So after my last press conference announcing I was not running for Mayor predictably I got backlash calling me a pussy, blah, blah, blah. People saying they didn’t realize the tshirts was how I planned on raising money etc. Fine. I’m giving it one last shot. Weird Haircut Seth has set up a GoFundMe link. The goal is to raise 15K by 5pm tomorrow. If we do it I’ll stay in the race. I’ll get the signatures needed and continue with the plan to win Boston. If we can’t raise the money by tomorrow that just proves Stoolies don’t care that much about this. It’s that simple. There is no risk donating either because if we don’t reach the threshold everybody who donated will automatically be refunded one week from making the donation. That’s how Gofundme works.
PS – Just to clarify I’m obviously not making a cent on any donation. It’s all to pay for the costs of the campaign. Every cent has to be legally documented where it goes anyway. The freaking Herald said it would take 1 million dollars to win. I don’t think I need that much but I do have to pay lawyers, Weird Haircut Seth, pay my promo girls who will be all over Boston being hot, campaign offices etc. Lots more than you’d think. And no I’m not going to divert cash from Blackouts and typical Barstool events to raise money. We need that money to pay for the operating costs of running Barstool. All Mayoral funds have to be above and beyond what we’d normally have. If Stoolies really want me to run I’ll go balls to the wall for you/us but I’m not dropping all my own money to do it. I’ve already spent 10K on this or so. That’s my limit. Again I want to run but if I can’t fundraise it’s kind of pointless and I’d just be throwing internet dollars out the window.
