Cheese for votes!

Much more interesting and newsworthy than the lame Nadagate ‘scandal’!

In Philadelphia they’re calling it “The Cheese Caper.” A Deputy City Commissioner asked the District Attorney’s office to investigate who passed out flyers on primary election day — May 17 — promising free cheese to voters for particular candidates. The flyers are topped by a handwritten scrawl, “Come Out + Vote,” adding below, “For Who Ever.” In type, they say “Free Cheese.” The flyers list two candidates, both Democrats, running in an area dominated by the 300-plus-unit Hill Creek housing project. “This guy comes to the polls, votes, and asks us for his free cheese,” says Eileen Kleindienst, a Republican judge of elections. Geraldine Hacker, the Republican official who sent Kleindienst’s complaint to the DA, thought the food might be from a government nutrition program.

I guess they were giving this away to compliment the free whine their fellow Dems in DC give out on an hourly basis.
