DNC: Darn that Delicious Obamacare-Slamming Pizza!


Over at Twitchy, they note DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse is apparently irked at the Papa John’s pizzeria chain for CEO John Schnatter’s public criticism of Obamacare.

Quick, nobody tell him that the Obama campaign spent $1,500 on 20 separate orders for pizzas and other food from Papa John’s during the past election cycle — more than they spent at Einstein Brothers Bagels ($861.96), Little Caesars ($520.63), Pizza Hut ($834.03), Chipotle ($619.16), Starbucks ($260.14), or Whole Foods ($1,088.79).

But the good news for Woodhouse is that Papa John’s was only the second-favorite pizza of the Obama campaign; the campaign spent $2,710.10 at Domino’s.

All of these figures come from the itemized expenditures reported by the Obama campaign to the Federal Election Commission, and are updated through October 17 of this year.
