    Don't you agree?
    I'm just not seeing a real huge crime here. Sorry. If it was Obama's people, I still wouldn't see a real huge crime. Mostly because I know that this kind of thing goes on and there's not much of a way around it. I mean, when Obama goes to political rally and Axlerod tags along, what's he supposed to do? Walk? Drive his personal vehicle across the country? What difference does one more body on AF 1 really make in terms of fuel consumption?

    This isn't about Air Force One.

    Have you even read the article that you're commenting on?

    You don't think it is a big deal for federal cabinet members to falsify financial reports? To use FAA and military planes for campaigning (and not pay for their use)? To use federal facilities and staff for campaign purposes?

    This isn't one guy tagging along on a plane ride with the president. It's submitting false financial reports, for one thing.

    Government corruption doesn't bother you?

    Axelrod is supposed to reimburse the federal government for the cost of a first class airline ticket to that destination. If he isn't doing so, he is in violation of federal law.
