Dems Send Protester In Chicken-Suit To Lowden Fundraiser In Washington

The Democrats really aren’t going to let Sue Lowden forget the “Chickens For Checkups” stuff.

Earlier today, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee sent some volunteers to demonstrate outside a Lowden fundraiser in Washington, D.C. One volunteer was dressed up in a chicken-suit, in recognition of Lowden’s promotion of the barter system as a means of lowering health care costs, and her discussion of how her grandparents’ generation would bring a chicken to the doctor for payment. Another was dressed up as a doctor, with a sign saying “Don’t Take Lobbyist $$ Barter.”The DSCC sent us a photo, with this comment: “Sue Lowden’s livestock-bartering policy proposals are no more popular in Washington than they are in Nevada.”
