Reno`s Campaign Looking "Rosie"

Saturday, December 15, 2001

While there was little question regarding former Attorney General Janet Reno`s (D) anti-gun views, the Florida gubernatorial candidate appears to have recruited Hollywood`s most shrill anti-gun voice to assist with her campaign to unseat pro-gun Governor Jeb Bush (R). The AP reports that Rosie O`Donnell has agreed to raise money for Reno by hosting an event on December 30. A site for the event has yet to be determined, as Rosie`s mansion on Miami Beach`s Star Island will be in use at the time. Rosie is well known among the pro-gun community for verbally ambushing actor Tom Selleck for being a supporter of NRA—a tirade that helped her to win E! Entertainment Television Networks` 1999 Tacky Taste Award as "the tackiest show-biz personality."
