The Senate Rules Say They Do Not Want Your Gifts. Their Emails Request A Kind Sponsorship Of Lunch

As we decide what is actual ethics reform versus what is an attempt to recover from last year’s PR debacle over the subject, the State Senate adopted rules this year limiting their gifts with a few loopholes.  But they still need someone to feed them lunch on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Please feel free to sign up as indicated in the email copied below:

Subject: Majority Chairman Lunches

Good morning all:   I am putting together a lunch sponsorship rotation list for the Chairman lunches.  The Chairman will be meeting every Tuesday and Wednesday at Noon in the Senate Mezzanine starting this week.  If you are interested in sponsoring a lunch, please let me know and I can put you on the list.  Below is a copy of the meeting schedule and the committees represented on each day. Please let me know which day you want to sponsor on when you respond back.  Please feel free to forward to those who may not be on my distribution list.  Thanks!

    PP should sponsor one of the lunches. We’re talking ham & cheese, etc. Maybe a veggie or two…You could feed all those chairman for about $75.00 plus a couple gallons of sweet tea.

    Mt. Molehill. I swear.

        Why would you need to register to be a lobbyist? You wouldn’t be spending $1000. Having My Friend’s Place deliver some sammiches ain’t gonna take 10% of your work day. You wouldn’t even have to show up to the Cap!

        Just ask Debbie Dooley and Kay Godwin. They lobby everyday and don’t register. They sign up and speak to committee meetings, advocate positions–even tell the Members how hard they worked on their election campaigns while testifying and threaten that if they had to register, they might not work as hard next time.

        Piece of cake! (for dessert, please, when you order the lunch)

    Let’s see: Kroger white bread is about $1. Some Kroger-brand peanut butter is about $1.50. Jelly not much more than that. Bag of chips = $2.

    I’m in!
