Judge Roberts and Hurricane Katrina Linked by MoveOn.org

MoveOn.org will also air an ad on Monday that will use Hurricane Katrina footage to try and divert the confirmation of Judge Roberts?. The aim of the ad is to say that minorities will suffer, just like they are in the aftermath of the hurricane, if Roberts is confirmed.

Desperation at work here, keep digging boys and girls, eventually you will find the hell you are looking for in everything.

Ben Brandzel, the advocacy directort said "The connection is obvious, the images after Hurricane Katrina show we still live in a society where significant racial inequities exist. We believe John Roberts' record on civil rights ... is clearly not the direction our country needs to head now."

What the hell does this have to do with the Hurricane?
USA Today is the source for this information, so when MoveOn.org tries to deny this, go to the source.

UPDATE:
the group's executive director said "we regret any misunderstanding that may have arisen because of anything that our staff member might have told USA TODAY's reporter."
"We have no plans, and have never had plans, to produce such an ad," Eli Pariser added.
