From the "You Can't Make This Shit Up" files...

"Staffers for Linda McMahon's (R) failed U.S. Senate campaign in Connecticut tell WTNH-TV they were not paid after Election Day. One who complained publicly said he was later handed a check but also got a little something extra in his envelope. Said the campaign worker: 'Basically he handed me a check with a condom in it, told me I was screwed. That's the rudest gesture you can ever do to a person, it's like spitting in a person's face.' His check also bounced."

Wow. Just wow.

50. Welcome to DU, Please proceed!

Glad you're here! LOVE your screen name!

This is indeed somewhat unclear. Hard to tell if it was metaphoric or actual. Neither would surprise me. Just proves how urgently we need to prevent people like this from gaining a foothold in ANY power position. She's failed at both the gubernatorial AND the Senate level. Wonder what's next? At least megabucks meg whitman seems to have gone away after flushing away more than a hundred million of her own dollars on a waste of time. She hasn't been back to try another way in the way this Connecticut clown-ette has.

and the rudeness of it was comparable to being spit in the face.

This is according to other articles previously posted on the story.

after losing on election night? Were those staffers eventually paid for their service. As far as McMahon is concerned, her actions end any chance she has in politics. Her future opponent has a great talking point on her character.

While I detest what this creature did, it's in keeping with the way she ran her corporation. There was no respect shown to those workers, and knowing the way Teahadists disrespect the 47% and working people...

Yet they still signed up.

Be sure to check with your state's Dept of Revenue and the IRS. She probably did not forward any taxes withheld from any of your paychecks.
