The hardreading staff normally likes to ignore Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr(toon), but every now and again we just can’t help ourselves.
Boch Trump-ets upcoming fundraiser
Car czar Ernie Boch Jr. said the guest list for his Aug. 28 private fundraiser for Donald Trump now tops 700 and his office has fielded hundreds of calls from fans of the White House wannabe who want in.
“People are calling me who I haven’t talked to in 30 years!” Boch told the Track. “This thing is more popular than I ever imagined — and it’s pretty bipartisan. This is not a Republican gathering by any stretch of the imagination.”
Boch said he’s even heard from a handful of Democratic officials who want to come to the event but who can’t, for obvious reasons, write a check to the GOP presidential hopeful.
“That’s why were doing cash or check at the door,” he said.
For your money you’ll get “cocktails, live music by rock cover band Fortune, a live broadcast by Herald columnist/radio yakker Howie Carr and food by chef Tony Ambrose.”
Carr’s presence in helping raise money for the bloated billionaire makes perfect sense since he’s a total Trump groupie, with today’s column Exhibit Umpteen. Of course, Carr long ago surrendered his press credentials in favor of GOP fundraising, as the redoubtable Dan Kennedy has noted several times.
