Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich stopped in Coeur d’Alene Thursday night for a town hall meeting. Before taking the time to meet with some of his supporters Gingrich sat down at a $1,000 per plate private function in North Idaho. Ahi-tuna, tiger prawn martini's, a full bar and an oyster dish were all on the menu. The function is serving nine different hors dourves, and no entres. Roughly thirty republicans will fill the lavish Coeur d’Alene home to meet Mr. Gingrich for about an hour and a half/Cole Heath, KREM. More here.
Question: If you had an extra $1000 now and didn't intend to spend it on a ticket to talk to Newt Gingrich, what would you do with it?
