How Many Times Before Mark Padgett Learns a Lesson?

Do you remember this story from January 2011 where the Boys and Girls Club of the TN Valley felt used by City Mayoral candidate Mark Padgett? Well imagine my shock and surprise when I was directed to the Padgett this event. You see here is the Facebook event that has the following descriptor. "Join us for a great night of shopping, wine/cheese, and catching up with old friends. And come meet Mark Padgett, candidate for Knoxville City Mayor Mark is a Knoxville native and small business owner focused on creating jobs and economic growth to strengthen our neighborhoods and improve city services.10% of all sales will go towards Florence Crittenton Agency of Knoxville (Katie’s favorite local charity)." What part of  NO political campaign involvement by charities does Mark not understand?

I guess he missed that part of things not do due when reading the Campaign rules. Do we want him not reading contracts the City enters into like this. Maybe that is why his business is not that successful.
