Let’s talk about Linda McMahon, Republican Senate candidate in Connecticut who spent $100 million dollars to lose twice.
Remember how Mitt Romney cancelled staffers’ credit cards so they couldn’t even get home on election night? McMahon took that a few merry skips better.
After the last checks to her staffers bounced, one of them complained to the media. The campaign said, “Yeah, yeah, all a big mistake, checks are in the mail and you know …”
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.
“Basically he handed me a check with a condom in it, told me I was screwed,” Gomes said. “That’s the rudest gesture you can ever do to a person, it’s like spitting in a person’s face.”
His check bounced as well.
They told him to go screw himself and then they did it for him.
But, it’s kinda understandable….
In fairness and in defense of Linda McMahon: It’s possible that she needed the money because she’s only worth a mere $500 million and owns a $40 million mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut, a $20 million vacation home and a $12 million penthouse in Manhattan. So, understandably, McMahon had to screw her part time staff over while humiliating them, in order to survive.
And these people are stunned, just stunned, that we did not give them the keys to the US Treasury.
Thanks to MB and Brian for the heads up.
