Cookies and Coffee Now Mean “Come Join Our Church.”

Standard

From the “how many ways can we waste taxpayer dollars” file…

Daniel B. Kapustin has filed a complaint with the state’s Government Accountability board about the September 9 elections held at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Delafield. City buildings are under construction, so the church is the temporary polling location.

The impetus for the complaint? Church members were handing out coffee and cookies to voters. He says that means they were trying to interest voters in joining their church. City Clerk Gina Gresch says they had permission to do it, were not electioneering, and were more than 100 feet from the polling room.

Advice to Kapustin: Don’t stop at the table and accept the coffee and cookies.
