SC Womens’ Caucus: Makeup Gifts Sending Mixed Messages?

|| By FITSNEWS || The S.C. General Assembly Woman’s Caucus is taking some heat over party favors it doled out to a roomful of female nonprofit leaders.

The caucus – working in concert with the S.C. Association of Non-Profit Organizations (SCANPO) – held an event last week in downtown Columbia, S.C. for the purpose of celebrating charities and their “contributions to our state and her people.”

Great, right?  Sure …

But the gift bags doled out to these female leaders after the event left a little something to be desired.  Or a lot to be desired, in the opinion of some recipients.

“(Each bag) could have been filled with books about empowerment,” one attendee wrote. “It could have held an iPad to be used in their missions. It could have had a lapel pin with the (Womens’ Caucus) logo.  Even better it could have had a check for their charities.  Instead, each strong, compassionate woman was given a bag of Mary Kay makeup.  Now, Mary Kay has done a lot to empower women but what was their intended message?  ‘Thank you for your commitment to SC; please put on some lipstick.'”

Ouch …

Leave it to South Carolina lawmakers, right?

Why do women have smaller feet? So they can stand closer to the sink…

Funny. Even funnier is that probably all the women complaining wear makeup.

How about this one: Why don’t housewives wear wrist watches? Because there’s a clock on the stove.

Are they forced to take these gifts? If not, then they need to quit stop bitching. I’m guess most if not all could use a little help with their looks.

Don’t worry T. By the time of the election, the economy will be doing fine and after President Clinton is in office things will be so good for the middle class even you will have no excuse for sitting on your ass and not getting a job.

It isn’t Bankrupt – Women are better with money than men! In fact the money they raise goes to fund scholarships for Highschool students in each members districts – guess this is why they take free gifts for the gift bags??? So they can save money? Men I guess would have bought an I Pad for each bag? Insults – that is all Grand Tango knows! you really don’t like women do you? Does Domestic violence run in your family?

No it is all women in the General Assemblt – it is Bi-Partisan! Miracle Women can manage to do that in politics.

Makeup is kind of personal. I wonder if the African-American women received different varieties of makeup.

You would think a successful woman would be insulted by an empowerment book unless they thrive of victimhood..

Bottom line: Somebody’s lying. And as long as the truth stays hidden…that’s all FITS and the Democrat Party care about.
If it were a Republican…there would be a MEDIA crucifixion, and witch hunt, until the FILTHY truth was uncovered…
FITS is just trying to add layers as interference for Reid, and the Democrat Party…

No, he will not because the right wing media, Fox, Rush, Beck, Drudge, etc. Etc customarily reports news that is fake or designed to mislead. This is nothing new. It would do no good to make the stuff up if you were going to retract it later. .

“Leave it to South Carolina lawmakers, right?”

So here’s my question:

Who paid for the contents of the “gift bag”?

If it was taxpayer money, then the gifts weren’t cheap enough.

They had a much nicer gift but Jenny Horne is the Treasurer of the Women’s Caucus. She drank all the dues and gave them her leftover makeup.

If it was a good brand of makeup I wouldn’t have any problems. I’d like it. I would rather have baked goods.

Beggars can’t be choosers. I’m guessing Mary Kay donated the make-up kits. It was meant as a “party favor”. Get over it!
