Republican National Committee hires India-based Telemarketers?

As Juscuz notes "In what can only be a test of voter loyalty in the face of an economy suffering from massive job loss the RNC has hired a firm in India to do their fundraising calls." Juscuz points out the irony of President Bush running around the country calling for job creation and his RNC simultaneously hiring a telemarketing firm in India to call Americans and ask them to contribute to the President's campaign. If this is true, the RNC decision-maker has some explaining to do.

I have nothing against India or Indians or international free-flow of services but to have citizens of another country hired to do fundraising for our political parties is inappropriate in the extreme. How callous can the RNC be?
