Former Staffer Complains That Egg McMuffin Hasn't Paid Many Staffers and Never Plans to Do So

Eternal values. Unwavering principles. Uncompromising character.

Fly-by-night deadbeat. Slick-skulled grifter. Shiftless light-fingered nosferatu.

Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin owes his former campaign staff members tens of thousands of dollars and most believe he has no intention of ever paying them, a former campaign worker tells The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Right before McMullin’s failed bid for president in 2016 as the conservative alternative to President Donald Trump, the campaign was inundated with debt. The disastrous fiscal situation was a combination of frivolous spending by McMullin and his campaign manager Joel Searby, according to the former staffer.

McMullin received news weeks before Election Day 2016 about how dire the campaign's finances were, and he had "no remorse" and said "I have qualms about this thing ending badly in debt," the former staffer claimed. McMullin's cavalier attitude towards the campaign's spending struck many as a surprise, particularly because he billed himself as a fiscal conservative, he added.

The staffer also claims the campaign never paid him somewhere between 12-15 thousand dollars on top of a few thousand dollars in reimbursements. While he has since recovered, he expressed concern about former staffers with "families and children."

...


"To me, Evan didn't really seem to understand or care that there were families that this debt really hurt," the former staffer said. "He doesn't want to make good on any of this."

Both McMullin and his running mate Mindy Finn have tried raising funds in Silicon Valley for future political endeavors with little success. Currently, the two lead Stand Up Republic, an advocacy group focused on criticizing the president and pressuring House Republicans to take action against what they see as Trump’s policy of "[conceding] to Vladimir Putin."

Their work with Stand Up Republic, which is funded primarily by the Democracy Fund, is their primary source of income, the former staffer said.

"There’s no way he could have any other source of income, he never landed a contributorship" with either MSNBC or CNN, he said.

#WhoFundsEggMcMuffin?

Daniel Greenfield writes this about "The Democracy Fund:"

The Democracy Fund is a creature of Persian billionaire Pierre Omidyar. He's also the guy behind The Intercept. While McMullin lectures us on national security, his sugar daddy funds a site most closely associated with terrorist supporters like Glenn Greenwald.

That's too harsh about Gleen, but it is interesting that the allegedly super-hard-core national security hawk is funded nigh-exclusively by a guy who is simultaneously pushing a leftwing, peace-at-any-costs, more-people-die-in-car-crashes-than-in-terrorist-attacks site.

It's almost like the mission is just to weaken America and make it less of an influence, not more of one, in the wider world.

Conservatives should totally get behind Egg McMuffin. Ehhh... it's not for you. It's more of a Shelbyville kind of idea.


McMullin... McMullin... McMullin... McMullin...

Oh by the way: What was the name of con artist who foisted this other con artist on us?

Didn't Bill Kristol -- master of the Long Con on strong cons -- have something to do with cooking this grift up?
