P.S.: A Taco For Your Vote? — 5/16/06

“My campaign is offering all Idaho citizens voting in the upcoming Primary Election a certificate for one free taco, upon proof that they voted in the Primary Election. The best proof would be a digital picture of their ballot from within the voting booth taken via a cell telephone digital camera. The free tacos would be distributed via post election voting parties promoted by my campaign in eastern Idaho, western Idaho, and northern Idaho. All candidates whose campaigns were advanced by the Primary Elections would be encouraged to participate in these gatherings. This would give all candidates the opportunity to meet and mingle with the voters who helped them, and all winners of the Primary Election. Why FREE TACOS? Why not! Idaho voters are tired of politics and campaigns as usual. They want something different. Yes, we could offer them a free hamburger, but hamburgers, and yes, even free cheeseburgers, are boring and not sufficiently outrageous.” (For the rest of the offer at the Dan Adamonson for Idaho governor campaign Web site, click here, for KCBI-2 News story, click here.)

DFO: Mebbe a grilled stuft burrito for my vote, but only a taco? C’mon.

Question: What do you think of Adamson’s offer to give you a taco to vote?
