Chafee shaking the money tree

December 8, 2011

Enough of Christmas trees and holiday trees and the semantics of the season. Governor Chafee tonight is shaking the political money tree. Chafee is holding a fund-raiser tonight at Wannamoisett Country Club. Suggested contributions: $1,000, $500 and $250. There is a long host committee, including a mix of Democrats and Republicans.

Among the Democrats: Former House Majority Leader George Caruolo and Eva Marie Mancuso, a onetime Democratic candidate for attorney general.

Republicans include former GOP state chairman John Holmes Jr., and Malcolm Farmer III, the last Republican to serve on the Providence City Council.

The host committee also includes such business leaders as Stanley Weiss and Colin Kane.

    Chafee’s should get significantly less money from this fundraiser this time around than he did at a similar one, at the exact same location, before the election. One of the primary “hosts” of this fundraiser is a rich guy that Chafee used to buy municipal equipment from when he was Mayor of Warwick. The rich guy doesn’t even live in RI!

    Sickening. Everything that’s wrong with Republican party… who the heck are they… Chafee-ites, Robtaille-ites, or just ninnies?
