    Amazing! The guy raises 2 million dollars and the DNV refuses to reimburse the city for the costs it incurred during a fundraising stop.



    And apparently there is a pattern of this...



    Is the DNC hurting for money this bad?
    Here is an idea.Don't provide any tax payer dollars for any fundraiser. That means if they want security then the DNC or RNC hires security guards. If they are having $35,800 per person dinner then they can afford their own damn security. Tax payer dollars should not be used for fundraisers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They guy knew he wasn't going to get refunded, but because of how much money was raised he wants it now? Sounds like the guy wants to cry just for crying.

    Exactly. Franken lost the election, but he won the recount. So now Minnesota has a Frankensenator.

    At first they thought he lost. I still wish he had, but he didn't. Trust me, living here, that recount lasted forever. First he lost, then when he was winning, Coleman kept trying to pull more and more votes out of his ass.

    If it's all "Democratic cheating" then that leaves 2 possibilities. One is that Republicans are better, more honest people. If you believe that, you're incredibly naive. The other is thatRepublicans are incompetent at politics.

    So up to you: either you're an idiot or the Republican leadership is.
