CRYSTAL LAKE - Nothing like the visual of a bunch of Republicans gathered around a pool in bikinis, speedos and one-piece suits. State Rep Barbara Wheeler is getting some national attention for her fundraiser this weekend - a "Teeny Weeny Bikini Martini Party" in northwest suburban Crystal Lake.
Wheeler, a Republican, said she started the event as a simple martini fundraiser, but decided to transform it to a "Teeni Weeni Bikini Martini" event after "my girlfriend opened this ridiculously awesome pool in her backyard."
Saturday's event is a family affair, Wheeler said, so the bikini she'll be wearing will be covered with a sundress until it gets dark and the kids go home. "That's when everyone eventually brings out their bathing suits - and especially their bikinis and speedos."
Those wearing a one-piece swimsuit pay $250, a bikini $500 and a Speedo $1000.
There's no instructions on the invite about leaving camera phones in the car, so attenders could be posting some really interesting Facebook entries Sunday morning. (above photo from McHenry Co Blog)
