Las Vegas, NV – He’s bok
pay! Today – in his first official appearance of the 2016 election cycle – the Famous NV Dems Chicken called out GOP Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina for stiffing her employees. Fiorina has been criticized for trying to avoid paying former employees from her failed 2010 California Senate race. Sound familiar? It should.
Because the person Fiorina announced today as her Nevada Campaign Chair – businesswoman Sue Lowden – faced similar criticism in Lowden’s 2014 campaign for Lieutenant Governor. Lowden ran for Lieutenant Governor while still owing hundreds of thousands of dollars to staff and venders from her failed 2010 Senate race in Nevada.
But the similarities don’t stop there. As CEO of HP, Fiorina laid off thousands of workers before taking a $40 million golden parachute. Lowden? She awarded her husband a $200,000 bonus while laying off 25% of her employees and eliminating their 401-K match.
And considering the fact Fiorina wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, if she’s elected President, Lowden might have a new ally in her scheme to go back to a time when chickens could be bartered for healthcare.
