What In-kind Contribution Would a Wine and Spirits Company Provide to the Chabot Camp?

I ran across this. (Read toward the bottom.) The Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America contributed an in-kind contribution to the Chabot campaign on June 26.

Did a wine company donate alcohol to Steve Chabot? Are you even allowed to do that? If so, I wouldn't be suprised if you are allowed to donate cigarettes (attn: R.J. Reynolds in the post below).

Thanks for this information. We used your statistics on Take Back Cincinnati as well. Keep up the great sleuthing.

You'll have to check this, but if I recall correctly, the "booze biz" has donated to Chabot many times in the past. Why they do it is a mystery to me. Not sure what the quid pro quo is, but I expect there's something to be gained.

First off, alcohol is not given to the general voting public. It isn't like the campaign is buying booze for people at festivals or handing it out. Donations can be made to fundraisers where people spend money for tickets so naturally an open bar is expected. Cranley, however, did try and buy votes with his little gas stunt...why don't you get your head out of your ass? Partisanship is fine as long as you don't live in a bubble world where you think Democrats are the perfect party, because they are just as unethical as the Republicans.
