Simon sez, "I managed to track down a spokesman for ActBlue, the online fundraising tool for Democratic politicians, and found out that within two hours after Joe Wilson yelled out 'You lie' to the president, his opponent Rob Miller raised $25,000 from people who linked to his page on Twitter and blogs."

The numbers are still going up.

Update: and UP! More than $69,000 now.

Joe Wilson's opponent raises $41,000 on ActBlue within hours of Obama's speech (Thanks, Simon!)
