Friday Oct 19 Extortion

Primo: So now they're after Scott for money.

Me: Who are?

Primo: The Polka Dots. The party.

Me: But he won the primary and he doesn't have an opponent. Why would they want money from him?

Primo: They're working him really hard and they want money.

Me: I don't get it.

Primo: If you don't support the party, then you don't get the committee appointments you want.

Me: Wait a second. They didn't give money to Scott's campaign. And they sure aren't doing a darn thing for yours. But they'll expect cash if you win?

Primo: Yes.

Me: You've got to be kidding me.

Primo: Nope.

Me: No way. No way are they getting cash from us. No way. This job only pays $49,000 a year and they want you to give a few thousand back to them?

Primo: I'm not happy about this. The [Polka Dot state senate honcho] was so happy to have me running. He was so happy to have candidates in all these districts. But he and the party have done nothing for us. A few conference calls. Big deal.

Me: You know what? You don't need them. If you can get elected this time without them, then you for sure could get elected in the next election. Screw them. Jerks.
