"Sweet tea, eastern North Carolina barbecue and submachine guns. For a congressional candidate, Tim D'Annunzio knows how to get to the heart of the Tea Party Nation in this part of the country. D'Annunzio, a staunch believer in the rights of law-abiding citizens to maintain and bear arms, staged a "machine gun social" Thursday night at Jim's Gun Jobbery and Indoor Range in Fayetteville. The 52-year-old D'Annunzio, of Hoke County, is one of at least five Republicans seeking the nomination for the 8th Congressional District seat held by Democrat Larry Kissell of Montgomery County. By adding $25 to D'Annunzio's campaign kitty, supporters got the opportunity to fire an Uzi or an MP-5 submachine gun. "I was so good the first time," said 56-year-old Victoria Schott of Charlotte, "I'm going to do it again." In keeping with the traditional political fundraiser, supporters could also help themselves to a plate of fresh-cooked pork barbecue with all the trimmings." http://www.fayobserver.com/Articles/2010/02/12/975554 Now that is a political fund raiser.
