Donks Buy Votes in Philly - Where's the Outrage?
If the GOP ran this caper, it would be on the front page of every MSM paper. A businessweek.com article describes free cheese to those who vote for the Democrat candidates.
In type, they say "Free Cheese." The flyers list two candidates, both
Democrats, running in an area dominated by the 300-plus-unit Hill Creek housing
project. "This guy comes to the polls, votes, and asks us for his free cheese,"
says Eileen Kleindienst, a Republican judge of elections. Geraldine Hacker, the
Republican official who sent Kleindienst's complaint to the DA, thought the food
might be from a government nutrition program.
These things went on for years and years ranging from cash to half pints. But government cheese. What better way to buy votes? No expense to the party or the candidates. I wonder if this will make any network news programs.
Just a thought.
