In the midst of yet another “fascist” campaign to silence broadcaster Rush Limbaugh, one woman is reportedly putting his money where her mouth is.
The Dallas Morning News reports that Merritt Tierce, formerly a waitress at Nick & Sam’s, twice waited on Rush Limbaugh and friend Al Michaels. Both times Limbaugh left her $2,000 tips on modest-size checks, once with twenty $100 bills.
“That was like blood money to me,” says Tierce, who served as executive director of the TEA Fund, which provides money to women who can’t afford to get abortions. She donated a “sizable chunk” of Limbaugh’s tip to the TEA fund, saying, “It felt like laundering the money in a good way. He’s such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he’s evil incarnate in some ways.”
Evil incarnate, but a really generous tipper.
