Shocker: Rep. Joe Wilson Raises $700,000

Democrats crowed about how much money they had raised after Rep. Joe Wilson yelled, "You lie" during President Obama's health care speech to a joint session of Congress. It appears the outburst has been kind to Wilson's fund raising effort too.

In the wake of the controversy Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) sparked by shouting “You lie!” during President Barack Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, a Republican source said the Congressman had raised about $700,000 by Friday afternoon.

Update: The Washington Post is reporting $750,000.
