|These fancy moving pictures weren't cheap y'all|
Let's call a spade a spade : campaigns = EXPEN$IVE, with travel (those jets don't fly themselves folks), accommodations, chow at a local diner, lip balm for ass kissing, loads of advertising. This all adds up to some pretty big cheddar. However there are times when there is a surplus when the candidate is given the boot back to the homeland. How is this money distributed then?
|Donate to charity vs. political party to get a seat at the big table.. hmmm.. what's a candidate to do?|
|You people do not appreciate the difficulty of being a Romney|
One stipulation is the candidate cannot use the money for personal use. Back in the day retiring federal lawmakers could use the money for cars or vacations and other personal use. Thanks to the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 this was nipped in the bud. Sorry Marcus Bachmann that glitter tux will have to wait until Christmas.
