GREEDY GREEDY MICHAEL D HIGGINS WANTS FIFTY GRAND MORE FROM YOU!

An online campaign is attempting to raise €50,000 to fund President Michael D Higgins‘ re-election bid.

With just weeks to go until we take to the polls on October 26, an online fundraiser was launched with the President’s blessing today and the public are being urged to donate what they can to the campaign.

“With 23 days until Ireland votes for our next President – we need to raise €50,000 to build a winning campaign and a strong mandate. Can you chip in? #APresidentForUsAll”

To date more than 120 donors have donated over €5,800, with some leaving notes outlining why they are backing the President.

 

A wealthy donor said: “So proud of Michael D. Delighted to be able to help.”

However, others took to social media to criticise the online fundraiser.

One person wrote: “I think Higgins should fund his own campaign given his big salary and expenses and pensions etc.”

Another commented: “Spend your own money. Cop on.”

President Higgins faces competition from  Sean Gallagher, Senator Joan Freeman, Liadh Ni Riada SF , Gavin Duffy and Peter Casey.

His campaign states:

“Do you want to see Michael D continue as President?

“He needs your help to make that happen. We need to raise €50,000 to build a campaign that can win – and give Michael D a strong mandate for a second term in office.

“The early polls have been very encouraging. But we can’t – and we won’t – take anything for granted.

In a cringeworthy campaign appeal the Higgins Campaign noted that €10 would cover the cost of printing hanging up and taking down a campaign poster, €20 would fund 1,000 leaflets and €50 would pay for online ads.Higginshiggins and soros
