"They did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors. The photo-op they did wasn't even accurate. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall. Had they asked for permission, it wouldn't have been granted. ... But I certainly wouldn't have let him wash clean pans, and then take a picture."

-- Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, where Paul Ryan stopped for a photo op yesterday morning. Ryan showed up after the soup kitchen had closed and pretended to wash dishes to show his love for the poors. The charity is non-partisan.
