Let Bill Kristol pay the tab

Remember how high-minded those Never Trumpers were when they ran Evan McMullin as a third-party candidate?

They were more smug than the Marin County Prius Owners Club.



Turns out, McMullin -- aka Egg McMuffin -- not only was a stiff as a candidate, but he is stiffing those vendors who were dumb enough not to demand cash upfront from him.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported he owes vendors nearly $670,000 but has only $10,000 in cash to pay them.

“From what I know, they do not have any capability or plans to pay all the vendors they still owe money,” Tanner Leatham, the owner of Gathering Inc., a Utah based consulting firm, told the paper.

Considering the loathsome Rick Wilson -- who bills himself as a "Republican strategist" on TV -- backed the guy, I wonder why McMullin needed to consult the Gathering. I mean, Wilson knows all and sees all. Just go with his advice.

To be sure, vendors and Donald Trump have been going to court over the years to resolve contract disputes.

But in this case, McMullin's campaign is dead broke.

“Responding to a unique moment, we ran a campaign on a short time frame and without traditional party support,” Joel Searby told The Tribune in a statement.

“We’re proud of what we did, running a lean operation and relying on mainly small individual donors, but ultimately fell short of fundraising goals. We are working hard to do what we can within the law to retire as much debt as possible.”

Meanwhile, McMullin is considering a run at Congress next year. Hey, Harold Stassen made a pretty good living running for president until he was well in his 80s.




The original, "Trump the Press" chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.
Then came "Trump the Establishment," covering the election, which again the media missed.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

    4. Ho hum. Another day, more winning. New VA law allowing patients to go "out of network," billed as a first step (mighty big one), NYT gets another beat down, and I counted coup to the tune of 16K in the IRA. Haters gotta hate, Anonymous, and Winners gotta win. Selah.

  2. Egg McMuffin? I believe we are giving that Jackalope a compliment calling him the name of McDonald's best product. Hopefully the vendors will sue him until he walks with a limp.

  5. He can take a page from The Donald's business history and declare bankruptcy, stiffing his gullible creditors, then resurrect his campaign for the presidency in 2020.

  6. "... running a lean operation..."

    I guess that would be 670K in Hillary Bucks.

    I would probably put a lien on his line item travel funds from McCain's account.
