Lynn Compton shows the height of insensitivity in her fundraising effort scheduled for Oct. 5 in which guests are invited to come in “hobo” attire. They are invited to slurp “hobo stew” as they party while overlooking a nearby homeless encampment in Oceano.
Let’s give her the benefit of doubt and say it was her handlers who thought this would be a great hoot for her wealthy supporters, but unless she was on the moon, she had to approve this cruel prank. When questioned about the event, Ms. Compton’s comment was that her opponent should lighten up.
This is a rather shallow response for someone who wants to serve as an elected official.
Could it be that she feels she has nothing to lose because she believes the homeless don’t vote?
