Right-wingers target Carter

A conservative group wants Congress to censure former President Carter, saying he is advancing the interests of Hamas.

The “Move America Forward” campaign is in response to an effort by Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) to censure President Bush for authorizing eavesdropping without warrants. Move America Forward says former presidents are subject to censure.

“If the members of Congress cannot unite behind a resolution that rebukes a former president for repeatedly working to advance the interests of terrorist groups like Hamas and terrorist leaders like Yasser Arafat, then what good is Congress?” the group said in a release.

Carter has argued in favor of continued assistance to the Palestinians through third parties since Hamas’ election to lead the Palestinian Authority in January, and expressed hope that the terrorist group would give up violence.
