Heckle Generates Dollars On Both Sides

Liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org is jumping on the Rob Miller fundraising bandwagon, 36 hours after Miller’s 2010 opponent, Rep. Joe Wilson, yelled “You lie!” at President Obama.

Miller, a Democrat working on a rematch, has raised more than $750,000 since then, and MoveOn.org sent an e-mail to supporters Friday asking them to help put the challenger campaign over the $1 million mark.

A spokesman for Wilson says he’s had a post-ouburst fundraising boost as well, that has topped $700,000.
