person finds offensive.

    For your information, at this year’s Pig Roast we will be collecting voluntary contributions for the Pentagon Memorial Fund, a 501(C)3 established to construct, maintain and offer public education opportunities for the 9/11 monument at the Pentagon. Senator Warner just selected the Fund to be the recipient on Monday, and we are including this information in the next DemoMemo and on the remaining invitations.

    Personally, I have mixed feelings about holding political events on September 11, but I can see both sides of this one. By the way, there are many other events in Virginia that day besides Mark Warner’s “pig roast,” including the Mason District Democratic Committee Crab Feast, the DPVA Central Committee Quarterly Meeting in Fredericksburg, the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival, Hampton Bay Days, the Alexandria Festival of the Arts, the Salem Republican Committee Breakfast, and the RPV “Campaign School”. Perhaps they should all follow Sen. Warner’s lead and collect contributions for the Pentagon Memorial Fund as well?
