look, they're incompetent.
that's who they are.
well, plus insane.
Yeah, so the WSRP was trafficking in invalid cruise gift certificates. Quite the defense.
Yeah, @2, but I like to keep posts short.
Having had some experience with political fundraising auctions, I have to say, that's pathetic. Normally, your auction items are donated by supporters, often as a bit of publicity for their business. So some local Republican donated a trip on one of his boats - and then either went out of business or otherwise had the boat go out of commission, AFTER someone had paid $700 at the auction to win the cruise. And was not in a position to otherwise honor the donation. That's just lame. You make good on your promises when you donate, or else you don't promise to donate in the first place.
Oh, and I should add, there's another scenario, which, considering these are Washington State Republiclowns we're talking about, seems even more likely - sometimes auction donors, horrified at the low dollar amount their donations were won for, suddenly find themselves unable to honor the donation commitment.
"Whaddya mean, they won my cruise for $700?! That's a $2,000 cruise - why didn't anyone pay full market value for it???"
