Hooters founder gives to Mack

15

February

Connie Mack, who once worked as a special events coordiantor for Hooters, is getting help from his former employer. Campaign finance reports posted today show Mack got $2,000 in the last quarter from Ed Droste, a founder of Hooters.

Who cares, right? Mack's GOP U.S. Senate primary rival George LeMieux has made several cracks at Mack's resume, including a snarky memo (based on this newspaper column) that read: Issue No. 1: Work experience.

Problem: Before trading on the name of your father (a U.S. senator) to begin your current career as a full-time servant of the people in 2001, the most meaningful employment you had was as a “special events coordinator” for a bunch of Hooters restaurants. Boiled down to its essence: You were the go-to guy for folks who wanted to have scantily clad waitresses appear at their events.

Solution: You will be effective in a Democratic-controlled Senate, because you already know what it’s like being surrounded by a bunch of boobs.
