In the course of any campaign, it is necessary to buy supplies and food for fundraisers and other events. John McKay’s 2011 campaign was no different, except that he took his campaign shopping to the tax free Keesler Air Force Base Commissary. The DOD established and maintains commissaries for the subsistence needs of military members and their families. The goods are sold at cost and tax free to service members and dependents. According to DOD regulations:
Individuals […] will not sell or give away commissary purchases to individuals, organizations, or activities not entitled to commissary privileges
Do political campaigns fall under activities not entitled to commissary privileges?
