Just As I Thought

At least they’re not calling from the White House

Remember all the flap about fundraising in the Clinton White House – those links to foreign countries?
Well, the Republicans are calling to raise funds from India.

The US Republican Party now has a band of young and enthusiastic fund-raisers in Noida and Gurgaon.

HCL eServe, the business process outsourcing arm of the Shiv Nadar-promoted HCL Technologies, has bagged a project to undertake a fund-raising campaign for the US Republican Party over the telephone.

This is the first time such a project has been handed out to a company outside the US. The market research and public relations companies engaged by the party usually undertake such projects.

HCL eServe has put in place a team of 75 people to work on the project out of its call centres in Noida and Gurgaon. According to industry sources, the number of seats could be ramped up depending on the success of the campaign. These operators are required to call up people in the US seeking their support for President George W Bush and a donation for the Republican cause.

The Republican contract comes on the heels of a successful anti-abortion campaign run by HCL eServe for a US politician.

No wonder there has been such a huge number of jobs lost under the Republican government. They’re sending them all to India. What f**king hypocrites these politicians are.
