Plaid Pantry rescinds support of Gordon Smith

Plaid Pantry CEO Chris Girard says he will no longer support Sen. Gordon Smith, financially or personally, due to the senator’s support of a cigarette tax increase. Girard signaled the end of his and Smith’s relationship through an official Dear John letter, lamenting thus:

“We never expected you to ‘like’ tobacco and alcohol … but we also did not expect you to abandon your commitment to small businesses, selling legal products to customers who do enjoy using these products.”

Smith is also no longer privy to complimentary hot dogs and issues of “Jugs,” and his picture has been placed on every Plaid Pantry’s “wall of shame,” which lists shoplifters, 86’d patrons and tax-and-spend politicians. Not really …. but probably.

    He is Mormon. They do that kind of thing.

  3. Ossie says:

    What!?! Sen. Gordo does not “personally use or endorse the use of alcohol and tobacco”? That’s preposterous!
