Found a disturbing little factoid while trolling the Internet this evening.
I came across a Politico piece about Bernie Sanders’ campaign spending reports. Surprise, surprise: he spends a lot of money for those big hairy rallies, as well as the usual stuff of big-time campaigns — staff, consultants, polling, and…
Prepare yourself. Here comes the shocker.
One area where Sanders wasn’t very spendthrift was catering. His February campaign bill was only about $49,000 on catering, including about $620 on Chick-fil-A, $1,140 on Subway and $1088 on Panera Bread.
Wait wait wait. Did they just say… Chick-fil-A?
The antigay, archconservative Chick-fil-A?
The Chick-fil-A that has donated millions to organizations that conduct “conversion therapy” to allegedly “pray away the gay”?
The Chick-fil-A that tried to put Vermont’s own Bo Muller-Moore out of business on a trumped-up copyright infringement case?
Well, there isn’t another one.
Somebody got a little careless on a takeout run. Or they just couldn’t control their hankerin’ for those sweet, deep-fried forbidden fruits.
Six hundred thirty-two dollars. Why, that’s equivalent to about 25 of Bernie’s small individual donations. Wonder how those unlucky folks would feel about their money going into Chick-fil-A’s pockets?
