Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) tells us:
“Donations to Donald Trump’s campaign operation surged to $20 million during the first three months of the year, new campaign finance filings show, in the wake of Republicans’ December victory in passing sweeping tax reform legislation.”
So before you get depressed that he’s winning on the donation front, we must ask ourselves what’s a grifter like Comrade Trump doing with all that loot?
He’s spending more than $1 out of every $5 on attorney’s fees this year. Anyone wanna bet some Quatloos that’s gonna continue for a while? When Possum Hollar figgers out that they are paying for his lawyers, it might well slow down raiding Ma’s egg money and Pa’s moonshine funds.
Also I should point out that money is not the same as votes. Charles Koch might donate a ton of Ameros, but he only gets one vote.
