Generation Opportunity, a Koch-funded front group whose goal is to convince young people that they don’t need health insurance, sponsored a tailgate party on the campus of the University of Miami on Saturday.

According to an email by Generation Opportunity’s communication director, David Pasch, the Koch brothers money allowed their organization to “roll in with a fleet of Hummers, F-150’s and Suburbans, each vehicle equipped with an 8’ high balloon bouquet floating overhead.”

“We hired a popular student DJ from UMiami,” the email continued, and “set up OptOut cornhole sets, beer pong tables, bought 75 pizzas, and hired 8 ‘brand ambassadors’ aka [scantily clad female] models with bullhorns to help out.”

The email failed to indicate who won the cornholing competition.

“Student activists independently brought (lots of) beer and liquor for consumption by those 21 and over. Oh yeah, and we educated students about their healthcare options outside the expensive and creepy Obamacare exchanges,” Pasch concluded.

How many of the attendees opted out of Obamacare is not known.
