Bauman has stated that the Dems are not happy with the burger chains donations but they are not officially calling for a boycott. 'In-N-Out' clarified that it has donated to both parties in equal amounts. Bauman must not have known this fact.
A call for a boycott of burger joint “In-N-Out” by a prominent California Democrat might be all sizzle and no steak.
California Democratic party chairman Eric Bauman broached the idea of protesting the restaurant last week following reports that the chain had donated money to the GOP.
But on Monday, Bauman seemingly walked back his call to action, in a cryptic statement.
“There is no boycott,” Bauman said, according to The Fresno Bee. “I put one tweet out at 10:30 at night and it turned into a whole thing. We’ve raised so much money in small donations as a result of that one tweet and so many people have engaged with that tweet, almost a million people, so it’s amazing how it became this big boycott.”
