The AP reports, “President Bush has withdrawn the ambassadorial nomination of a businessman who donated money to a group that undermined Sen. John Kerry’s presidential campaign.” The Senate Foreign Relations Committee was scheduled to vote today on whether or not to approve the nomination of Sam Fox as America’s Ambassador to Belgium. Sens. John Kerry and Chris Dodd led the opposition to the appointment. Fox contributed $50,000 to the “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth,” a group that slanderously attacked Kerry’s service during the Vietnam War.
