Queen Meg to Grace Sutter Club Fundraiser Featuring John McCain, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney, Then File Initiative with Legislative Counsel

One day after first greeting her adoring subjects outside a gala Beverly Hills event, Queen Meg of California will grace Sacramento with an unusual and highly-anticipated double appearance this Friday, April 23. 

Queen Meg will first appear at a fundraiser at the Sutter Club with John McCain, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney, then accompany her subjects to the Legislative Counsel’s office where they will file the paperwork for the initiative to formalize her coronation as Queen Meg of California.  The initiative will read:

"In honor of her $150 million campaign treasury, the people of California do hereby crown Meg Whitman as Queen Meg of California.  Her husband Griffith Harsh IV is crowned Prince Griffith of Palo Alto, and the Whitman-Harsh royal motto shall be 'Healthcare for the nobility, Education for the few, Prisons for all.'"

WHAT:
Queen Meg Graces Sutter Club Fundraiser, Proceeds to File Initiative Papers
WHEN:
Friday April 23, 12 Noon appears at Sutter Club; 12:15 p.m. departs to Capitol
WHERE:
Sacramento Sutter Club, 1220 Ninth St.

The initiative is expected to be the first in American political history to attempt to install royalty in state government. “At the end of the day, my argument is that if I can run Goldman Sachs, I can rule California,” said Queen Meg.  “I made a mint from my march up the corporate ladder.  Don’t I now deserve the crown?”

Malinda Markowitz, RN, co-President of the California Nurses Association added, “Nurses say: don’t buy it.  No one should be able to bid on California, whether it’s a pretend Queen or a billionaire CEO.”
