Political Pizza

Sometimes, even pizza can be partisan.

In its campaign against Rep. Steve Pearce, the Republican candidate for Senate in New Mexico, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund filed a new government disclosure this week:

Expenditure Description: pizza for canvassers
Date Expended = 09/18/2008
In OPPOSITION to Steve Pearce

The cost for the Pizza Party? $119.12.

So let's see...at Mario's Pizza and Ristorante, which is where the canvassers ate, that'll get you roughly three "giant" pizzas (16 slices each) and one large (8 slices). If each person ate three slices, our calculations show that could feed about 15 canvassers and three supervisors. Steve Pearce better watch out.
