Flier Circulates Offering Voters ‘Fast Cash’ to Fill Seats at Jeb Bush Rally

Fliers were reportedly circulating in Iowa Monday, offering voters “fast cash,” or $25 for two hours of their time, to attend a Jeb Bush rally in Des Moines.

The flier called for “seat fillers” to report to Bush’s rally at 12 p.m. at an Embassy Suites hotel.

Jeff Sadosky, a spokesman for the pro-Marco Rubio Conservative Solutions Pac, shared a picture of the flier on Twitter Monday morning. He wrote, “In Des Moines and need some quick money…apparently Jeb Bush will pay you to listen to him.”

The flier instructed interested indivuduals to report to a “Dale Herbert” at the rally, and when contacted by the email listed, the owner told the Daily Beast, “No we are not officially part of the Bush Campaign. Hopefully we’ll see you there. First come first served.”

The Conservatarian posted a picture of the same flier, which was reportedly given to a student in Iowa who was campaigning for Rand Paul.

According to Vice News, during the Bush rally, a heckler was removed after he stood up and shouted, “We’ve been here for two and a half hours and haven’t gotten paid yet! Where’s that $50?”

Bush’s campaign denied any affiliation with the flier, and when questioned, Sadosky reportedly told the Daily Beast that he has no reason to believe it wasn’t a hoax, and that because of the campaign’s “fundraising troubles,” he would have been surprised that they could afford to pay supporters attend the rally.

“The Jeb folks are saying it is a hoax, don’t have any reason to not believe them, I just saw it on Twitter,” Sadosky said. “Given their fundraising troubles of late, probably makes sense that they couldn’t afford this.”
