The Lexicon of Spin II
Lynn Swann complains to the Associated Press that the Rendell camp is scaring away potential contributors to his campaign.
Quote: "His party machinery is out there putting the squeeze on people, saying `don't contribute to Swann's campaign,'" Swann told the AP.
Swann said he has heard of "more than five, less than 20" instances in which potential donors said they "felt pressure" from people connected to Gov. Ed Rendell or simply assumed on their own that contributing to Swann's campaign might hurt their chances of winning a contract or grant."
Translation: "I am having a hell of a time raising money."
