In a sort of power lunch for the not-so-powerful, President Barack Obama broke bread Friday with four winners of a contest for people who give to his campaign in small amounts.
The suggested donation to enter the drawing: $3.

“In a sort of power lunch for the not-so-powerful”
...powerful enough to vote in that sorry sack of crow excrement that’s in the WH right now.
Isn’t this an illegal lottery?
What?? No Union Leader?? No hard working illegal Mexican??
Who woulda thunk they would all be government employees? What are the odds of that in a lottery?
Yeh...A postal worker and a firefighter, too.
Lunch with Il Douche usually costs about $35k. Are they going to have to pay taxes on the value like people who catch baseballs in MLB stadiums do?
Second prize was two lunches....
That assumes lunch with Barry has some intrinsic value. Raffling a useless item is probably legal.
Why doesn’t the sorry POS have them eat lunch at the White House and make it a real treat for them?
He could have it catered and pay for it with some of those 3 dollar donations.
Eating with a skinny Muslim at Ben’s Chili Bowl is no treat.
...and for dessert: Pepto Bismol followed by a shower in Lysol......
I agree. It would make him look good too.
