Bearing Drift – The Richmond Screwjob: How Corey Stewart (Almost) Sold His Endorsement for $85,000

From Bearing Drift

After Stewart had given Snyder’s team the endorsement, a funny thing happened. Patrick Lee (check your cell phones) marched up to the Snyder press box and made an additional demand… of $85,000 cash to cover Corey Stewart’s campaign expenses.

Snyder staffers were baffled. Hadn’t Corey Stewart already given his word? Patrick Lee repeated the demand, saying that Stewart staff had not been paid up and so forth.

Snyder staffers did the right thing — they said the endorsement was already given and they expected Stewart to keep their word.

What happened next could only be described as the “Richmond Screwjob” as Patrick Lee ran from the Snyder box shouting “No deal! Stewart did *not* endorse Snyder!!”
