GOP crashes convo with fortune cookies

Two Republican volunteers handed out fortune cookies outside the Mariott late this afternoon.

When opened, the cookies had anti-Dem messages like, "Dem Spending Binge. Americans Cringe. GOP Wins," and "Julie's record: Lassa taxes."

Republican Party of Wisconsin executive director Mark Jefferson, who did a press availability outside hotel, said the stunt was all in good fun.

"What's a convention without both sides of the story?" Jefferson asked.

"There's lots of excitement on the Republican side," he said. "We want to convey that message as often as possible."

Dem Party spokesman Graeme Zielinski wasn't amused.

"I don't get it," he said.

"(The Republicans) have a lot of cash, so whatever makes them spend it, that's fine," Zielinski said. "As long as someone is getting employment by what they're doing, I'm happy. Hopefully the fortune cookies are made in Wisconsin."
