Before politics - we must dance!

Lori Kurtzman reports that Republican 2nd Congressional District candidate Tom Brinkman hadn't shown up at his election-night party at Million's in Mount Lookout as of 9 p.m.

Turns out he and his wife, Cathy, had a Tuesday night dance class at Community Methodist Church in Hyde Park. Their lesson: rhumba

His supporters said they had a good week, sending out 450,000 mailings in the final days before the election. Brinkman apparently picked up most of the cost himself with a late $50,000 donation, according to a Federal Elections Commission report filed Saturday.

Dance your way off the stage and into political oblivion, Brinkman!

I'd pay good money to see Brinky do the rhumba right off the local political stage. And good riddance!

Better report bright & early to your wife's printing business, Brinkman!

You've got a $50,000 "loan" to pay off!

What an idiot...

Tom Brinkman, AKA Chris Finney's butt-boy, has plenty of time for dance lessons now...
