Why brag about gifts?

In regard to the April 6 story about Sheriff Margaret Mims, I refused to read beyond the first paragraph, where it was revealed that one of her first phone calls upon learning she had breast cancer was to her political adviser.

What type of person even thinks about leveraging public sentiment through marketing upon learning she has cancer? As a fellow breast cancer survivor, I wish Sheriff Mims well, but I hope future stories are about real people. My first call was to my husband, and I never felt the need to brag about the cash value of the gifts I received.
