The upshot is that there were so many tickets left over that Gellatly, personally, called people to GIVE away entire tables and seats... and in one instance at least, a major sponsor of GOP events that clown-boy had refused to comp, told Davey to get stuffed, as did many others. There were, I'm given to understand, something in the area of 50 tickets that he had to eat.
Having heard this from multiple sources since the event, and having known from the get go that this idiocy was going to be a flop, when I get multiple people telling me this, it's hard to ignore.
On May 6 this year, I posted the opinion below. I had no idea that it was as close to being terrible as it actually turned out.
Odd, isn't it? The LDD is over 6 weeks away, and the local GOP has already been forced to discount their massively overpriced Lincoln Day Dinner tickets.
Can't imagine why that might be, or the reaction of those who paid the full price. They can't be happy.
$120 per ticket was an inexcusable price to begin with.
But I guess it ain't $120 now...
Apparently, in many instances, FREE wasn't even a low enough price.
