A Karl Rove look-alike drew a crowd on 24th St. last week.
A Karl Rove look-alike mingled among a group of admirers calling themselves Billionaires for Bush on W. 24th St. last Wednesday evening, where the real Rove was attending a Bush fundraiser inside Eugene nightclub.
Seven hundred people paid $250 each to attend the event, at which Rove, the presidents chief political advisor, was the main speaker.
Chanting Reelect Rove! the Billionaires for Bush actually a politcal street theater group acted a bit miffed at being put in the same protest pen with another group, 9/11 Environmental Action and the Sierra Club, which are working together to call attention to what they call the Bush administrations cover-up of health hazards in New York City after 9/11.
Karl Rove, hes been amazing for us, said one of the billionaires, wearing a top hat and tux. According to Pam Perd, 30, their public relations director, the group meets at a Nolita loft.
Why did they tell us it was safe? and Clean up the 9/11 dust read signs held by members of 9/11 Environmental Action and the Sierra Club.
Jo Polett, 52, a Duane St. resident, charged that the government didnt test or clean affected apartments soon enough after the World Trade Centers destruction and put out the message prematurely that Downtown was safe.
It was the Bush administration that sacrificed the health of the public to get Wall St. up and running and satisfy the real estate industry, she said. They had the test results and didnt let anyone know.
