Governor Blasts Lavish $87 Food Stamp Party
Video of a 13 year-old Evansville girl's extravagant birthday party has drawn the scorn of Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels after it was discovered that the blow-out's nearly $90 price tag was covered by food stamps and welfare money.
Daniels, who has pledged to make welfare reform the centerpiece of a balanced-budget platform should he run for President in 2012, called the footage, "A disturbing misappropriation of tax-payer dollars."
Footage of the festivities, which transpired Saturday afternoon at an Evansville-area park, shows revelers helping themselves to pizza, popcorn, and a family size bag of Doritos. Two Mylar helium balloons bearing birthday messages can also be seen on the tape.
Photos culled from a party-goer's Facebook page reveal that the bash also featured a cake in the shape of Harry Potter, which the individual described as "cool".
"There's nothing 'cool' about food stamp fraud," Daniels said, "This nation is currently operating at a $1.3 trillion deficit. There's nothing cool about that."
Though the video tape showed a man performing magic tricks during the course of the party, it was later determined that he was an unpaid relative and not a professional magician.
