Flashy GOP House Fundraiser Party Stars LeAnn Rimes, Nets $59 per Critter'
By: Teddy Partridge
Saturday April 16, 2011 4:00 pm

<snip>

Spending a quarter of a million dollars to make a big splash with their first DC fundraiser, freshman California Congressman Jeff Denham and ten other fellow newbies managed to bring in a major haul: each of the eleven newly minted GOP Critters will receive exactly $59.09 in campaign funds for his first re-election campaign.

Rimes and her entourage made out well at the Jan. 4 fundraiser that served as Republican Rep. Jeff Denhams big political debut in Washington. Between assorted fees, flowers, catering and other costs, Denhams special fundraising committee reported spending $212,250 on the Rimes event.

The committee, meanwhile, raised only $212,900 from outside contributors.


Add it all up, and Denhams special committee spent nearly a quarter of a million dollars to net a grand total of $650 in outside contributions.

These are the people many Americans trusted with our countrys fiscal future last election day, and the people Barack Obama thinks he can negotiate with. They are also, of course, the new freshmen Critters pulling the strings on the newly hatched, orange Speaker marionette.

Of course, no GOP event would be complete without a little Nathaniel Hawthorne shaming in the midst:

One conservative commentator asked Denham at a news conference whether it was right for an admitted adulteress like Rimes to entertain at a GOP event.

2. Conservative Economic Principles In Action

When you add in the gasoline used to get to the event and back as well as any new clothes purchased and maybe even tipping a valet I am betting they each lost money on this one.

They should do this more often.

10. I would rather diss whoever thought they were going to make money off of this
If there are any out of pocket expenses not in that number then these people went through a lot of trouble to lose money

3. I've always said that some people work harder trying to make a fast buck
then the effort it takes to earn it honestly.

4. I'm embarrassed to say that this chump is my 'critter
And I can tell you he has aspirations to a position of influence within the puke party.

Looks like this might be a little glitch on his road to the big time.

influence in the Republican Party! :rofl:

My condolences, btw! :cry:

7. Just how mixed up these people are
'One conservative commentator asked Denham at a news conference whether it was right for an admitted adulteress like Rimes to entertain at a GOP event.'

They have a four times married ass boil being the spokesperson for the Regressive Party. A three time married newt thinking about running for president that says he get an erection thinking about how patriotic he is, twice a cheater. These are males

I guess it only matters if you are a woman...........

9. Well, at least some local businesses made some money, so their
employees will be buying necessities, this multiplying the effect through the economy. Double-good. The Republicans screw themselves, but they spread some money into the local economy for ordinary people to make a living.

I like it.

11. There must be some special hell for Republic women who commit adultry.
For the guys, it just leads to higher office.

Go figure.

14. The word "adulteress" gives me the willies.
Sounds like something a woman gets called while being sentenced to stoning because she was raped.

I'll bet that "conservative commentator" is a real piece of work.

15. It's okay to run for President on the Republican ticket if you're a cheater..
but god forbid you sing at a Republican fundraiser.

23. Irrelevant after Citizens United
The Repukes will just get their secret money from secret organizations. It matters not at all what they raise at public events.

25. Finished in the black -- it was a success!
That's how these things count. If the attendees enjoyed it, that's what they'll remember.
