Obama Campaign Spent Nearly $1k on Chick-Fil-A

With the pro and con Chick-Fil-A people ruining facebook this week, the Daily Caller reported that Obama for America spent $62 at Chick-Fil-A this cycle.

While gay activists have staged boycotts of the chain since then, expenditure records at Political Moneyline show that on June 29, 2012 Obama for America spent $62 at Chick-fil-A in Atlanta, Ga.

How much did they spend in the last cycle? As far as I can tell from FEC records, close to a thousand bucks — $877.52.

Of course, that was back when President Obama was opposed to gay marriage, so that’s water under the bridge for the hysterics I’m sure.

Most rational people shrug and go “who cares? Chick-Fil-A is delicious.” But I figured I’d share my research.

If I had a nickel for every time I saw “Hate is Not An American Value” on facebook this week, I’d have about $1. For all of you so concerned about it — namely those who think eating their food is complicity to such “hate”– I guess the man you voted for in 2008 approved of it too. 

The records:

CHICK-FIL-A #00229   393.26
Chick Fil A   61.80
CHICK-FIL-A #00907   16.78
CHICK-FIL-A #01933   11.38
CHICK-FIL-A #1007   394.30
