Un-classy campaigns

23 Nov

There’s a story circulating of the Romney campaign cutting off worker credit cards within minutes of losing the presidential election.

We have another one:

Linda Marie McMahon is married to Vince McMahon, the guy behind WWE’s pro wrestling.

The family has lots of money.

She’s also a Republican who was run and lost twice for the US Senate in Connecticut – spending more than $100 million of her own money.

Her campaign was either cheap, vindictive or inept.

Recently, several of McMahon’s part-time campaign workers complained about not being paid after the election.

Her campaign then sent checks to those workers, but they bounced.

Oops, just an innocent mishap, says the campaign.

“Checks have been mailed to campaign workers. Replacement checks were issued for those who did not want to wait for the mail,” said the campaign spokeswoman.
“The original checks were then voided once replacement checks were issued.”

Fair enough.
If true.

One guy had complained to a local TV station.

He did finally get a check, but he says, the campaign told him they were mad he went public, so he got a little something extra in his envelope.

The check came with a condom in it, along with a note he “was screwed”.

Yes, that check bounced as well.
