VIDEO: Linda McMahon campaign worker received check and "you're screwed" condom; then his check bounced.


Campaign worker receives check and condom, check bounces

Linda McMahon campaign worker:

"Basically he handed me a check with a condom in it, told me I was screwed. That's the rudest gesture you can ever do to a person, it's like spitting in a person's face."

Linda must be broke after spending all those millions on her failed campaigns. Yeah, that must be it. That or she's a lower-life than many of us thought she was:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Two days after the election campaign workers came to News 8 claiming, they had not been paid by Linda McMahon's campaign. [...]

Twaine Don Gomes was one of the people who first complained to News 8. He was handed a check, but he says, the campaign told him they were mad that he came to News 8, so he got a little something extra in his envelope.

His little bonus was a "you're screwed" condom. How's that for parting gifts? And to add insult to injury, his check bounced.

At least the condom will help augment the biggest one-year drop in abortions in a decade.

Paul Ryan's "phoniest piece of baloney" photo op could hurt soup kitchen


So this happened:

Paul Ryan barred reporters from his convo with homeless in Ohio, and washed dishes “that did not appear to be dirty”

Charity president on Paul Ryan soup kitchen photo op: “Did not have permission. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken.”

The charity's president, Brian J. Antal, has been a volunteer for five years and isn't about to quit now. But ever since Paul Ryan's fake-dishwashing photo op, he's getting angry calls and threats from "donors" that they'll stop supporting the soup kitchen.

Via the wonderful Connie Schultz (wife of Sen. Sherrod Brown who is running for re-election):

When I talked to Antal on Tuesday afternoon, he said he was starting to worry "a little bit" for the safety of his family. [...]

"They keep accusing me of being partisan," he said. "They say they're donors who will never give again because of what I said." None of them would give a name.

Juanita Sherba, St. Vincent's Saturday coordinator for the dining hall:

"It was the phoniest piece of baloney I've ever been associated with... In hindsight, I would have never let him in the door. ... They couldn't have cared less. The advance man said Paul Ryan wanted to come and talk to our clientele, but he didn't."


"My objection to Paul Ryan's visit has nothing to do with his being a Republican. I'm trying to protect our charity..."

Obama Reaches Out, but Not to Nelson or Lieberman

Roll Call is subscription only, but gives us this interesting nugget to go with their post title:

In the wake of Senate passage of the health care reform bill, President Barack Obama on Thursday called a dozen Senators, including Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), according to a list provided by the White House.

Here's an idea of how to reach out to Traitor Joe: Pull his chair(manships) out from under him.
