Last week, Paul Ryan and his campaign forced their way into the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society soup kitchen for a photo-op. Ryan picked up a clean pot and started washing it to prove what a great guy he is. He got caught.
Ryan’s pathetic attempt to appear charitable in order to score votes has backfired—for the charity. The organization that runs the facility told Huffington Post that donors have been pulling their money out of the charity. Huffpost reports: Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, confirmed that donors have begun an exodus in protest over Ryan’s embarrassment. The monetary losses have been big. “It appears to be a substantial amount,” Antal said. “You can rest assured there has been a substantial backlash.” He added “I can’t say how much [in] donations we lost. Donations are a private matter with our organization.”
