Apparently $5,000 a ticket isn’t an ‘Elitist’ Event

I used think who could possibly be so idiotic to run a political consulting/marketing business while working as the Deputy SOS. Oh that’s right THIS GUY.

His insane stupidity continues with this post;

It might be just me.. but does that invitation come off as a bit “elitist?”

While at first glance a bunch of rich Democratic (and some Republican) women getting together for cheese and wine may look a little uppity, but I don’t think anyone can outdo NOEM’s presidential fundraiser at $5,000 a ticket. But hey, she isn’t an elitist because she shops at HyVee;

I would contrast that with the fact that every once in a while I run into Kristi or her husband at HyVee in Brookings.  Of course, HyVee is very much “non-elitist,”

I know several women listed on this invitation and I run into them all over Sioux Falls all of the time. As for HyVee, I consider it the most elitist grocery store in town, I like to slum it at Aldi’s.

I’m also wondering when Kristi is going to pay back the good taxpayers of Sioux Falls $29,000 for providing the President security for a NON-PUBLIC event. While I detest Trump, I still would have liked to see him at a public event. Darn, I didn’t have the $5,000. I guess I’m not ‘Elitist’ enough. LOL.

Pat Powers is the biggest stain on the Republican Party. He does what he is paid to do. You can tell his “elitist” blog post was entirely his idea because it holds as much water as a strainer. The guy couldn’t come up with a logical argument if someone wrote it on his forehead. His best blog posts are obviously topics put forth by real campaign managers who know what they are doing. He runs the biggest echo chamber for people with the lowest IQ and they lap it up like dogs.

With a war chest like Noem has, WHY is she running a retread of a commercial she used in her LAST campaign!!?

“And, Booker, it’s trash day.”

The other funny thing is Billie lives in Burke SD which has one small family owned grocery store. Shopping at a local family business is better then at one which takes money out of the State.

I also think he is put off by the idea of powerful women. The rumors of his behavior in offices he has worked in has not faded away.

Noem’s event was $500 a ticket. It was $5,000 a ticket if you wanted a picture with the President.

Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton have all used their brand/position to raise large dollar amounts for their respective political parties. Elitism happens on both sides of the aisle.

So Matt, which event is elitist? The free one for Sutton, or the $500 entry fee one for Noem? Glad to see you also agree with the rest of us that Pitty Pat Power’s argument doesn’t hold up.

I don’t get it. Is it because they think he can win that causes these pro-choice women (for the most part) to over look Billie’s anti-choice positions? If so, then this is an elitist group looking out for their own interests I am afraid, with all due respect.

“When I contacted them for comment, Campaign Manager Suzanne Jones Pranger sent this by email:

‘Senator Sutton is pro-life. His voting record demonstrates that. And any claim otherwise is untrue.’”

Pat powers is nothing more than a hack and a partisan.

Is there “a Knudson” or “a Kirby” involved ?
Pretty ballsy to be having a gathering of the family members of “Sioux Falls crony capitalists who masquerade as proponents of lassie faire government” without them.
