Democrats say Taco bell poll is rigged

San Mateo Daily Journal ^ | August 27, 2003 | Daily Journal wire report

California Democratic Party leaders yesterday blasted the Taco Bell restaurant chain for a sales promotion that counts sales of different menu items as votes in a mock California recall election.

Last week the Mexican-style fast food chain launched the campaign, urging Californians to ?put their vote where their mouth is.? Taco Bell restaurants statewide are tallying each purchase of a crunchy beef taco as a ?vote? for Republican challenger Arnold Schwarzenegger and each purchase of a chicken soft taco as a ?vote? for not recalling Gov. Gray Davis. In the first week of the unofficial poll, ?votes? for any of the remaining 134 candidates could be cast by buying a Grilled Stuft Burrito.

Taco Bell announced the first installment of its Taco Poll results yesterday, in which 54 percent of the votes went to Schwarzenegger and his crunchy beef taco, and just three percent of the votes went to Davis and his chicken soft taco. All other candidates received 43 percent of votes through purchases of the chain?s Grilled Stuft Burrito.

Unhappy with the mock poll results, the chairman of the California Democratic Party, former state Sen. Art Torres said yesterday that ?Taco Bell should stick to making tacos, not rigging elections.?

In a press statement released yesterday, Torres said beef tacos always outsell chicken tacos, which cost twice as much at the restaurant chain. In Sacramento, Torres said, Taco Bell sells beef tacos for 74 cents and chicken tacos for $1.50.

Bob Mulholland, campaign advisor for the California Democratic Party, says the Taco Poll is also ?an investment scam to benefit Schwarzenegger.? He pointed to the actor?s ownership of about $1 million of stock in Pepsico Inc. The company is the former owner of Taco Bell and is still its exclusive soft drink supplier, Mulholland says.

Meanwhile, Taco Bell announced yesterday that after an overwhelming response from consumers to include Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante in the Taco Poll, patrons can now ?vote? for Bustamante by purchasing a Chalupa.

Customers can ?vote? as often as they like at more than 1,000 California Taco Bell restaurants until the day before the Oct. 7 special recall election. The results are tallied and released every Tuesday, and can be viewed at www.tacobell.com.

Some Democrats (well many IMO) have no sense of humor.

Yes, if it had been a serious poll it would have been beef burritos (rep) vs bean burritos (dem) since everyone knows the dems are full of hot air anyway!  :wink:

Actually I used to work at Taco Bell.If I'm not mistaken,the standard beef burrito contains sour cream which is deployed by guns that use air pressure and would contain more air. Even if your weak attempt at humor held up,you're saying the Republicans are more dense,which I agree with.

Sorry,Luv.You do not pass go.You do not collect $200.

While my tenure at a Taco Bell in Denver was about 30 years ago... the standard burrito at that time did not have sour cream. You did however have your choice of either a red or green sauce. The green being the hotter.

The sour cream, I believe, doesn't make it onto a burrito until the "Supreme" class of burritos.

And a a thought, I believe you'll find the air gun uses a piston to propel the sour cream out of the tube, therefore no air actually mixes with the sour cream.

So, go ahead and send me the $200 dollars.

Hey,your joke wasn't very humerous either. We're having a discussion about burritos for fuck's sake. At least I try to be funny than act like I have stick up my ass all the time,or without insulting people.

And no,I don't try that hard.Usually when I joke around on this board,I'm extremely inebriated. It's almost like a stream of consciousness thing.

Hopefully the democrats won't say that taco bell executives who tallied the numbers weren't doing it as a favor to a republican, and have someone hand-count all of the wrappers.
