Anyone who voted for Bachmann at the straw polls was able to enjoy music from Randy Travis, Grammy winning country singer. Bachmann spent lots of money getting him out there and made it so if people wanted to watch the singer perform they had to vote for Bachmann in the straw poll. What a way to buy votes.
“Bachmann spent upwards of $1 million, paid for over 6000 tickets, paid for Grammy Award winning, country musician Randy Travis to show up, and bussed in Randy Travis fans in order to secure 152 more votes than Congressman Ron Paul. Michele Bachmann’s camp handed out flyers, which stated that in order to see the entertainment, you had to vote for her first.”
A Ron Paul video yesterday (wish I could find the link) is what sparked this post.
