House Dems fundraiser: please don’t show up!

by Dara Kam | May 18th, 2009

Leave your party togs at home and forget about the cheap wine and finger foods.

A few House Democrats have a different party idea to get contributions than a run-of-the-mill fundraiser: do nothing.

They’re calling the fundraiser a “non-event.”

Reps. Ron Saunders of Key West, Leonard Bembry of Greenville and Debbie Boyd of Newberry sent out a “non-event re-election fundraiser” announcement seeking contributions to their campaigns.

No date, no time, no place. Just make checks payable to one of the campaigns and call it a day.

    Well why not, the tacit “quid pro quo” is the same with or without the party. Since the contributors are buying favorable treatement and money from the govt. till with their contributions, why do they need a couple of appetisers.
