The Times-Tribune - News - 09/22/2005 - THIS MORNING: "“scumbag!” Fundraiser featuring Cheney postponed

SHAVERTOWN — U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum’s Luzerne County fundraiser with Vice President Dick Cheney has been postponed.

The appearance, set for Friday, was postponed so the vice president could concentrate on helping deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, said John Brabender, spokesman for Mr. Santorum’s re-election campaign. The event will likely take place in mid-October, he said.

The vice president was scheduled to appear at the Shavertown home of Ron and Rhea Simms for the $1,000-a-person fundraiser. Mr. Santorum is the presumptive Republican nominee. The leading Democratic contender is state Treasurer Robert P. Casey Jr. of Scranton."
