A Fundraiser for Mindy

There's a fundraiser for Mindy Montford next week... here are the deets:

Dear fellow friends: You are cordially invited to join Chuck Mains and Joe Garcia for a fundraising event for the election of
Mindy Montford Candidate for Travis County District Attorney
Tuesday, January 29th, 2008 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Ringside at Sullivan's 300 Colorado Street
Cash Bar
Thank you for your consideration.

My problems with this...

  • Sullivan;s. I mean come on! The place is a joke and the food compares well only to Ryan's Steakhouse Buffet. That place jumped the shark YEARS ago. I evaluate potential dates by their restaurant choices... if they pick Sullivan's, I know they're all flash and no substance. Or stamina.
  • Cash Bar?!?!! What. The. Fuck. A tab at Sullivan's isn't that bad... maybe $200-300. How much are y'all planning to raise?
  • Chuck Mains and Joe Garcia. Who are they? Glad you asked... Joe Garcia works as a lobbyist for Dr. Hospital Bed Leininger and is a partner of Mike Toomey (39%'s former CoS) and chief lobbyist for Texans for Lawsuit Reform (the group that gave us HIGH insurance rates and the inability to collect from bad doctors). He's also close to Bill Messer, who is a BFF of Republican House Speaker Tom Craddick.

    Chuck Mains is a member of Senator Eltife's (R - Tyler) staff.

  • You know, I wasn't so much for this 'the Republicans are trying to sneak one in one us' paranoia going around, but now I'm all about it. Which is why I'm pointing you to this link from Vince.

    Finally... am I the only one who has a problem with a DA named 'Mindy'? It's like a sheriff named 'Pickles'. Mindy, thrilled you got away from the monomaniacal McCracken. However, you're too close to some people who need to STAY THE FUCK OUT OF THIS RACE. Oh, and if anyone goes to the fundraiser, please let me know. I'll meet you for drinks later to debrief. And I'LL BUY.
