Failed Connecticut Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Linda McMahon has some very angry ex-staffers. Seems McMahon. the pro wrestling magnate, has not paid her campaign workers. Let’s just say hilarity did not ensue when one affected staff member took his plight to the local media:
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. The workers say, this was the last thing they were expecting after spending hours in the cold, working hard for their candidate on election day.
Well, Twaine Don Gomes, Evette Brown and the rest: this is what happens when you work for Republicans. Credit cards cancelled in the middle of the night, before you’ve checked out of your hotel or made your way home. Bounced checks. It’s all about the Benjamins, as in, the currency, not actual people named Benjamin of course. This is fiscal conservatism at play. Screw the people. And hey, here’s a condom. Which is more than some people received.
