Mayor TenHaken’s PAC hosting a Fundraiser for his Mayoral Campaign

I guess I can’t even ask the question, but I will, since I am baffled, ‘What is the legality of this?’

I am not saying this violates any campaign finance laws, I’m saying I don’t know. But it certainly raises an eyebrow, you know, like when toddlers each give you a $1,000.

So Poops’ Next Generation PAC is holding a fundraiser for Paul’s Mayoral Campaign. Why wouldn’t Paul’s mayoral campaign just hold a fundraiser for itself? The only inkling I have is that Paul is also trying to raise money for the PAC so he can hand it over to council candidates since he will virtually have NO big name challengers as Mayor (sorry David 🙂

  1. Raise money under the guise of mayoral candidate, 2. Give that money to anti-populist authoritarian city council candidates, 3. Rinse and repeat your last 4 years, 4. Scott is speculating from his rear, once again.

I will NOT be attending, but I’m sure I will have plenty of foot soldier reports of the event.

There’s no Zombie Walk this year. So, this PAC fundraiser will have to do. I have also heard there’ll be a parody fundraiser that same night called: “Poops-&-Peeing”. But I am going to miss them both, because, I plan to go camping with my family that weekend. #Shucks

Having your own PAC sponsor a fundraiser for your own candidacy is very Trumpian. It’s like 45 holding a fundraiser for himself at the Trump Hotel, or 45 billing the Secret Service when they lease space at Trump Tower to protect 45.

( and Woodstock adds: “What about his daughter?”…. “Does she have an agent?”…. “She should bill the city for her FB Live performances, then she could turn around and make a $1000 contribution to her Dad’s campaign”… )

I’ve been working on a brochure for the mayor’s campaign:

– Bunker Ramp: It would make a great mural.

– Sorry, but my family and I are going camping this
weekend.

– Districts, but no precincts.

– State Theatre: Big chairs make it look full.

– Three tornadoes in one night: Trucker hat time.

– Here to help, but don’t forget about the “Red Line”.

– Wear a mask. Don’t wear a mask, if you don’t want to.

– I didn’t sign up for this.

– Smithfield is back! The river is still dirty.

– ALEC helps me to help Haiti.

– Convenient voter boxes for some: Iowa law applies
here.

– Sioux Steel: “TIFS & More”.

– Amazon is Here! (So much for the Wayfair/Main Street
argument.)

– FB Live is the way to go: My daughter calls me “Poops”.

– Covid money: It’s like an inheritance from a dead
uncle.

– Chick-fil-A is Here!

– Plaid jacket and white sole shoes: Else, no need to
apply.

– Got Potholes? Don’t call me. Call my subordinates.

– Got Money? Contribute to my campaign! Or my PAC!
What’s the difference?

– I am great! I am Thune 2.0!

– It’s cruise control government with an Ironman touch.

What do you guys all think?
