|USA||DEMOCRATS URGED TO CANCEL FUND RAISER AT PLAYBOY MANSION|
The head of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights wants the Democrats to cancel a fund raiser planned at Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.|
William Donohue, league president, said the venue and the date for the event is objectionable because it falls on a holy day.
He announced plans at the weekend 6 to step up a campaign against the fund raiser scheduled for next Tuesday, 15 August, the feast of the Assumption. The league ran an advertisement the next day in Roll Call, a Washington newspaper, asking Vice President Al Gore to cancel the event.
