Report: Charity President Objects To Paul Ryan’s Soup Kitchen Photo Op

Ryan didn’t even get permission. He talked volunteers into letting him “wash” already clean pots just for a photo op. Had he asked for permission the non-profit, apolitical organization would have denied the request. Is there anything these guys do that isn’t a lie or fake?

Brian J. Antal, the president of an Ohio charity for the homeless, is objecting to a photo op staged by the Romney campaign on Saturday that featured vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan washing pots and pans that had already appeared to be clean, Felicia Sonmez of the Washington Post reports:

“We’re a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations,” Antal said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. “It’s strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors.”

He added: “The photo-op they did wasn’t even accurate. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall.”
