Via the Daily Caller, Bluestem has learned that failed burrito baron and Minnesota Republican state chair Tony Sutton is re-entering the food service industry in Cannon Falls, an archetypal small town in greater Minnesota.
Earlier this month, our peep into the state pachyderm party's latest FEC filing revealed that the RPM's federal account owes debts and obiligations of $608,147.51. While Tony Sutton has started drawing a salary of $100,000 a year, he's obviously having a hard time making ends meet, so it looks like he's taken a second job.
According to the Caller, tomorrow morning with find him slinging up “A Big Ol’ Hunk of Nothing on Two Thick Slices of Nada” in Cannon Falls. Given that the media already has reservations for a later seating at the President's table, it's hard to say who'll bite on the hash Sutton is serving RNC chairman Reince Priebus.
People is Cannon Falls plan to fill the President's town hall. Star Tribune reports in Cannon Falls residents grab tickets to see Obama:
The small river town of Cannon Falls had to wait 83 years between presidential visits, so it was no surprise that there was pent-up demand for tickets to see the commander-in-chief.
Between 1,300 and 1,500 people -- in a town with a population of 4,000 -- showed up Sunday for a chance to attend Monday's town hall meeting with President Obama.
"I've been doing this for 20 years, [and] I have not seen an event where people were so happy and exhilarated about this opportunity," said Police Chief Jeff McCormick. . . .
Can Sutton's nothing sandwich match that level of enthusiasm?
Doesn't look promising. The rest of the failed burrito baron's menu laid out in the re-written press release the Caller has posted? It looks like heartburn and Sutton's signature "outrage," but perhaps the party boss will experience more customer satisfaction than that he met in the waning days of Baja Sol's doomed franchise.
